Step 2: Check the categories & fees

Make sure you enter your work in the correct category and check the entry fees. The Creative Circle will endeavour to move entries to more appropriate categories during entry processing and prior to judging. However it remains your responsibility to submit your entry into the correct. During judging the Jury are not allowed to move entries between categories.
