  1. Okay then.

    But what’s in it for the entrants – or is just something for a cause?

    I think such things should be made clear in cases like this.

    Nice one Su’Eddie. Definitely submitting stuff.

    1. @seun-odukoya, for a cause!
      Every person who submits is entitled to a copy of the collection soon as it is out.
      That’s about most of it :) Thanks!
