Taking a photograph of your entry

• Make sure there is plenty of light on your entry
• Daylight (not direct sunlight) will be better than nighttime with lights on
• Show half of the Pilot pen/s on edge of entry, showing Pilot logo
• Take the photograph from around 30 – 40cms above your entry
• Tap the phone’s screen to focus
• Avoid shadows – try with and without the flash

Uploading Your Entry via our Online FormPilot_Image_Colouring

Taking the picture on your phone / tablet?
Photograph your entry (using tips from above), then go to the entry form.

Uploading from computer?

If you have downloaded your photo entry to your computer, go to the entry form,
fill in the details, click upload and choose your image from your folder.
