Hi Everyone,

One final friendly reminder that catalogue advertising needs to be sent to Courtney at by MIDNIGHT TONIGHT (AEST).

Unfortunately, if you are unable to send through your completed advert by this time they will not be included in the catalogue. There is still a significant amount of work required to get these ready for your viewing in a couple of weeks which means a very strict 'no exceptions' deadline.

Thank you for your continued support of such a wonderful event and if you have any questions please do feel free to send Courtney a DM or email.
