Image files may be transferred to the Society in three different ways. These are:
- via our dedicated file upload facility (at bottom left of the current page when logged in); or
- as email attachments.
The Society's dedicated file upload facility is the preferred method for transferring images - both for the applicant and the Society. Note that this facility is available only to logged-in users. One or more files may transferred at a time, uploads are relatively fast and also reliable. Each file upload is limited to 6MB. A 4MB file upload generally completes in a period of a fe seconds although the time obviously depends upon the speed of the link being used. Note that files cannot be overwritten once uploaded, so make sure everything is in order before uploading.
Email service providers generally limit the size of attached files to about 8 or 10MB although the maximum acceptable size varies according to a number of service-related factors. In general, only one image file should be attached to each email. Please ensure that the relevant Distinction Application Reference Number is included in emails sent to the Society's Distinctions Office.
Please do not attach award or distinction panel images to the on-line application form.
