That takes you to a page that has an "Enter Your Project" button near the top, on the right.

If you've never registered on the site, it's a simple process, just fill out the short form. This is open to all -- you do not have to be a subscriber to the website.

Good luck!

Announcement points to contest rules (how to enter), and that points to the gallery of already entered work. There is no link to actually upload the photographs regardless whether I am logged in or not. I had no success contacting webmaster etc.
