There are ten categories and you must choose one category from the list at the start of your entry.
You are eligible to enter more than one category with multiple entries, as long as the work submitted meets the category criteria. The Awards Committee may move an entry from one category to another, if it considers this to be more appropriate than the original one chosen.
