Step Three: Once you have submitted your expression of interest an organiser will email you a 'Contributor Entry Form'. You need to complete and return it and pay your £20.00 entry fee which covers your entry in the Festival programme. Your £20 will help to cover some of the costs of printing the Festival Programme.
