  2. The winning design will become the society's official QSL card design.
  3. The winning design will be chosen by a vote of the society membership. The vote will be conducted according to the Approval Voting method (see CGP Grey's explanation). The vote will be conducted at the SUWS Christmas Party on the 10th December 2015 at The Crown Inn.
  4. Designs must consist of artwork 109mm x 152mm (4.29" x 5.98") at 300dpi. Templates available here under the heading "Postcards". Please note: this includes a bleed area, so make sure your design takes this into account.
  5. Designs may be single- or double-sided, but in the latter case must make provision for the contact information usually put on a QSL card. (See our gallery for examples.)
