In addition please email a digital copy of your photo to csms@noc.ac.uk in a commonly accepted image format (JPEG/TIFF/BMP). All images are requested at high resolution but no more than 10Mb due to email limits. Please name your photograph so that credit can be allocated when appropriate (e.g. john_r_smith_1.jpeg). and to avoid filename duplication.
