    I submitted a CD containing 7 images along with the entry fees. I am not sure if a “cover letter” folder was included in the CD regarding my interpretation of the people, places, things categories since I did not mark each entry specifically with the category identifier.
    Bird images were included in Things (living things), while the Places and Things (non-living) were self explanatory.
