If you have not contributed to Newswest before, but would like to upload photos to the gallery, you should submit your request ahead of time to a board member.
That way your name and email will be on the list of those whose registrations will be pre-approved and upgraded.
All other registrations that do not match the list of contributors or members of Newswest may be removed without prior notice. Only fully approved registrations may post to public galleries. Fully approved registrations also get more space for uploading.
