It is now possible to have your photograph on your ICCF profile page. Any BCCA player can now send a JPEG picture of at least 200 x 200 pixels to their ‘National Delegate’ together with their ICCF ID. It will then be uploaded to your ICCF profile. This is a nice new feature and we would encourage our members to consider personalising their profile in this way. Players CANNOT upload their own photograph, it has to be actioned by your ICCF delegate.
