MFS01-First Artwork Name (the actual name of the piece)
MFS02-Second Artwork Name (the actual name of the piece)
MFS03-Third Artwork Name (the actual name of the piece) 

Artwork images must comply with CaFE's guidelines, which can be found at the following URL: See "Media Preparation" for how to size your images.
