EHQ is very strict about file names of images, videos and documents. We don't do this to be complicated, but to ensure that all participants can download your files, regardless of their operating system, device or strict firewalls and Anti Virus software. 

All of the below are ILLEGAL characters and must be removed from your file name before you upload it to EHQ. We recommend to just use letters and numbers and describe the file as best as you can. 

Something like "Foreshore Reserve (Masterplan): 15/06/2017 * version 15 & final!" is not only going to be invalid, but is bad practice too. Rather have a simple and descriptive name in lower case letters, like "foreshore reserve masterplan"
