Responded in a little over 24 hours with a polite and apologetic form letter. It had a link to a helpful website that I spent the evening on and helped me to majorly improve my letter, Jane Friedman's blog. Thanks for the quick reply and useful information :-)

Emailed the submissions coordinator re request for full. MS is 15MB and could be attached to a single email. Alternatively I could upload a chapter at a time to keep the uploads under 2MB.

Request for full at one week. Only 2MB allowed, so I sent an abbreviated proposal and one chapter as there are a lot of photos and the full is 15MB.
