report on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT began settled observations of the field of
GRB 111107A  73 s after the BAT trigger (Siegel et al.,
GCN Circ. 12534).

Preliminary detections and 3-sigma upper limits using the UVOT
photometric system (Poole et al. 2008, MNRAS, 383, 627)
for the early exposures are:

The magnitudes in the table are not corrected for the Galactic extinction
due to the reddening of E(B-V) = 0.14 in the direction of the burst
(Schlegel et al. 1998).
