    1. Dear CloudsGalore,
      We understand the deadline is 23:59 on September 30th. But if you want to be sure, please try to contact directly with the organizers.
      On the other hand we always recommend, if possible, not to wait till the last day for submitting your entry.
      Kind regards,
