the contest closes in about 26 hours, and i havent heard from walt. presumably i will soon.
if walt doesnt come back to the forum in a timely manner (give him a day or two) the contest will still come to its conclusion. either way, any entries not submitted by jun 30 at 00:00 utc (thats the *beginning* of jun 30, midnight, utc) will have to wait until 2018 and resubmit then.
they wont be deleted, but submissions only count when the contest is open.
