Hello :) Thank you for holding this contest! :) I submitted my entry on dA roughly an hour before the end of the countdown : fav.me/d6ctqcx and also submitted to the contest folder. However, it is still not in the contest folder... I know you must be very busy with last minute entrants so I'm sorry for bothering you, but I see that entries submitted both a little earlier and later than mine already appeared in the folder, and no more entries have appeared since, so I was wondering if there was a problem with my submission? Thank you very much again!
