Thanks for asking. I was working under the assumption that the rest of the details would be the same as usual - let me repeat them: deadline on 31 October for all countries, 10 images can be nominated per national competition (which might be the top-10 or a different distribution if needed). It is possible to submit them under embargo, by sending them directly to me, keeping at least one of the jurors in copy. We will not release the names of the nominees publicly, until the international jury report is published, probably by early December.
At the same time, as always, you would make me very happy if you could at least send the 10 images one day before the deadline :)
