My apologies, this should of course be November 2, 22:00 UTC.

after conversations with several national coordinators and the
international team, we had to decide to slightly extend the unextendable
deadline to allow nominations from all countries. The *new deadline is: 2
October, 22:00 UTC*. This is the same as Greenwich (winter)time, GMT.
Please note that another extension will not be possible. This is already
intrusive on the timeline of the international jury.
I realize that many countries worked hard to make the deadline of tonight
- unfortunately quite a few were having problems meeting that deadline with
the quality we would like to see in the process. They would have to take
shortcuts (leaving out jury members, appointing nominations by the
organizers themselves) to make it tonight, so extending the deadline will
hopefully improve the quality of the finals.
If your country had to take such shortcut, and would be able to come up
with a better validated result in the extra 46 hour, please send me an
email about it - and you will also get this extension, and be able to
re-submit your nominees.
Thank you very much to all the organizers that did plan enough space in
their timeline so that they were able to account for sick people, accidents
and technical problems and submit their nominations in time.
on behalf of the international team.
