Keep in mind that the mods took an extended Christmas break last year, from mid-December all the way through New Year’s.
With the extension, the Hagah Art Contest submission period should wrap up on October 2nd. Going off of the Helryx and Artakha contests, the voting should take around 11 days; call it 2 weeks to account for any delays, which brings us to October 16th.
Then there’s the three week break between contests, and the Tuyet MOC submission should start around the first week of November. The entire Artakha Contest, from the opening of the MOC submissions to the end of the final art poll, took 71 days.
Maybe we could do the Art portion, then have Christmas break before opening the three week art submission? It would basically be another extended art submission period.
