We were made aware that some entrants were encountering issues submitting their entries on the day of the deadline. If you submitted your entry prior to 1pm on Friday, September 25th (date of deadline), your entry should have been received correctly. We have already sent emails to entrants whose entries came up with an error, who had missing information or any additional issues. To be safe, we are meticulously comparing paid entry fees with submissions to make sure no one was missed. Notification of acceptance was to go out Tuesday-Wednesday, Sept. 29th-30th. This may still happen, but could be delayed as we wait for response from the entrants that were affected by the technical glitch.

We have not had this happen before and have called our web provider for assistance who is still sorting out the issue. Please contact BOTH Gwen@dutchartgallery.net AND Katherine@dutchartgallery.net if you have any concerns about your entry having been received. We apologize for the potential delay in notification.
