Why are some Limited Submissions not advertised or held as internal competitions?

While every effort is made to adhere to our preferred Limited Submissions timeline, there are instances when the interval between becoming aware of a limited submission and the sponsor’s deadline makes it impractical to follow our process. In those cases, broad announcements may not be made, expedited reviews with limited or no feedback comments may be performed, and/or submission slots may be awarded on a first-identified basis. Generally, if there are less than six weeks between the identification of the opportunity and the sponsor’s deadline, a competition will not be run, and the competition will be listed as Open or submission permission will be awarded on a first-identified basis.
