Seekers can establish a deadline for receiving proposed solutions. Be sure you submit your solution proposal as soon as possible, even if it is before the deadline. When choosing between solutions of similar quality, the earlier submission is likely to be preferred.
If Seekers receive a solution proposal they want to accept, they reserve the right to award a Challenge before the deadline.
InnoCentive recommends that you submit your solution proposals upon completion without waiting until the deadline date. Unless otherwise specified in the Challenge statement, all submissions must be received by 11:59 PM (U.S. Eastern Time) on the deadline date.
