It is not quite obvious if there is official time until which app submission still be accepted :)

According to rules:

You’ve got 3 weeks to develop a new app, until the 9th July 2012

Countdown widget, right now, says 1 day 10:11:47:

To close voters: I see no reason to close this as "too localized." Anyone who thinks "When did the 2012 App Showdown stop accepting submissions?" would be an acceptable question now (or would close it as a duplicate of this) should really not consider this too localized. – Eliah Kagan Feb 11 '13 at 12:57

I would definitely submit before the deadline, given the errors people seem to be having with packaging/uploading.

In any case, even if your submission goes through, after say 1200 UTC on July 10, 2012 (to account for time zone differences), the App Review Board can simply decline to consider it since it was late.

So, deadline is 23:59 UTC on July 09, 2012, right? – wik Jul 8 '12 at 10:55
Yes, it is..... – izx Jul 8 '12 at 10:56
Just wondering, because rules says until the 9th July 2012, but according to countdown widget we have one more day, i.e. still can submit anytime on Monday. – wik Jul 8 '12 at 10:58
Monday is 9th July, you can submit any time until 23:59 UTC (which can be as early as 12:00 in your time zone) – izx Jul 8 '12 at 11:02
Okay, but how about this:… is it official even page? – wik Jul 8 '12 at 12:03

The Ubuntu App Developer Showdown will stop on 9th July 2012, at midnight, 23:59 UTC.

From David Planella, who is App Developer Community Liaison and one of judges for current contest:

Any submissions after Monday 00:01 UTC will not qualify for the contest.
