While I do not have full knowledge of dt singing and such, I know 
it will probably take longer than 12 days to create a truly 
contest-worthy entry, especially with people on vacations and 
such.  I would recommend the deadline being the end of January 
and the judging time being the first two weeks of February, but 
that is just me.

Have a great day,
