It's difficult to make a comparison because we had only two days of 
contest and because the number of countries is higher than last year.

In addition last year it was the first time of a larger participation, 
so the users experienced the event and they were able to understand the 
rules. So I suppose that a lot of participants had kept the images in 
their hard-disks waiting WLM.

For instance I took a lot of photos before September and wait WLM to 
upload them.

Anyway don't wait a small number of photos. I think that over a specific 
level "more than thousand" doesn't make a difference.
