We (Romania) are importing the pictures as we speak, since we went for
a semi-manual approach that means cleaning up the description and
categories. This takes a lot of time (I'm doing at the very most 50
images in 2.5-3h every night) and we wouldn't be able to handle the
deadlines any other way.

On the other hand, if you have people with lots of spare time that can
do the import after Oct 1st, it is perhaps a better solution.
