What difference does it make if I upload works by two different authors on the same form?

We don't want to make things difficult for the entrants, but we have to manage a huge amount of data, match up the entries to the appropriate categories, send the finalist certificates to the finalists, and send the awards to the eventual winners. Keeping the individual authors separated makes managing the data much less confusing and less likely to be messed up.

We really appreciate the extra time you take to help make things as easy as possible on our end.
