How can I be certain I've submitted? 

I received a "thank for your submission" email. But I fear it was a minute or two after the 11.59 deadline.

I was delayed by all the technical details of uploading and it was such a panic!

The story was finished about ten minutes earlier.

Don't worry, they give you a bit of grace time. The submission clock is at zero now but the submission window is still open.

I've had occasions where software has crashed and the upload link wasn't there and I uploaded my R3 Short story piece last year at 5.04am in the UK...i.e. 4 minutes after deadline and it was fine.

Have a drink and relax. Well done for getting it done and uploaded. Huzzah!

Oh thank you so much!!

That's exactly what I was doing - a whiskey and dry! But I'm pleased to know I'm celebrating not commiserating.
