An ingenious idea, but there has to be some way of saying that this sample
of works were all realized and completed before XX date, rather than updated
and improved upon in the period between the competition deadline and when
the jury members get to hear the work (which might be a week or so before
someone else completed their work - in the process of revision, a week's
worth of work can mean a great deal of progress!)

I suppose the competition could post the works on a web site, but they would
have to budget for the labour. See my other posting about simply mailing
the entries directly to the jury members.
