Photos can be submitted until the end of the period and then voting occurs on those images until Awards are assigned. This gives all images, regardless of when they were submitted, an equal chance to win. Submission deadlines are always up to midnight GMT at the end of the period and weeks run Sunday-Saturday.

Daily: 3pm the following day
Weekly: Midnight GMT the following Wednesday
Monthly: Usually the 2nd Tuesday of the next month
Yearly: Varies

Surely the earlier we submit an image within the period, the longer there is for voting to occur for that picture.

Or is there a submission phase, after which all images are judged together, like in yachting or horse racing where there is a general 'milling about' followed by the 'judging period' (On your marks, get set, ImageDuel!)?

It's sort of a combination of both. After all of the images are submitted there is a voting period where the new images (with less votes) get more votes than the older images to balance things out.

I hope this helps.
