So, I went on a long hiatus.. and now that I'm back and entering challenges again, I always seem to think that "1 day" means "due at midnight." This is the second or third challenge in the past few weeks that I've ran out at some point in the evening/night, rushed a bunch of photos, then quickly came back home just to realize that 1) Taking photos when rushed seldom turns out well for me, and 2) The challenge deadline isn't even for another 24 hours. Doh!

Depends in what time zone you're in. At the bottom of each page you can see DCP time.
I live in The Netherlands and I'm about 6 hours ahead of DCP time. The moment I write this, it's 12.02am on June 23, and my clock shows 6.07 local time.
Challenges end either Thuesdays at 24.00pm or Sundays at 24.00pm DCP time. In my local time that is 6.00am Wednesdays and 6.00am Mondays.

And for me it's 9pm Tuesdays and Sundays, so when folks complain about trying to stay awake for roll-over I'm having to remind myself that it IS past bedtime in some places :)

That's me!

I'm only 1 hour off from the site time so it's 11:00 P.M. for me and I wake up at 3:30 in the morning so needless to say I never make roll over. I did once when there was a holiday off from work on a Monday. That was cool because it is my highest rated photo to date and I got to watch the good scores come in.
