I've submitted a proposal for a 2012 art grant and I haven't received an email confirmation. This is my first time and I've been going crazy reading the submission guidelines over and over. They say "You will receive an email confirming we have received your proposal" and that's it--it suggests that an automated email will immediately reply, but it also insists you should never ever send your proposal more than once. Thus, at 6 in the morning on the day of the deadline, I sat watching my inbox for 6 hours then finally decided that confirmation emails would be sent by and by in the following week. Now, I'm extremely concerned that nothing was received by BMORG and I'm up the creek--is there anyone out there who has submitted a proposal and knows how soon one should expect such an email? I'm about to email email@example.com
asking about it, but it would be a faux pas on a level I won't explore until another few days go by.. I know I'm the competition, but my grant only requests a couple thousand dollars, so I'm not very serious competition...can anyone ease my mind or save my grant?
