So I submitted my build (Mercy Tower) 5~ minutes before deadline, and it still hasn't/won't show up.
Basically, I'm wondering if this is a bug, or if I'm dumb and just submitted it wrong... or if it's completely normal.

May I use Optifine for better antialiasing (with default texture pack) so that things in the distance don't look so grainy or does "no Optifine" mean absolutely no Optifine?

Optifine does a lot more than just better anti-aliasing by default. The rule is there because it's hard to say you can use it but must check off this, that and tweak this setting plus only 2x AA... etc, to be okay or not okay. Maybe you know the right balance of settings but I can't say what they are or if a participant or judge will notice / care. That said, it's up to you... but safest is to not use for at least 50% screenshots.

Been reading about and can't find it anywhere, but I may just be daft. Are multiple submissions allowed?

I personally think it's fine. It's obviously not part of your main building and we're judging the skyscraper, not the surroundings. A tree isn't going to change anything significant in terms of judge scores.

It's okay to build with MCPE but we require a download for contest entries so that visitors and judges can enjoy the maps. As far as I know, there are several ways to convert Java Edition to Bedrock Edition but not the other way around. MCPE is Bedrock Edition. I found one tool to do it but looking into it more before recommending.

If you do build in MCPE and enter the contest, provide a downloadable map in Bedrock format. We'll figure out best way to handle it both on PMC and for the contest purposes.

I don't own a personal account, however, I am building this build solo. Am I still permitted to submit the build under this account?

"You are not allowed help from other players on the build itself."

Can I get feedback/advice during my building process, or does this rule apply to that too?

That's fine and a wise move. Feedback is essential during a creative process. Other players are not allowed to help build the map itself, aka place blocks.

Do I have to make something that is sized so players can fit it?

Or could I make loads of small scale skyscrapers?

That's up to you. We are encouraging participants to focus on a main skyscraper so that you have time to put a lot of thought and ideally details into it. We're allowing more than one because sometimes skyscrapers are constructed to compliment each other as a group. I'm not sure what you have in mind but it does sound interesting.
