Does anyone know when digital entries are being judged? Prints? I am slammed at the studio and can only come Sunday. I'd love to see my print/digital entries come up, but know I most likely won't.

The judging will start on Sunday morning.
There will be three print rooms and four digital rooms set up this year.
The schedule is never set in stone, and it tends to vary as the logistics dictate, and each year is different from the previous years.
Usually, we start off with two print rooms judging prints for merit, a room judging the Artist entries for Merit on prints then switching to digital entries, and a room judging the wedding albums with that room switching to digital Photographic Open entries after the digital albums are completed, and a couple of rooms starting on digital entries for merit.
For logistical reasons, images requesting critiques are judged first with non-critique images following later in the week. This is done in order to get the critique images finished so that the judges will have time to critique them.
A couple of questions -
Did you submit prints or files?
Did you request a critique? If you requested a critique, it is more likely that your images will be judged on Sunday or early Monday. If you did not request a critique, chances are your images will be judged sometime Monday through Wednesday.

I did not request a critique, and I submitted one print and 3 files.

Chances are your images will be judged in the Monday through Wednesday time frame. If you had requested a critique, your images would be judged sometime on Sunday or on Monday morning - but even if you don't manage to see your images judged, the educational opportunity of watching others being judged is still worth your time.

Rick, how long after judging before they normally post the results?

The results are posted as soon as they are all checked for accuracy. The results have been posted as early as a day or two after the judging concluded on Wednesday, and as late as a week or two following the judging. Two years ago, the results were on-line before I got on the plane on Thursday afternoon to come home from the judging. If there are any computer related data compilation issues, it could delay the posting until everything has been checked for accuracy. I wish I could be more definite, but it varies - after the IT guys have everything checked the results go on line - but the key thing to make sure that all of the data is absolutely correct before the results are published - no one wants to see results indicating that they merited all four images only to find out that the data was actually transposed and was really someone else's results, and they really didn't merit any.
