Should I enter similar SAMs as different entries or as a single entry?

I am working on an Serverless App for this hackathon that has multiple similar SAM templates. One happens on an upload to an S3 bucket and another happens on a schedule. I'm wondering whether these should be multiple entries or the same entry. They do essentially the same thing, but on different triggers.

    That's a good question. If they are different enough that you'd be publishing on the Serverless App repository three times, then you should submit them to Devpost as three separate submissions.

    We do have rules about multiple submissions: "A Maker may submit more than one Submission, but each Submission must be unique and substantially different from each of the Maker’s other Submissions, as determined by the Poster and/or the Administrator. “Submission” means, collectively, the Application, video, entry information and any other material or information submitted by a Maker in connection with entry in the Hackathon."

    I recommend making different demo videos and explaining what makes them different from each other even if the differences are small. Does that make sense?

    Best,
