Sorry to raise the issue of licensing once more, but I think the words you
used are slightly confusing.

 * "we cannot accept entries that require commercial software or other
software that is not provided as free software or under GPL." 
  -> This seems to imply that GPLed software is not free software.

 * "The participants agree that their application free software, protected
by the GPL licence."
  -> This is python we're talking about, and the GPL is not the default
licence in the community, even if it is commonly used. I think imposing
the GPL, rather than, for instance, the Python Licence, is an error. 

There's nothing about the maximium number of submission that an individual
can make.
