I'd think that the year of completion would simply be the year the collection was completed rather than the years the individual pieces in the collection were completed.

I understand that unpublished work can be copyrighted as a group of items, rather than doing each one individually. If this collection of artwork spans more than one year, can they still be put on the same form? Just that the form asks for "year of completion" and not YEARS... Anybody know? I'm submitting a bunch of new work but have a handful of things from previous years I'd like to tack on there too...
