Conventional or Sumo

sorry in advance for my ignorance, but can you sumo deadlift in comps or just conventional? Everyone I've seen does conventional and that's all I do but I was just curious. Also, at what point does a conventional dead turn into a sumo? When the legs surpass the width of your shoulders? Thanks much.
