I think the answer is yes, but a mod should clarify this. The guidelines say the creation must be able to fit on two 32x32 baseplates or smaller, or on a single 48x48 sized baseplate (I don't think that means it HAS to be on a baseplate, but that it should fit within these dimensions).
Furthermore, the Castle Spaces category requires you to build at least two connecting castle spaces, which suggests you might be building on several baseplates, perhaps a few 16x16 spaces, and the entry would be valid so long as it adds up under the 2 32x32 size limit, so the 48x48 doesn't really apply to this category, if I am interpreting the rules correctly.
The spirit of the competition is more about quality than quantity, so I don't see why you couldn't build using smaller baseplates...
