I think the “minimum quality criteria” is means the quality of the design, it could also be the creativity of the design instead of the resolution. Agree with Ingkong, this is a tough one, I think they ask for something different, something with our own style!

I guess I will have to start from scratch with mine. It’s going to be hard as I really liked what I had.

I’m not sure what it is I’m doing incorrectly. When I go to reduce the image to the size they request, it completely destroys all the detail I’ve put in my pic. I spent hours making Bane and TDK from scratch, and all I get is a rejection letter. The entire image at 640X480 becomes incredibly pixelated and looks nothing like the images I’ve seen submitted for this or other contests. Its a huge difference and I’m not sure what is up.
