I would like to enter as well, but I don't know what to do.
In fact i don't know how to make something innovative about this theme, and i'm afraid i'm gonna make something "expected"...

You can transform images that have a lot of space into other image with compression formats (JPEG, for example) that really take much less space without much loss of quality. Just make sure you compress the file right after you've finished the entire picture in order to have the least loss of overall quality. This way you can make large complex pictures without really much space. I don't think people will be looking whether the banners picture quality is so excellent that you can actually distinguish every ayu pore if you zoom in a lot in the picture, so the space restriction shouldn't really be much of a problem imo.

I know you compress JPGS, but it was more that 500kb is little if you want to make an entire collage or maybe wallpaper. Banners don't take much, but I'd guy want to make 1000x1000px stuff, 500kb is too little.

Unfortunately I missed the deadline due my own project which I had to finish for the third semester. I am done now, but still love to enter this competition. AHS-staff, is there a possibilty to delay the deadline (I still do not see any entries, even though this is the first day after the 4th of May) so there are still some members who can work on their pieces?

Unfortunately, I was so busy with the uni that I even forgot there was a contest so I guess next time I might participate.

Good luck to all the contesters
