How about letting people submit a resolution suitable for web consumption plus 
an info at which maximum resolution the image is available, if the original 
content is pixel based? Vector content would be marked respectively, so would 
content from which a pixel format can be generated at any resolution (but which 
isn't vector content).

For pixel content a minimum available resolution to enter the contest should 
probably be defined.
