Multiple Submissions
I would like to submit two or three different designs; can I do this?

Yes, you can submit multiple entries, but each design should be entered as its own entry.

Submitting Images
What exactly are the limits to "digital images submitted on line." Can these be anything that can be submitted digitally (scan of a sketch or photo)? Or must they have been created digitally (i.e. image capture from a digital camera)?

To clarify, the digital images must be uploaded as a JPG and less than 1mb in size - so YES, it can be a scan of a sketch, a photo of a mockup, or an image that has been created digitally.
