i got an idea: reward the best collection of images, where we define 
collection as a group of at least 5 images with the same theme/style, 
where we put accent on the overall quality not the dimension of the 
requiring collections, this will increase the number of submissions, but 
the low limit imposed coupled with the criteria based on quality may 
avoid receiving large amount of poor images.

example of such collections already existing in our repository:
- the drawings from Linda Kim (sorry, no direct link)
- my fruits - http://clipart.nicubunu.ro/?gallery=fruits

also i think we should have the jury nominalized before the contest start
