You can’t submit a pic below 2000 x 2000 resolution. So use a proper camera. A 3 Mega Pixel camera has 2,048 (horizontal) x 1,536 (vertical) pixels. Even that wouldn’t serve you for this contest.

To give you an idea of 2000 x 2000 resolution, here are four pics I wanted to enter in the contest of my basketball court. Even when clubbed together, they don’t come up to 2000 x 2000. Its only 884 x 1088 pixels.
