Re: Contest requirements confusion: pixels vs. DPI

This is a common sort of specification for online submissions.  As mentioned above it is meaningless and whenever I see something like it, I just shake my head at what is often self perpetuating nonsense.  The only true specification is based on pixels.  Usually this is done to limit the number of pixels on the longest side.  Resolution is determined and adjusted by the device used to view or project the images.
