Well that is what is so damnable about it, isn't it. You have to operate 
on two levels of detail. I can even imagine there could be a texture 
situation in which the effectiveness on each level called for 
exclusively different solutions.  But I think the idea here is that 
*really* you are producing a picture at the high resolution level, it's 
just that you don't have to actually submit the high res render, just a 
low res render with some details.  Obviously many considerations will go 
into the judging.  Logically the amount of detail, in the details, would 
act as a minimum requirement.  ie,  "Great concept, but we can't publish 
this as poster because the image breaks down at poster resolutions. 
So..."  But as a practical matter, it's a competition, you are being 
judged relative to a group.
