Aha~ At the very first sight of your thread, I thought it was some problems dealing with TIFF-processing, and I would have suggested you google some image-toolkits to help you with the related work. Now I realize that you are calling for submissions of the image art work. I will do what I can to help you call for submissions because that I think it is a meaningful activity. I hope you success. Good luck.

Best regards,
