Create an image depicting a real country on Earth, that you haven't been to before. This could be an ideal travel spot, a place you're interested in or maybe just a completely random location.

It can be in the form of a postcard, but it doesn't have to be. It can just be a regular image depicting a real location from that country.

Obviously we're not going to check your passports, so we can only hope for your co-operation and honesty :o

Also, don't forget to mention your chosen country somewhere in your submission.

Canvas size - Exactly 200 (width) x 150 (height).
Colours - Max 25.
Transparency - No.
Animation - No.
