Bash, there is more to skinning than just bootskins. You should try and learn to skin other applications that way you can participate on these type of contest. CursorXP is a nice and very easy application to skin. You should give it a try.

Ohh. i hope my work would be finished in time.

Hey Bash, you could venture into LogonStudio skinning. It's a little more advance that bootskinning. although not as complicated as WB or DX or IP but you could start venturing into it. I would be happy to assist you.
