It states on the entry submission page that you can only use a maximum of 6 Pantone spot colors. In the future, this thread may be of help as well. Also, woot has recently implemented these guidelines as well:
If you're using Photoshop, make certain that your halftones are at least 30 LPI for a full-size design at 300 DPI.
If you're using Illustrator, please submit your final art with gradients. We'll create the halftones on our end.
Each dot that makes up your halftone must be one solid color.
In my opinion, the best thing to do is look around through the other entries to get a feel for what is acceptable. If you notice that you're doing something completely different, it isn't that you're the only one to think of it, it's that there's a reason nobody else is.
