National Fine Arts 2011 - need help picking my entry

Fine Arts Festival is a discipleship tool of national youth ministries designed to "help students discover, develop and deploy their ministry gifts." Beginning in September each year, over 70,000 junior and senior high school students begin preparing their entries for the District and National Fine Arts Festivals. Students may enter as many as 58 categories offered in 8 main divisions: Art, Communication, Dance, Drama, Exhibition, Instrumental, Vocal, and Writing. (http://faf.ag.org/)

Before this year, I’ve never entered to compete. It was only recently that my friends said my pictures were really good and that I should enter. Sadly, the cut off age is 24 in the Kappa Tau college age division. This is my first and last year to compete.
Happy to say, I won the Kappa Tau Traditional Photography category at the District Fine Arts in Florida. I was invited to compete at Nationals, which this year is in Phoenix, AZ. Problem is I don’t know what photo to submit.
The theme this year is “Compelled by Love”
According to the rulebook, the photo doesn’t have to follow the theme or be in any way religious but it must reflect a Christian world.
I’m entering into three categories: Digital Photography, Traditional Photography, and Visual Arts 2D. Each photo has the category they will be entered in.
So far, my friends like my “sunrise at the pier” photo with my fisheye camera.
But I can’t decide between the “getting lost in worship” and the “vietnam wall” for my Digital category.
For visual arts, I might use the Polaroid pano.
