there are a few more criterias for a splash that haven't been
mentioned yet. The winning splash should be

 - international

     Thus it must not show any text besides "GIMP 2.2".

 - useable as a splash

     It needs to have a blank or very low-contrast area at the bottom
     that is large enough to hold the progress texts we show at
     startup. Large enough even for a slightly larger font.

It could also be beautiful, perhaps funny and it should have a
relation to GIMP.

Unfortunately not all submissions meet these criteria. There are some
very nice ones that can't be used because they violate these obvious
rules :(
