Well technically the contest doesn't specifiy the length so I guess they are leaving it up to Cryptic to decide for themselves. But the ones I have seen that did have measurements were either too small (actually saw one for 500m long) or too big (like that 4km long super-duper-carrier).

I personally decided long before this contest officially began that my own design would be 1000m long, since the future Enterprises are significiantly larger and eventually gets up to the Enterprize J's 3200m length.
