Need Some Advice

I have a photo I want to enter into a contest. It is the only one in my library I feel is best one that adheres to the contest theme. The trouble is that it says in the contest that “if accepted for publication, an image file size of at least 6MB will be required.” The problem is that the original file is 2700 × 1796 and is only 581KB. After upsizing it as much as possible through a digital photo program, I can only get it up to 8100 × 5300 at at 2.4MB before I start getting pixelation problems. I am contemplating is printing it out and then scanning it in a really high resolution, but not sure that will do any good. Thought I would open the floor to other suggestions.
