Help with Picking a Key Signature

in Piano

Hey, I am currently working on arranging a song by ear and currently the flats and sharps are all over the place. I need help with picking a key signature for the piece. The chord progressions goes like this and changes about every 2 bars:
Ab minor, C minor, Ab minor, C minor
B minor, Eb minor, B minor, Eb minor
C# minor, G# minor, C# minor, G# minor
D minor, A minor 7, Bb minor 7, E minor

Then it repeats from the beginning again with the Ab minor, C minor stuff. 

It is fine if it changes key signature every once in a while as this piece seems to modulate between keys quite a bit. I can't be changing key signatures every 2 bars though. What is your opinion on key signature? 

Here is the sheet music:

Composing Playoff Contest

A composing playoff is a contest with 3 rounds (sometimes more depending on how many people enter on the first round). The first round anyone can enter their pieces in. When at least 5 people enter the contest, a few members (selected by me) will judge the top 3 winners. In the 2nd round, the top 3 will then compose another piece for the round. Then the same judges will judge the top 2. Then in the 3rd round (the final round), the last 2 winning contestants will compose yet another piece. Then the judges will judge the 1 winner of the round. The judges will vote on the reward for the winner.
