The competition system advisesPlease ensure your JPEG image uses the sRGB colour space as all metadata will be stripped from entries
If (for example) you use the Adobe RGB Colour Space (which has a larger gamut; i.e. range of colours that can be displayed) and you upload that image into the competition system the following happens...
- You see the image on your system in accurate colour as the image tells the browser that it is aRGB
- The competition system strips the EXIF data which includes the colour space information
- When the image displays from the competition system the browser now defaults to sRGB as it does not know what else to do - the image now looks different - usually less vibrant
So always publish using sRGB for the competition system
