Well, given that POV-Ray does not write JPEG files, how else could you
possibly get a JPEG file of a POV-Ray render?

Then this line
"No post processing of any kind is permitted."
in Rule 4.Image D should be changed to advoid any confusion.

No, there is no need to change any rules. Some basic intelligence is
required of the competition participants:

The sample images are JPEG and obviously JPEG images were always allowed.
Anybody unable to understand that compressing an image is *not* post
processing in the sense of the rules should probably not be taking part -
you might consider it natural selection :-)

And remember, the same kind of post processing rules have worked for the
IRTC well for many years. Nobody even had a problem there either.  I would
strongly advice to maybe use some common sense and not the lawyer mode of
thinking.  It is much more productive to work on your images in the end!

this is why I used the +FN command line switch .... so that povray could 
produce a file that would require no post processing whatsoever. I was 
previously converting bmp file to jpg. Hmmm .... how can ya follow the rules 
when it appears that the rules are a moving target. No doubt I'll get flamed 
for this and tomorrow I'll regret doing it but .... hey is this anyway to 
run a contest???? Considering dropping out ..... sheesh

	Consider this - competition rules are like the software you're
gonna use to participate: they improve with time and feedback.

PS: it would be a pity to discourage potential participants at that
stage of the competition.
