  And that's exactly why it should be prohibited.

  The spirit of the competition forbids using post-processing that enhances
the quality of the image generated by the renderer.

  Again: This is a rendering competition, not a computer graphics
competition. The entries should be direct results of the renderer,
not direct results of photoshop.

  You seem to miss the point.
  How many times do I have to repeat that the IRTC is not a computer
graphics competition?

  A computer graphics competition has the ideology of "hey, look at
what I can do with my computer, with whatever tools I like".
  A rendering competition has the ideology of "hey, look at what I
can do with this renderer".
  If image-enhancing post-processing is allowed, the latter ideology
gets broken. It simply becomes a generic computer graphics competition.
