All websites stripe the color profile because it is ignored by web browsers online, hence the color changes. However, you can get rid of the "color profile" with the help of Photoshop. You should choose "File → Save for the web". The "Save for the web" in Photoshop or any editing program will read the information in the color profile and apply it to the image. After that, you may upload images without losing colors.
After you upload images you should see them in your profile until the deadline. After the deadline, they will be automatically submitted. You can also find previously submitted photos by going to your profile and clicking on ‘Awards’.
No, only the real name of a photographer is allowed. You can mention your Studio/Business name in your profile and it will be displayed during posting on the Website and Instagram.
