Why using the DNG format might not be a good idea

A few years back I converted my photos from the proprietary Nikon NEF format to Adobes open DNG format, because I’m convinced of the open source idea and hate proprietary formats. But now that I started to enter photo contests, I have a problem. I can’t use any of these photos, since all contests want you to hand in the original RAW file, and DNG only counts as original if you camera directly writes them.
