Landscape Contests

In browsing a few past landscape contests sponsored throughout the world,  I noticed that the winning photographs have something in common:  they seem exaggerated - ie. over processed: colors, saturation...I find this takes away from any realism.

I don't claim to have any expertise in such genre by far, or how contest winners are chosen, but from what I'm gathering, it almost seems to be who can post process an image the best and bend the reality of how the photo originally looked like.  Hoping maybe someone can help me understand this.
