Contest requirements confusion: pixels vs. DPI

Hi everyone!

I'd soon like to enter my first photo contest, but their requirements confuse me a bit:

They want a JPEG image, one side of which needs to be at least 4500 pixels, and its DPI needs to be 300. The winners' photos will be displayed either on a screen or printed at 50 cm x 75 cm or 100 cm x 150 cm.

I know it's possible to change a photo's DPI value without changing its size in pixels.

So, is that really all they want? A garden-variety 72 DPI, (for example) 6240x4160 pixel photo whose DPI has been changed to 300? Ô_o

Thank you!
