Thanks Danny, but of course we both use Wordpress and we have the same plugin you do. The problem now is that it doesn't support 8k, so we are having to look at other solutions. Most likely what we'll have to do is just put up 4k versions for now and get 8k versions out there if it becomes easier to do. As it is it's quite time consuming as each one has to be separately created in a stand-alone viewer with its own page.

Now that 4.3 is out I'll be able to put attention back on this and finish it off.

I remember this being talked about at an open conference a few years ago, and how it was a field for revenue generation. That said, it seems to be the applied approach, where anything supporting 8k is licensed based.

However, the plugin you are using is customizable... And looking through the base code, the actual viewer handles 8k, at least, there is nothing suggesting it can't so it must be the plugins version it uses or viewport limitations in development of the plugin.

Thanks Oshyan,
In time I had completely forgotten to follow this subject. Very happy to know that there has always been followers and interest.

The winning entries have, at last, been posted to Facebook:
https://www.facebook.com/pg/PlanetsideSoftware/photos/?tab=album&album_id=2034916586576876

We had hoped to find a better (higher quality, non-proprietary) solution, but for now that has proved quite challenging. So for the moment the galleries are only on Facebook. We hope to add them to our website in time. When we are able to do that we will update the main gallery posting thread here: https://planetside.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic,26157.0.html

Looks good, some very intriguing entries I didn't see before (or I must have forgotten). And the sharpness is amazing. When will the renders be sent to the respective winners? Soon, I hope! I would certainly like to show them to potential clients in my own offline viewer (some of them coming over next week already).
