Hi. I'm a British writer. Should I stick with British spellings e.g. metre, colour, or would the judges prefer the American versions?

I'm Irish. I use the spellings I've always used. As far as I know the judges are asked to look out for this variance between English/American English usage. I remember seeing a post like this a liitle while ago. The response was something along the lines of this.
