Yes, but I believe they mean that change is the reason for the story.
You might send an already-written story, but I bet those who latch on to Change will pull ahead.
A werewolf story might do well here.
Or a sex change.
Moving to another planet.
Going from a farm to a city.
My guess is these things happen as a matter of course, not after an inciting incident.
For example, Luke going to Degobah isn't change, that's plot.
But him changing from farmboy to Jedi - that's the Change I imagine this contest is calling for.
Unless Luke says, "I'm tired of sand, sand, sand. I want to live in a swamp!"

An external or physical change.
Granted, I'm guessing, but I didn't read it as a character who has changed by story's end, but a character who faces and deals with a change in the beginning. More than an inciting incident, or call to action, but a change. Something broken.
When I was 23 my house burned down.
