Zooming during the exposure(s)

Changing the focal length of a lens [“zooming”] during the exposure(s) always renders the resulting image TCQ-ineligible.

That’s because zooming the lens during the exposure results in the presence of blur that was not the result of the camera and subject moving in relation to each other: that photo could not meet Q7 no matter how it was processed or explained.

Note that a photograph is NOT disqualified from TCQ for depicting actual motion blur that is caused by the camera and subject moving in relation to each other during the exposure (subject to the motarri principle, as per Q5 and Q7).
