Default Sending cold kegged-bottles beer to competition?

Going to send a few bottles in to a competition soon. I only keg and bottle of off them when need be. Since my beer is already cold, does anyone worry about your beer warming up in transit and skunking a little?

That's a very common misconception about skunking. Skunking happens when light hits beer. Warming and cooling cycles are not ideal but shouldn't pose a problem.
