    Default Check this out - photo contest rules

    From the photo contest attached to the Montreal Jazz fest: https://mypagetabs.com/media/uploads...Jazz_Rules.pdf

    9.6. By entering the Contest, each entrant grants the Contest Organizer the right to edit, adapt, publish, use, reproduce, and distribute his photo worldwide and in perpetuity, without compensation of any kind and for all forms of media, including but not limited to newspapers, books, websites (including social media), and television channels.

    and they make it EXCLUSIVE with another clause -

    9.3. By participating in the Contest, each entrant who submits a photo affirms, represents, and warrants that his photo:
    a. has not been submitted in any other contest;
    b. has not been submitted elsewhere for publication;
    c. has not been published, rendered public, or been the subject of advertising;
    d. has not won any prizes.

    So they get your stuff even if you win nothing. A few other companies do that as well.

    It's actually more common than you would think. They are not so much running a contest as they are gathering potential promotional material for a very low cost.

    Nice one, AT. The big problem is, they generally don't even give you credit when they use your image so I'm not sure how beneficial it would be to win.

    Nice MA.

    Iggy - u are 100% right.

    They give away a 3000. camera (that they probably did not pay for) and save tens of thousands on publicity.

    Only amateurs will enter a contest like this (or pros that hate reading).

    Sounds like the Rules from the photo contest for the United Way at my work last year (which I entered and won). They used the ruse of money for the United way as a ruse for as Iggy said "potential promotional material". I thought that I would enter a picture that would really fit the theme but wasn't one of my real keepers. However the more I look at that picture the more I like it and realize it was better that I originally thought. Now I pissed because I can't do anything with it because I signed over the rights.

    They just posted that they are running the contest again this year. Not sure if I will enter. If I do I will make sure it is a crappier picture that I don't care about.
