    Photo Contests?

    Is anyone entering any lately? I am seeing a ton of them around. Outdoor Photographer always seems to have one listed. Would love to have people start threads with all the information of open photo contests and all the details so that members have an easier time entering the contests.

    I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the warning labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

    A lot of these so called "contests" charge a fee to enter. Not my idea of a contest. These places want your pictures for free! Think about that for a moment.
    Also, a lot of these contests are for U.S citizens only.....not world wide. That limits the entrants, doesn't it!

    Just be careful when entering anything that seems too good to be true, or uses slick language to get you to submit your photos. These companies make thousands of dollars on YOUR work...and you win what...a $100? A new camera or lens? Really?

    Just to add to what Jack said, READ THE FINE PRINT. National Geographic is the worst for taking your image rights. When you submit, you literally give them your photograph for life... you get a credit line. If the copyright issue isn't clear, or if they say they can take your photo and use it forever, DON'T ENTER. If it just a copyright grab.

    To answer your question, NO, I don't enter ANY. Once I read the fine print, I shy away from most.

    These are copyright grabs. They can sell these, use them as stock photos, etc. What do you get??

    Are there any contests that offer prizes that do not grab copyrights? Also just posting your pictures on some sites could give up all rights. The fine print is a fickle mistress and sometimes there is so much legal speak it's hard to say where it's safe to post anything you want to retain rights to.

    I am not aware of any off the top of my head. You have to READ THE FINE PRINT on any contest you come across first before willy-nilly giving/sending them your image. Best I can tell you, I don't enter contests as a rule as 98% of the ones I have seen are all the same, a copyright grab.

    National Geographic, believe it or not, is one of the worst for grabbing your images! You would never know it unless you read the fine print!
