    What does one mean 'SOLE PROPERTY'?

    Means the photographer has to surrender all rights to the Organizer?

    Or does that mean otherwise??

    Default Re: Digital Photo Competition

    Competition such as this or most competition in fact always have rules that are contradictory.

    The title/theme says Digital Photo Competition but

    Rule 9 says

    "Do not submit original prints or negatives. The Organiser is not responsible for damage or loss of entry, during or after the competition. Proof of delivery will not be accepted as proof of submission."


    Then in red the organiser specified Note: No prints, slides or negatives will be accepted." ... meaning what?

    Does this mean only pictures produced from a digital camera are accepted ??? If so, why Rule No 9 ???

    or

    does this mean any picture, digital or film, is accepted except no prints/slides/negatives as the Organiser is not responsible for damage or loss of entry, during or after the competition ??? If so, why titled "Digital Photo Competition" ???

    or

    are the rules conveniently pasted without giving any/much thought to what they cut ???

    Let me hazard a guess...they will not accept/consider submissions of prints or negs for the competition. But they also cannot stop people from sending print/neg submissions through post. Hence they will not be responsible for loss or damage to such entries, should they receive any.
