    this is by far the worst T & C for participants i've ever seen so far.

    referring to
    9. Participants will grant The Organiser exclusive rights to any photographs connected to the competition with the above-mentioned tournament.

    me no lawyer lah but i will give it a crack. what this clause means is the participants, in this case, the photographer will grant The Organiser exclusive rights to any photographs connected to the competition (refering to the marathon/photo contest) with the above-mentioned tournament (refering to the photo contest/marathon) depending on how you want to interprete the words competition and tournament.

    - so in legalese, to my knowledge and understanding, it means that if you are a PARTICIPANT (which means signed up and submitted photos) to their photo contest, you will be granting them exclusive rights. however, if you ARE NOT a participant in their photo contest, YOU own the copyright to the images that you took even though it is their event. you are not trespassing as you took the shots in a public place.

    referring to
    12. All entries submitted will be the property of The Organiser and no grants or claims will be administered should any photographs be chosen to be used for publicity purposes in print, media or any other forms.

    this clause is a standard clause and is not unique to photographic contests. you will find similarities with other types of contests as well. i don't see a concern here but it does look and sound exploitive to the non-initiated.

    will you give your hard works for other people use anywhere else?

    Based on my interpretation of the f***ed up rules - shoot but dont sign up for the pathetic price. It isnt worth it. so who's going down to shoot?

    who needs to submit to them anyway?
    who says you can't shoot for your friends in a PUBLIC open space?

    happy shooting

    btw, if you dont sign away your rights, no one can do anything to you, apart from suing for invasion of privacy (would your grateful pals do that to you?) or peering at people (what? in a public place...).

    keep the rights to your images. DON'T join this photo event if you've thought of it well through.
