    These guidelines are pathetic, must be larger than 6mp but smaller than 2MB, yet still have a high resolution.

    Hi Guys,

    I think they need participant to resize it down to 200kb for submission but still retain the high res original in case they win so that they can make it in to poster or what they deem fit.

    "In order to win, you will be required to provide the original high-resolution file which should be taken with a 6 megapixel camera, or better, at its maximum resolution. Participants are responsible for downsizing the image for submission.

    7. Winners will be required to agree to surrender the following rights of their winning submission:

    • Publicity and marketing materials for use by Microsoft perpetually (including print, digital, and for public display), the original high resolution picture would be required;
    • Perpetual download from a Microsoft appointed website as a desktop background and/or screensaver;
    • Microsoft will have exclusive rights to the winning submissions until 31 December 2008;
    • Sale of a print reproduction;
    • Editing and resizing the winning submissions."

    TnC:

    4. Contest Theme and Categories; Participation and Eligibility.
    Any digital photograph submitted for the purposes of the Contest ("Submission") must have a landscape or scenery of a location in Singapore as its main feature, and the photograph must be taken within the Contest Period. The Contest is designated for amateur photographers only. Photographs submitted by professional photographers will be ineligible and removed from the Contest.

    So how do they define who are the "professional photographers" ?

    Just do not understand why they put as unapproved photo. They should have something like pending for approval instead. Thanks for your quick reply.

    Quality definitely will be affected, but we have to comply to their rule and regulation inorder to participate.

    Hi, I didn't see this in the rules can you link me to where you got the above from? Especially the part that says "photograph must be taken within the Contest Period". TIA.

    I like this one

    9. If the winner does not agree to the terms of the competition, the next best entry will claim the prize.

    I wonder why it was included...
