    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...
    It's for those who don't read small prints.

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

    1. professionals: those using Windows XP Professional Edition
    2. amateurs: those using Windows XP Home Edition

    You need to login. The condition, IIRC, is somewhere in the upload page. Hard to notice because the they are hyperlinked.

    As per John's reply... if you casually browse around, you will nto be able to see the whole T&C.

    need to register before you are allowed to upload photos... it's where the REAL T&Cs are hyperlinked...

    No wonder got clause 9.

    Now that stinks. So if I take a photo with my 4 MP camera from an age gone by, then it's not acceptable?

    Geez...

    The word 'ineligible' in their T&Cs probably doesn't even exist.

    Again this is a competition I would like to join. But they only want a 6 megapixel image or larger. *shrugs* I should buy one of those 10 megapixel interpolated cameras for this competition. Woohoo!

    Most sites use tracking cookies nowadays. Also I'm tinking it's a blanket T&C to cover all the services offered by them...inclusive live updates/WGA...etc
