    The pics are yours, but you must have permission to use.

    Wahh... all less than $600...
    Not worth it to give them the rights of my photos.

    Actually all photo competitions have the same T&C as they have regarding rights.
    But if the prize is more than $2k... then i may find it worth it.
    So i guess I'll give this one a pass...

    There are currently 10 photography competitions going on that I know of.
    I've reviewed the t&c for 9 of them. All 9 of them have the same clause abt exclusive rights, blah blah..... basically they mean the same thing. Just slightly different phrasing. As for the 10th, I have yet to review the t&c but not surprised if its the same.

    So, so far, I haven't come across a photography competition without this kind of t&c.
    Unreasonable? Well, its across the board so don't just slam Fuji Xerox.
    Check it out for yourself if you're not convinced and let me know if you ever come across a photography competition that doesn't want the exclusive rights to your photo.

    What's so unbelievable about that?? Even the government is guilty as charged.

    Everyone is doing it doesn't mean they have to follow. Its just another cheap attempt to source for photographs.

    That's why photographers here don't excel cos too many of such rules that don't protect photographers at all. What a shame! I felt shameful for the organisers too.

    more reasonable T&C is the rights of winning entries
    not all entries

    also rights to use for publicity of the event is different from
    total usage rights, even to sub license as in this case.

    look at it carefully, the org can sub license your submitted image without your knowledge, just as long as they give you credit. while you cannot do anything with your image although you still own copyright.

    Some examples of more reasonable T&C

    The Nikon Photo Contest International
    Rights of entrant

    Entrants retain all copyrights and other equivalent rights to entered photographs, however the organizer will possess rights as stated below in “Rights of the organizer.”


    Rights of the organizer

    The organizer reserves the permanent nonexclusive right to publish, reproduce, display, distribute, and show on screen any winning photograph on Web sites, photo exhibitions, tradeshows, or any other media which is under the management of the organizer for the purpose of promoting the contest. In all cases where such photographs are used, the organizer reserves the right to do so without obtaining the further prior permission of the winner and without offering any further compensation in any form.
    The organizer reserves the permanent nonexclusive right to give permission to its subsidiaries and affiliates to publish, reproduce, display, distribute, and show on screen any winning photograph on Web sites, photo exhibitions, tradeshows, or any other media which is under the management of the subsidiaries and affiliates of the organizer for the purpose of promoting the contest. In all cases where such photographs are used, the organizer reserves the right to do so without obtaining the further prior permission of the winner and without offering any further compensation in any form.
    With regard to the preceding clause, the organizer, its subsidiaries and affiliates reserve the right to (a) display some or all parts of winning works accompanied by additional effects, such as computer graphics, sound effects or music on Web sites managed by the organizer, its subsidiaries and affiliates and (b) to reproduce some or all parts of the winning works for the purposes of producing announcement posters, tickets, brochures, etc. for photo exhibitions and other events. Winners may not exercise any copyright or personal rights to the photographs used.
    A separate agreement will need to be reached should the organizer, its subsidiaries or affiliates wish to publish a submitted photograph for purposes other than the promotion of the contest.
    The organizer, its subsidiaries and affiliates will announce names of winners and titles of winning works on the Nikon Photo Contest International Web site, other Web sites related to the contest and at exhibitions and other related places. Entrants are encouraged to refer to “Use of Personal Information” in this pamphlet.
    In the event that an entry is found to contravene the entry requirements stated by the organizer, that entry will be disqualified. Entrants will, however, not be notified of such a judgment. The organizer reserves the right to revoke winner status and revoke any awarded prize in the event that an entrant is found to be unsuitable after the prize is awarded.
    All terms and conditions regarding entry to the contest are applied according to Japanese legal requirements. In the event that entries are made from outside Japan, such entries will be handled subject to Japanese law.
    It is not the responsibility of the organizer to ensure that the contest entry requirements and use of personal information do not contravene the laws and regulations of the country from which the entry is being submitted. For the aforementioned reason, all responsibilities relating to the submission of entries to the contest will be borne by the entrant who, it is understood, has submitted such entries under their own responsibility and at their own risk. In the event that any misfortune or damage should be experienced on the side of the entrant, the organizer will not be responsible. Such damages will therefore be the sole responsibility of the entrant.
    Should any conflict arise between an entrant and the organizer, the case will fall under the exclusive jurisdiction of the Tokyo District Court and will be handled and settled accordingly.

    Racing Action Photo Competition
    7. The Organisers shall have the right of exhibit, editing of title entry and use of winning entries for any publicity and marketing purposes. The images shall
    remain as a property of the Organisers.
    8. The winners can still own these images for their own portfolio, but not for any other commercial usage.

    4. Entries must be submitted with original colour negatives/transparencies/softcopy in CD. Prize winning entries will become the property of the organisers. The organisers reserve the right to use them for any purpose without payment of any fee.

    Yes, read it carefully. The Xerox's competition's T&C is really very very different and unfair.
