    10. NLB deserves the right to use and/or reproduce all photographs in printed and/or electronic form, without payment of any fee.

    As usual, another cheap attempt to get photos for their own promotional purposes.....

    Thanks for highlighting... again and again.

    In this case, however, I think you have overlooked that NLB serves the people freely-- all the books you borrow, all the facilities you use cost a lot-- and they are organising this presumably as part of a National Day programme.

    While I don't particularly care for National Day, I do know a lot of people here go wild over it, they queue up for hours for tickets, spend money to wish Singapore "happy birthday" etc. Hence this NLB exercise is no more than asking photographers in Singapore to make a voluntary contribution towards National Day. For those who care about National Day, I think that's not too much to ask for.

    Rest assured NLB has enough money to hire photographers for their own work, eg annual reports, brochures, etc. It doesn't need this set of photographs for any kind of promotional purposes-- esp. as people aren't going to be shooting the library, given the theme.

    Ok enough of it. You may have your assumptions and others may not subscribe to it. But that does not mean that you kept spamming this thread with your red bold statement. Let this be a warning.

    As usual, prejudices and misguided assumptions made without thinking.

    Nobody is forced into participating. The rules are made upfront and it is up to you to decide if you want to participate. If you feel the rules are unfair and violate your rights, then simply don't participate. NLB is a public agency and the pictures will likely be used for a social purpose. It's time to grow up.

    its v evident lately anyway..no point harping on it since they didn't force us to join, we can read the rules and decide for ourselves.

    why not print screen their T&C and submit as a photo..lol

    Is this your deduction or you are quoting some official source?

    Enough of this, about the terms of condition and copyrights. No body is forcing another to join.

    This forum served to announce and publicise this competition. Take your assumptions and argument elsewhere.
