Evidently, uploaders did not read the terms and conditions.
Most images did not comply to this condition:
Another thing: why DBS did not at least put the basic T&C on Flickr.Participant must upload a photo of himself/herself, a friend or
family member only. Photo must be a minimum of 1MB in size.
So, how many will qualify ?
This is a contest and not a job. It will not KILL the livelihood of the pros. The objective is to capture the moment of emotion and being professional is secondary. 1MB is about 2-3 megapixel, which is just good for an old phone camera. The reason, I suppose, is for it to be printable and posted on webpages. And frankly, I have to agree with DBS to keep the prize low so that professionals will stay away and let amateurs and camwhores win once in a while. I'll probably submit a photo of my neice, and if she gets picked then she will get her 15min of fame and have a new $50 toy. For those who keeps thinking about the prize, it just kills the fun out of the contest. THIS WILL NOT REPLACE basic professional advertisements.
