    its abit like everyone post photo in flickr, then someone took it and use it for commercial purpose...
    Is it, sorry my bad englash? I tot thay haded spelt it out and those participated had had accept its

    You might say that he is stupid to be abused. But, personally, I think otherwise, unless he is a comercial photographer or he is Jeff Hutchens' mentor.

    So why do they need to put up such an unfair clause. This will only tarnish their image and reputation.

    BTW, seems that it is a standard drafted by NGC (See their SIA competition which also has a similar clause).
    Sorry, if I come across as against you, which I'm not.

    I beleive that this terms are drafted by their legal department. Maybe, the legal department just copy wholesale from somewhere else. I don't think the top management will have a clue about all these.

    I will try to look at it more positively.

    If they credit you properly every time your photo get printed....you will gain recognition. Something good to put in the cv or namecard... "Winner of Nat Geo Photo Contest"..

    Better still.... If the photo you have submitted is so good.... for all eternity... people (maybe even alien) will get to see your photo....

    Hi there. We can see that the contest has raised many thoughtful questions. Please know that Nat Geo and CapitaLand are not seeking to profit from anyone, nor use anyone's creativity for sale. We simply must flag to everyone interested in the contest that we would need the rights for the entries - it's a standard clause we share with everyone. We understand if this is not comfortable for a photographer, and respect anyone’s decision not to enter.

    but will they put his name with the photo published?

    also, if the contestant uses the photo/s that they had submitted for this contest for other commercial use, will the org ask the contestant for money? saw this was a problem for a fellow cser who posted (not the TS for that thread btw) in the recent thread about newspaper using his photo without his approval. see post #20 of this thread.

    My picture is on newspaper.

    commercial photography: charge accordingly; charity photography: do it with a big heart;
    competition photography: read the term & condition, personal photography: to collect dust,
    public photography (print, web, other media): personal ego booster,
    each has its specify purposes. I don't mix them.

    You can go to http://www.capitaland.com/ngc-photo/ & see if your photo is there for voting, if not, i guess your photo is only selected to be displayed at ION art gallery from 5th to 9th August 2010.

    It's a shame that even Nat Geo is using this sort of T&C for their competitions. Having fun or whatever is one thing, but to say that the organisers can use the images "without compensation, in perpetuity, in any country of the world, in any manner and in any media or format now know or later devised, for any purpose whatsoever...." is an abuse. And yes of course you can say you respect people's decision not enter because there will always be suckers who will.

    I think in many international competitions, the copyrights belong to the photographers and they are credited accordingly. And even if the images are published in any media, it will be publicity and events related to the competition. To say "in perpetuity... and in any media..." means giving the organisers free reins to do anything with the images, meaning free usages for publicity forever. And to say that it's not profiting is an insult. It is considered profiting, although not in monetary sense, because the images, wherever it's published, is a form of publicity.

    I can understand CapitaLand, because they are 'CapitaLand", but to see it coming from Nat Geo, it's a disgrace.

    Shame on you.
