    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    all winners must submit their nonreturnable
    negatives or transparencies, or original highresolution
    digital image files (minimum 2000x1600 pixels) of
    their winning entries to Great Eastern for publicity purposes.

    erm... so what if it is "supported" by the PSS?

    IMO, all the more the PSS should advise on the photographer's rights. Otherwise, PSS is only a name they can use as a heavy-weight to make the contest seem more professional.

    Well first thing first, the rules said that the 8R sized photos go in first then if you win then you send in your originals so if there is any descrepency, the winners are the ultimate losers...

    Guys, I've never taken part in any of these competitions before, so I don't really follow/understand the issues with those rules, on 'do whatever they want with the entries', 'send negatives', etc, not to mention the rights of the photographer.

    Would anyone enlighten me please?

    This means you lose all rights to use the photography commercially under your name. In the event if someone wants to buy your shot, you won't be able to sell because this photo, legally speaking, does not belong to you anymore. They will have to approach GEL to buy it.

    Also, it also means that GEL is able to use or sell your photograph without paying you. Neither you can demand a fee for it because by taking part in the competition, you are bounded by a contract to grant them all copyright to the photo according to the rules and conditions stated in the entry form.

    Technically speaking, it means that GEL hired you on an assignment. For free or not, it depends whether you win any price or not.

    Hmm, can't we look at it as they buy our photo for 10000 bucks if we win??
    1 negative? hell, I'll give them 5 rolls if they buy my pics for 10000 bucks
