    What's the definition of "selected entries"? The winning entries only? Or as many as NLB deem fit? Throwing out $2000 odd for a pool of photographs to decorate a gleaming new library seems like a very good bargain.....

    This copyright thing is overblown. If you held a competition, would you not want to display the winning entries or selected entries? Does it make sense to you that the organiser cannot display the winning entries or selected entries unless they pay each photog, even if a prize has already been awarded to them?
