hello all

a friend of mine forwarded me ClubSnap's url! I didn't know such thing existed till today.

I was wondering :think: whether anyone from ClubSnap will be taking part in FujiXerox/FujiFilm's photo competition? Apparently the theme is about colours..quite easy..

I just received an EDM to participate in the competition - seems quite easy, can upload the images online :bsmilie:

From what I saw there's some prizes to be won too!

As quoted from the Rules:
"8.1 In consideration of the organisers agreeing to accept your Entry, you hereby grant to the organisers an exclusive, irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide, sub-licensable, assignable, royalty-free right and license to use, store, display, publish, transmit, transfer, distribute, reproduce, create derivative works from or incorporate in other works in any form, media or technology now known or later developed, any photograph submitted by you, which forms part of the Entry.

8.2 The copyright of an Entry submitted by you will therefore be that of the organiser, and you shall not, at any time use the same photo without written permission from the organiser. "

Woah, once they AGREEING to ACCEPT your entries, its fully their's photograph. Next time I wanna use MY OWN photograph for exhibition also need to get THEIR written agreement.

If it is only the winners have to surrender the rights, then more ok as they are giving you something. Now, once they accept your submission, that's it. Done.

Another cheap way of getting photos.

Also, they have promotion for their new printers, and also getting royalties from Guinness World of Records for maintaining the record in years to come if no one overtakes it.

Wow.... Think properly 1st before you enter the competition with your photos.

Look at it in another way, by organising this competition, they will be able to get a free database of mostly solid photos for their use. For free. Very clever.

Wah...I can't believe that a big company like FujiXeros/Fujifilm does not show any respect to photographers's intellectual property rights. With the garmen strong promotion of the local art scenes one would think things would be better...well, I guess not.

The copyright will still belong to you the photographer, but you cannot use it without asking permission first.
While the org has the right to use it in any way currunt or future, without the need to ask you the copyright owner for permission, they just need to give you credit.

It is still the same as commissioning your work. Normally that is for paid assignment. But now, upon accepting the entries (without winning anything yet, I take the prizes as your momentary exchange equivalent), you would equal selling your pics le.

The pics are yours, but you must have permission to use.
