That will be only for the winners of the prizes right?

long time already is like that.

I wonder just how many will submit

buddhists praying.
buddhist monks conducting rituals.
buddhist festivals.

just a question though....supposing the person/people in the picture ask for remuneration from the organizer/photographer if their faces are in the winning entries. GG?

Some additions to the T&Cs:


5. Each photographer may submit up to 5 images, which can be in colour or monochrome.
a. Photographers found to submit more than 5 images under different aliases will be banned from the contest.

14. Employees of SBF and members of the Working Committee may not participate in the contest.

---
Hi everyone, we regret to say that we have received 70+ photos from the same person using more than ten aliases and are hence forced to add this rule in order to make the contest fair to other photographers.

Rest assured, said person has already been banned from the contest.

Thanks for your support!
