I'm helping a friend to announce a competition the web is http://www.ipc2008.com/ the competition is for amateur till professional. actually it held in indonesia so all picture will be shown in indonesia, maybe you guys want to join to have fun. ^^
"All photo entries become the rights of the International Photo Competition (the IPC team – bhinneka production), and can be used for publication purposes. In an event that the photos will be used for commercial purposes, the committee will contact the photographer’s first."
i'm sure it's not a scam since that is a university student project. they are graded according to how much people join the competition. they regularly make that competition in bina nusantara university in indonesia. but since i only helping a friend to advertise this. i cannot say much too hehehe. but i also join that competition for fun
ya, i dun quite sure why they put that too. maybe i'll should ask them on it. i also only a contestants there hahahaa. maybe they want to use it for some advertisement or stuff. since i also want all the picture still become the property of the photographer it self >.<
this is the last update, seems that after the competition is over than all organizer will be dismissed too, which mean they won't use our picture for further usage. but if you want to make sure just contact the organizer at the web. and after i got the news from them i'll post it here
