considering that only winning entries become propertie of LTA, I don't see whats wrong.

Its like taking a photo for a client, and selling it to him (giving up all intellectual rights to the photo)

If someone approached u, told you that he wanted to buy off the rights to a photo you took for $2500, would you sell ? as a hobbyist, I'm pretty sure i would. It would take me 20% closer to a 1DsMkII .... :heart:

They mention winning entries.. din say only the winners's photos.. so if you photos go into qualifying rounds, also can call winning entries... so photos belong to them to use and you might not win anything...

Seems more like a cheap way to get photos they want w/o paying for professional photographers... :thumbsd: :thumbsd: :thumbsd:

hmm... i dun think lta needs to stinge on budget like this, they collected tons of $$$ annually from coe road tax arf parf erp pie ecp aye etc... :bsmilie:

qualifying = winning entry? i doubt it, but those interested in contest should clarify with the organiser.

if win prize = sell off rights to photo, some would say ok, some would object for the sake of artistic pride, got all kinds lah...

btw, i'm not related to lta in any way, just saw it on their website and thought i'll share info. :)

typically winning entries means uhhh... photos that win prizes. So if you win a small consolation prize, the photo still belongs to them.

It's unfair but then they set the rule so if you think it's not fair, dun join. Simple.

It's a way to get commercial shots done at cheap price.

With the same amount of $$$, they get so many more pictures to choose from.

Then again, it's up to the individual if they want to join ;)
