  1. Walter Hawn says:

    Sorry, cannot enter a contest that insists on this provision:
    “Photograph entries constitute permission to use the images with credit to the photographer without monetary compensation.”

    Such a provision constitutes a far-too-broad taking of rights.

    a far better usage agreement would include language that specifies that entrants extend a limited time license for use in conjunction with the contest and that winners extend a broader license for other, specified uses.

    Regards,
    Walter Hawn

    Any limit on how many photos per email

  3. Ron Salyer says:

    I tend to agree with Mr. Hawn about the broadness of the permission agreement. Has there been an updated limit on the permissions? Also, If I participate, is there a limit on entries?

    • Hi Ron,

      With Mr. Hawn’s help, I reworked the permission agreement and I’ve republished it here under the “Intellectual property” heading. If you “refresh” the page, the new version should show up for you.
