    @nerwin I read that to mean if you get hurt trying to take a shot for this contest they aren't liable. IE: You stand in front of a tornado trying to get a last second shot, and get transported to the Land Of Oz, don't look to them for a return ticket. :anonymous:

    I hate it when they word things in such a way that it's confusing to understand. I guess I'm just not smart :icon_cry:

    It's a shame that just because the sponsors have deep pockets, people would think that they should pay because they (contest participate) acted stupid.

    It's this type of crap I don't like in contests:

    Basically, they can do what they want with your photo for 5 years and not compensate you at all.


    By their own wording, that would only apply if you receive a prize. If you don't, sue the bajeezuz out of 'em.

    I mean $15,000 would be nice, don't get me wrong! But not sure if it's worth the hassle to bother with their shenanigans.

    Seriously???? You guys must be way better than I. I'd gladly give them one of mine for a "lifetime" of use for $15k. I could have a nice shopping trip for equipment with $15k.

    I would note that in the TC you also agree that they have a 1 year royalty and not limited use of your photo even if you don't win. Which to me simply says that they require it for basic promotion of the competition (and thereafter next year there'll be a new competition and thus no need to keep your photos around).
