    Hi I have a general question:

    I have read a lot of information on when you need a model
    release form and when its not necessary... except it seems
    that it is never crystal clear. Is there a general rule of when
    you definetly need one?

    My situation is this:

    I am a recent college graduate and want to enter a mosaic
    project that I made as an undergrad to a photo magazine contest.
    The original intent of the project was to be shown in a public setting
    in the University's gallery. Here is the link to the images:

    Can I submit the mosaic to the magazine contest without approval?

    thanks! that article was helpful. i guess that will teach me to get the release beforehand... it is always a pain to back track.
