Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
Sounds like a scam to me.
I googled it and found these

It'll probably be similar to "Circle of Photographers" or www.picture.com
Surprise surprise if you scroll to the bottom of the third link you find a web address - https://www.picture.com/convention/absenteeorder.asp?VIP=1661857&fn=Michael&ln=Litvak&SC=DC4C

Both tell you you've been awarded some title and try to get you to buy a book before they print it. I was a semi finalist in the picture.com site then received a letter saying i was to be published in a book and what an honour it would be. A large hardback book with my picture in it. I could hardly contain myself (yawn) I had only submitted a 160kb thumbnail so I knew they were just a bunch of cowboys - at the size i submitted my image would have been about the size of a stamp!!!
It turns out it was a book of thumbnails - i found that out via various forums including this one (i think)

What kind of international society doesn't have it's own website???

It's a scam - hope you haven't parted with your money yet!!

PS I was typing that while googling in another window so that's why it sounds a bit odd in parts!!!
