Check it out! Your photo could win you a free trip to SXSW or a cash prize.
Thanks, comment modified to reflect the reappearance. I stand by the original point, it is totally bogus to require exclusive rights to a photo entered in a contest. You are basically charging an entry fee of the photo itself for perpetuity. Now you are running a lottery, not a contest. Sure, there are plenty of similar scams out there, but if I thought my photo was good enough to win a contest why would I give it away to you and forfeit all income and distribution rights forever? I don't care if other "contests" do it, why are you following suit with such usurious practices? Don't be stuck on stupid, a photographer's work should be valued and respected. Just change the terms of your legal boiler plate to NON-exclusive to show some heart and fairness if your intentions are honorable.
