BBC Photographer of the year competition

Discussion in '35mm Cameras' started by John Cuthbertson, Jun 30, 2004.

  1. Hi Gang,

    Just read this on the BBC News website.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/magazine/3383611.stm

    Doesn't sound like there's a cash prize but lots of kudos. And there's
    always the ever-present "Terms and conditions" to read fully (which I
    haven't done yet).

    The terms and conditions are pretty hideous, notably this bit, which
    should put off any sensible person considering entering the
    competition:

    "Contributions to bbc.co.uk
    Where you are invited to submit any contribution to bbc.co.uk
    (including any text, photographs, graphics, video or audio) you agree,
    by submitting your contribution, to grant the BBC a perpetual,
    royalty-free, non-exclusive, sub-licenseable right and license to use,
    reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works
    from, distribute, perform, play, make available to the public, and
    exercise all copyright and publicity rights with respect to your
    contribution worldwide and/or to incorporate your contribution in
    other works in any media now known or later developed for the full
    term of any rights that may exist in your contribution, and in
    accordance with privacy restrictions set out in the BBC's Privacy
    Policy. If you do not want to grant to the BBC the rights set out
    above, please do not submit your contribution to bbc.co.uk. "


    The last sentence contains some sensible advice. Avoid.

    I agree... especially...

    BTW, they say that you retain copyright, but their terms and conditions clearly
    state they they acquire a "perpetual, sublicenable licence" to exercise all
    coryrights. How do the two make sense?

  6. There was a list on the BJP site...

    I'm entering some shots into the NPG comp, but you have to pay to enter each
    print.
