    If you're an amateur photographer, living in Wiltshire, and would like
    to see one of your shots published... than we want to hear from you.

    We're on the hunt for some of the best shots of Wiltshire... for 'A
    Year in Wiltshire' calendar for 2007!

    The image can be of anything that sums up your idea of a year in
    Wiltshire... so dig around in your shoe box of snaps, or get out and
    about, and send in your favourite shots to us:

    You forgot to mention how much you are paying for each image used.

    Just the glory, don't you know. That's why it's for amateurs only.

    This is how it works:

    The BBC pays you sweet F.A., and then assumes all rights to the image.
    Your image may be used any number of times by the BBC or by any person
    or organisation with the permission of the BBC. The BBC can even sell
    the rights to your images. You indemnify the BBC against any and all
    claims arising from the use of your images, and you get no protection
    whatsoever against such claims.

    One thing is certain. You will not get a single penny for your images,
    no matter how many times they are used, or by whom, or for what
    purpose.

    Any sensible person will of course steer clear of ever offering their
    images to the BBC.

    Quote from
    "Copyright remains with the photographer but by entering the competition the
    entrant agrees to give permission to the BBC to reproduce and publish the
    image on BBC websites.
    If successful, the entrant agrees to provide the BBC with the original file
    for the image and agrees that the image can be reproduced in a printed
    calendar (and related printed promotional material) and be displayed in a
    public exhibition"

    "all rights"? Nothing in the above gives "all rights away"
    "any person or organisation"?, surely usage by the BBC is limited to that in
    the above description
    "sell the rights"? Which bit of "copyright remains with the photographer"
    implies they can sell the rights?

    It would appear that the BBC have changed their rules. It's good to
    know that those of us who complained to the BBC about the unfairness
    of the rules appear to have achieved something.
