A note from the Organizers: It’s unfortunate that we have to use that kind of language to protect our fun little contest. While we will absolutely never sell any submitted photos, we would however like to display them on the Organizer’s website/social media accounts or use them for promotion of the contest, and for that we need to be legally clear. We understand that this language might make you uncomfortable, so we recommend that you do not share any photos that cannot be made public or any high resolution photos that you are planning to sell elsewhere, especially with exclusive rights.
