The problem with photography competition websites, T&Cs & rights grabs

Have you ever read the Terms & Conditions for a photographic competition, or a photography sharing site? Probably not, no one wants to spend an hour sifting through the fine print that has been carefully tucked away behind the sofa. You are probably more distracted by the thought of entering a competition and winning the prize. Or that your photos will receive more exposure by entering; everyone wants exposure online in this day and age, selling their souls to get it. A clever tactic used to distract you from the real reason, a rights grab and free advertising material.

What you aren’t told, unless you carefully read the legions
