The judging panel includes AP's editor, which is why I bothered to read the whole article, and immediately became wary because of the claimed 'up to' value of the prize (presumably a 'sleeps 10' cottage in Cornwall, or similar, in August) and because it is 'subject to availability' (so the best places and weeks will probably already be booked). https://www.amateurphotographer.co....one-of-five-fantastic-uk-summer-breaks-150754 I read the terms and conditions and found this near the end of the list (item 19 of 21), so I shall not be rushing to compete. Ideally there would be an alternative prize of no holiday cottage, but payment at the going rate for 'worldwide license to use your photograph(s) in perpetuity for the advertising and promotion of Cottages.com'. Giving permission for cottages.com to use your image for future campaigns (by ticking the relevant box at point of entry), means you grant us the irrevocable, royalty-free worldwide license to use your photograph(s) in perpetuity for the advertising and promotion of Cottages.com and you consent to us using your name for such purposes if you win. Credit will be given where possible, but this is not guaranteed. What do other Forum members think about this?
