Wildlife around the Solway Competition 2009
Conditions of entry:

Photographs must depict Wildlife around the Solway.
This will be interpreted in the widest possible way with the final decision over eligibility being decided by STAG.

This is a competition for photographers of all levels of ability. Entrants must not be professional photographers and, for the purposes of this competition, a professional photographer will be considered to be someone who makes more than half their annual income from photography.

We welcome entries from beginners as well as experienced photographers (from digital camera or film). Everyone has an equal opportunity to win in this competition.

Your name and postal address plus telephone number must all be clearly stated on the back of each photo or on your covering email. If you are 16 or under, please tell us your age. Please also tell us where and when the photo was taken.

The competition will close on 31st December 2009. Judging will take place in January. The winners will be chosen during January/February 2010 and the list of winners will be published in the Solway Buzz. All entries will be judged by a panel of judges selected by STAG (Silloth Tourism Action Group) and the Solway Buzz.

No entries can be returned and proof of posting is not proof of receipt. The organisers accept no responsibility for entries lost, damaged or delayed in the post or by email.

All entries must be the original work of the entrant and must not infringe the rights of any other party. The entrants must be the sole owner of copyright in all photographs entered and must have obtained permission of any people featured in the entries or their parents/guardians if children under 16 are featured. Further, entrants must not have breached any laws when taking their photographs. Prior to submission, entrants must not have offered any of their entries for sale, been paid for any publication of any of their entries or won or been a runner up in any other photographic competition with any of their entries. Entrants will retain copyright in the photographs. By entering the competition all entrants grant to the Solway Buzz and STAG the right to publish and exhibit their photographs as they see fit. While we will make every effort to credit photographers, we cannot guarantee that every use of the photographs will include photographers' names. STAG also reserves the right to sell photographs or other products featuring images entered with any profit going towards STAG funds for the benefit of the area. There will be no payment to the photographer.

If the winners are unable to be contacted after reasonable attempts have been made, we reserves the right to either offer the prize to a runner up or to re-offer the prize in any future competition.

We may request an original size digital file or original negative of your work for promotional purposes. The organisers regret they cannot accept any liability for the unauthorised duplication or use of images displayed on this website or in the Solway Buzz.

By submitting images to this competition, each entrant confirms that:
a) they are the sole author of each entry and that it is their original work;
b) they own the copyright and any other intellectual property rights of each image;
c) they have the permission of those pictured in the image (or, where the image shows any persons under 18, the consent of their parent/guardian) for the usage rights required by clause 4 and will indemnify us against any claims made by any third parties in respect of such infringement;
d) they have not licensed or disposed of any rights in the image that would conflict with uses to be made by us.
