About this Report

Competitions or appeals seeking submissions of creative works from the public, works such as photos, videos, poems, music, etc., are reviewed by the Artists' Bill of Rights campaign. The reviews are to help you decide whether or not you should participate in the competition or appeal. When you create a work (e.g. a photo) the law automatically makes you the sole beneficiary of certain rights over that work. These rights are called intellectual property rights. Note: Rights for works created in the course of employment are usually owned by the employer (i.e. works for hire).

Rights have a value and you are free to decide what that value is. If a person or organisation wants to use your work to promote something, you have the right to refuse permission or to set a fee for a specific use. More information about intellectual property rights and their value to you can be read in our Guide to Rights & Licensing.

HOW THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS WILL AFFECT YOU

The following notes explain how the above terms and conditions affect your rights in respect of any works you submit to the above competition or appeal

  1. The terms and conditions are effectively claiming your copyright. (See "7. Release and Grant of Rights", above.) You will no longer be the owner of your work, legal ownership will effectively reside with the Scottish Government. This means you will not legally be permitted to use or reproduce your work again without permission from the new owner.

  2. The terms and conditions require you to waive your moral rights. This means you will not be able to object to how your work is used in future, such as it being altered in a manner you may find derogatory, or if it is used to promote a product or cause you find objectionable. You have also lost your right to be credited as the author of your work.

  3. The terms and conditions are granting the organiser unlimited use of your work for ever.

  4. The terms and conditions grant the organiser the right to use your work beyond that needed to promote the competition or appeal. Your work will be used for any purpose, including commercial use, in perpetuity. You should have the right to refuse use of your work. For further information on fees and licensing refer to the Introduction to Rights and Licensing.

For further guidance please read the Bill of Rights for Artists.

We will write to this organisation, with a link to this report, and urge them to adjust the rules as set out in the ABoR Principles document.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS (modified by BA, 7 March, 2015)

"…by entering the competition you hereby grant, if you are selected as a winner of the competition, BA the worldwide rights to use, reproduce, upload to a database, modify, publish, print, create derivative works from, distribute and/or display your photograph (or any part of it) in any form and on any media or technology including for advertising, marketing and promotional purposes, such as (without limitation): (a) on www.ba.com; and (b) in brochures and related materials; and (c) in advertising features run by our media partners, including TimeOut and the Telegraph. You agree that you may not withdraw these rights, that no fees or royalties will be payable to you for the exercise of these rights, and that BA may permit any of its third party partners to exercise these rights on our behalf."

HOW THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS WILL AFFECT YOU

The following notes explain how the above terms and conditions affect your rights in respect of any works you submit to the above competition or appeal. 

  1. The terms and conditions do not state you will always be credited when your work is reproduced. One of your most important moral rights is that you should be credited as the author of a work whenever it is reproduced.

  2. The terms and conditions are granting the organiser unlimited use of your work for ever. For non-winning works a usage time limit of 5 years or less should be set with usage limited solely to promoting the competition or appeal. It is permissable to use winning works for ever but only in a permanent winners gallery with the sole purpose of promoting a recurring competition or appeal.

For further guidance please read the Bill of Rights for Artists.

Comment

The modified and improved terms indicate your work will be used for judging purposes only and will not be published, unless you are a winner. As a winner, you will be allowing BA to use your work for promotional purposes without reservation. If the prize amount seems adequate for the rights you will be granting BA, then this contest may be for you. The choice is yours.

We thank Briitish Airways for significantly improving their terms and conditions.

About this Report

Competitions or appeals seeking submissions of creative works from the public, works such as photos, videos, poems, music, etc., are reviewed by the Artists' Bill of Rights campaign.

The reviews are to help you decide whether or not you should participate in the competition or appeal. When you create a work (e.g. a photo) the law automatically makes you the sole beneficiary of certain rights over that work. These rights are called intellectual property rights. Note: Rights for works created in the course of employment are usually owned by the employer (i.e. works for hire).

Rights have a value and you are free to decide what that value is.

If a person or organisation wants to use your work to promote something, you have the right to refuse permission or to set a fee for a specific use. More information about intellectual property rights and their value to you can be read in our Guide to Rights & Licensing.

{slide= How this Organisation's Competitions or Appeals are Listed}

Listed below in order of closing date are the competitions or appeals promoted by this organisation that we have reviewed.  For each we detail how their terms and conditions will exploit your rights. To read our review(s) just click on any competition/appeal title below.

OS PhotofitS Photofit
About this Competition

"For decades, we’ve decided what goes on our map covers. Now it’s your chance to put your photo on the map."

"We're looking for new images for the front of all our OS Explorer, Outdoor Leisure, OS Landranger and OS Tour maps - that's over 600 map covers!"  OS Photofit

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

58. By entering the Competition you grant to OS (and Ordnance Survey Leisure Limited), a non- exclusive, royalty free, worldwide, perpetual licence to publish your photo(s) on the OS Photofit website, our corporate website and social media websites (such as Facebook and Twitter), and otherwise use the photo, in connection with this Competition.

59. In the event that your photo is one of the Competition winners, you further grant to OS and Ordnance Survey Leisure Limited a non-exclusive, royalty free, worldwide and perpetual licence to publish the photo(s) on the cover of any of its paper maps, on the OS website, in promotional materials and otherwise use the photo in connection with the business of OS.

60. For the avoidance of doubt, no fees will be payable for any use of your photo(s) in connection with this Competition. In the event that we would like to use your photo for any other purpose we will contact you to discuss terms of use.

68. OS is entitled to assign any and all of its rights relating to the Competition to one of its group companies and/or any entity to whom its functions and activities are transferred.

HOW THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS WILL AFFECT YOU

The following notes explain how the above terms and conditions affect your rights in respect of any works you submit to the above competition or appeal. 

  1. The terms and conditions are unclear about how your work will be used. Never submit works to a competition or appeal without knowing how the terms and conditions will affect your rights.

  2. The terms and conditions are claiming that the rights you've granted can be transferred. You have no idea what organizations will have use of your work or how they will be used.

  3. The terms and conditions do not state you will always be credited when your work is reproduced. One of your most important moral rights is that you should be credited as the author of a work whenever it is reproduced.

  4. The terms and conditions are granting the organiser undefined use of your work forever. For non-winning works a usage time limit of 5 years or less should be set with usage limited solely to promoting the competition or appeal. It is permissable to use winning works forever but only in a permanent winners gallery with the sole purpose of promoting a recurring competition or appeal.

  5. Your work will be published on social media and subject to the individual and changing terms of each social media entity. If you've embedded metadata to identify you as the owner of the work, social media sites strip metadata in varying degrees, effectively rendering your work an orphan.

  6. The terms and conditions grant the organiser the right to use your work beyond that needed to promote the competition or appeal. Your work can be used for other purposes. Usage of your work should be restricted solely to promoting the competition or appeal. If the organisation wishes to use your work for any other purpose they should negotiate with you independently of the competition. Although the competition states in item 60 that they will negotiate use for "any other purpose", you've already granted the organizer broad, non-specific usage rights elsewhere in the terms. You should have the right to negotiate an appropriate fee for the specific use they want to make of your work and to set a time limit on such use. You should also have the right to refuse use of your work. For further information on fees and licensing refer to the Introduction to Rights and Licensing.

For further guidance please read the Bill of Rights for Artists.

We have written to this organisation, submitted a link to this report and urged them to adjust the competition rules as set out in the ABoR Principles document.

You waive any and all claims you may now or later have in any jurisdiction to so-called “moral rights” or rights of “droit moral” with respect to the User Content.

HOW THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS WILL AFFECT YOU

The following notes explain how the above terms and conditions affect your rights in respect of any works you submit to the above competition or appeal.

  1. The terms and conditions are unclear about how your work will be used. Never submit works to a competition or appeal without knowing how the terms and conditions will affect your rights.

  2. The terms and conditions state that you may be required, upon request, to "license or assign all right, title and interest in and to the Work, including without limitation, all copyrights associated therewith, in exchange for the Prizes set forth above" or forfeit your prize. You may have no control over licensing terms, and if your assign copyright to the Promoter or Sponsor, you will no longer be the owner of your work, legal ownership will be transferred to the organisation. You will not be permitted to use or reproduce your work again without permission from the new owner.

  3. Uploading work to Talenthouse and #WomenMakeItHappen requires you to grant "perpetual and irrevocable" use of your work. Although you will still be the copyright holder you will not be able to request Sponsor or Promoter to remove your work from display or from its sponsor or advertising affiliates, nor will you be able to license exclusive use to another party, if you so choose.

  4. The terms and conditions require you to waive your moral rights. This means you will not be able to object to how your work is used in future, such as it being altered in a manner you may find derogatory, or if it is used to promote a product or cause you find objectionable. You have also lost your right to be credited as the author of your work.

  5. The terms and conditions do not state you will always be credited when your work is reproduced. One of your most important moral rights is that you should be credited as the author of a work whenever it is reproduced.

  6. The terms and conditions state that if you win, or are a potential winner, you are required to complete various additional forms, but the terms and conditions of these additional forms are not displayed on the competition or appeal website. This is like being asked to sign a blank cheque. It is not an acceptable business practice to require you to accept all the terms and conditions when submitting a work but fail to display all the terms and conditions on documents you may at some stage have to complete and sign.

  7. The terms and conditions are granting the promoter and sponsor unlimited use of your work forever. For non-winning works a usage time limit of 5 years or less should be set with usage limited solely to promoting the competition or appeal. It is permissable to use winning works for ever but only in a permanent winners gallery with the sole purpose of promoting a recurring competition or appeal.

  8. The terms and conditions grant the organiser the right to use your work beyond that needed to promote the competition or appeal. Your work will be used for other purposes. Usage of your work should be restricted solely to promoting the competition or appeal. If the sponsor wishes to use your work for any other purpose they should negotiate with you independently of the competition. You should have the right to negotiate an appropriate fee for the specific use they want to make of your work and to set a time limit on such use. You should also have the right to refuse use of your work. For further information on fees and licensing refer to the Introduction to Rights and Licensing.

  9. Entrants work will be submitted to a Facebook gallery. You are then subject to Facebook's Terms and Conditions, in addition to both the Sponsor and Promoter terms! Because of Facebook's limitations on preserving embedded metadata indentifying ownership, your work is at high risk of becoming an orphan work.

For further guidance please read the Bill of Rights for Artists.

Feature Shoot

About this Organisation

traffic-light-stop"Feature Shoot showcases all genres of work from both up-and-coming and established photographers. Since launching in 2008, the website has accumulated an archive of over 4,000+ international photographers and currently receives over 550,000 visits per month.”

About this Report

Competitions or appeals seeking submissions of creative works from the public, works such as photos, videos, poems, music, etc., are reviewed by the Artists' Bill of Rights campaign. The reviews are to help you decide whether or not you should participate in the competition or appeal. When you create a work (e.g. a photo) the law automatically makes you the sole beneficiary of certain rights over that work. These rights are called intellectual property rights. Note: Rights for works created in the course of employment are usually owned by the employer (i.e. works for hire).

Rights have a value and you are free to decide what that value is. If a person or organisation wants to use your work to promote something, you have the right to refuse permission or to set a fee for a specific use. More information about intellectual property rights and their value to you can be read in our Guide to Rights & Licensing.

#MySeeYouOutThere Photo Competition

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

  • To submit via Instagram, a users profile must not be set to ‘private’. Contestants may enter directly via the Facebook app in such cases.
  • Copyrighted … or otherwise questionable content will not be considered.
  • Copyright for all images submitted for this Competition remains with the respective entrants. However, in consideration of their providing the competition, each entrant grants a worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual license to Torpedo7 to feature any or all of the submitted images in any of their stores, their websites and/or in any promotional material.

HOW THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS WILL AFFECT YOU

The following notes explain how the above terms and conditions affect your rights in respect of any works you submit to the above competition or appeal.

  1. The terms and conditions essentially mean that you waive your moral rights. This means you will not be able to object to how your work is used in future, such as it being altered in a manner you may not like. Images should only be used to promote the competition and archived in a dedicated gallery.

  2. The terms and conditions are granting the organiser unlimited use of your work for ever. For non-winning works a usage time limit of 3 years or less should be set with usage limited solely to promoting the competition or appeal. It is permissable to use winning works for ever but only in a permanent winners gallery with the sole purpose of promoting a recurring competition or appeal.

  3. The terms and conditions grant the organiser the right to use your work beyond that needed to promote the competition or appeal. Your work will be used for other purposes. Usage of your work should be restricted solely to promoting the competition or appeal. If the organisation wishes to use your work for any other purpose they should negotiate with you independently of the competition. You should have the right to negotiate an appropriate fee for the specific use they want to make of your work and to set a time limit on such use. You should also have the right to refuse use of your work. For further information on fees and licensing refer to the Introduction to Rights and Licensing.

  4. The terms and conditions show a misunderstanding of copyright. Stated terms say you may not submit copyrighted material but that you must own the copyright to the material you submit.
  5. Submitting work via social media is not in accordance with our principles because of their changing terms and conditions and their inconsistent practices regarding metadata (ownership) preservation.

For further guidance please read the Bill of Rights for Artists.

We have written to this organisation, submitted a link to this report and urged them to adjust the competition rules as set out in the ABoR Principles document.

If a person or organisation wants to use your work to promote something, you have the right to refuse permission or to set a fee for a specific use. More information about intellectual property rights and their value to you can be read in our Guide to Rights & Licensing.

Bump of the Month 2014

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

"Copyright in the information and photographs submitted on entry shall remain with the Bounty Member but by entering the competition the Member consents to the Promoter being able to use the photographs howsoever it chooses, this includes using it within its marketing materials, guides, publications, both online and in printed materials."

HOW THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS WILL AFFECT YOU

The following notes explain how the above terms and conditions affect your rights in respect of any works you submit to the above competition or appeal.

  1. The terms and conditions are unclear about how your work will be used. Never submit works to a competition or appeal without knowing how the terms and conditions will affect your rights.

  2. The terms and conditions do not state you will always be credited when your work is reproduced. One of your most important moral rights is that you should be credited as the author of a work whenever it is reproduced.

  3. The terms and conditions are granting the organiser unlimited use of your work for ever. For non-winning works a usage time limit of 5 years or less should be set with usage limited solely to promoting the competition or appeal. It is permissable to use winning works for ever but only in a permanent winners gallery with the sole purpose of promoting a recurring competition or appeal.

  4. The terms and conditions grant the organiser the right to use your work beyond that needed to promote the competition or appeal. Your work will be used for other purposes. Usage of your work should be restricted solely to promoting the competition or appeal. If the organisation wishes to use your work for any other purpose they should negotiate with you independently of the competition. You should have the right to negotiate an appropriate fee for the specific use they want to make of your work and to set a time limit on such use. You should also have the right to refuse use of your work. For further information on fees and licensing refer to the Introduction to Rights and Licensing.

For further guidance please read the Bill of Rights for Artists.

The Artists' Bill of Rights principles for Creative Competitions

Competitions which meet all the standards set out in the Bill of Rights For Artists do not do any of the following -

  • claim copyright
  • claim exclusive use
  • seek waiving of moral rights
  • fail to give a credit for all free usage
  • add, alter, or remove metadata from submissions
  • seek usage rights other than for promoting the contest and no other purpose. Note that a book, posters, cards, or a calendar are seen as legitimate ways of promoting the contest and defraying costs
  • seek free usage rights in excess of 5 years
  • use the submissions commercially without the entrant's agreement, and such commercial usage is to be subject to a freely negotiated license independently of the competition.
  • make it a condition of winning that an entrant must sign a commercial usage agreement
  • fail to publish all documents on the competition website that an entrant may have to sign
  • fail to name the judges for this or last year's competition
  • fail to explicitly state all the organisations who will acquire rights to the submissions
  • set a closing date more than 18 months after the contest launch date
  • fail to make clear statements of rights claimed and how submissions are used.

We have written an Organisers Guide to the Bill of Rights to help organisers draft terms and conditions that respect the rights of entrants and at the same time provide legal protection for the organiser.
