  1. Gino,

    What I wrote in my blog is my own personal opinion and i have every right to my own photograph whether I want to enter the competetion or otherwise. And for others they are free to do whatever they like with their own photos. You dont need to justify the action of a profit-making private company. Comparing with CIMB Foundation as I mentioned earlier I can still compromise if the body organizing the photo contest is a non-profit organization or govt agency. And CIMB Foundation is a non-profit organization and is organizing the contest to help the community project.

    Who is Gino actually? Why did you come to BASF Petronas Chemicals’ defence? Are you representing its board of directors or its management? If that’s so why didn’t you publish your real name instead of hiding behind a pseudonym?

  2. Just check the CIMB Foundation Photography Contest. They have similar rules as listed below:

    Copyright of all images submitted for this competition shall be irrevocably granted to CIMB Foundation and their respective successors, licensees and assign the right in perpetuity to use, re-use, publish, and re-publish, and otherwise reproduce, modify and display, the photographs, and any text and information that is submitted, and name and likeness and the name and likeness of the persons depicted in the submitted photographs, in whole or in part, in connection with the photographs.

    b) In consideration of providing any image and or any text for the Contest, each contestant grants a worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual license to CIMB Foundation to feature any or all of the submitted images in any of their publications, their websites and/or in any promotional material connected to this contest.

    c) The owners of winning photographs shall grant the copyright of their winning photographs to CIMB Foundation, their respective successors, licensees and assigns the rights granted in this terms and conditions on behalf of the photographer and/or the persons depicted in the photographs.

  3. We all have an informed choices as the rules and regulations are clearly published.I personally have not entered a photo competition where the non-winning entries are returned. Have you? The rules and regulations, you have highlighted is common in most photography competition.
