OR....
A waiver of your rights so the competition owners can make cash from your entry.

Cybers..not just the competitions that get my hump mate, 2 e-mails from VisitScotland phone them urgent for the use of a photograph for online add campaign.
I asked them for 25 end of e-mails...

Been there Ben.

Historic Scotland is one of the worst for it. But the one that gets me is the BBC and all News Vendors.... The amount of dumb-asses who upload photos while these people are paying off photographers is astounding.

Prime example.

Local Morrisons petrol station went on fire I went and photographed the scene sent the image watermarked to the Beeb and lots of other press got a few replies back eventually sold the rights to the Record for one time use Beeb took the image from Records website published it on web I raised an action they said they bought it from the record. Contacted record about it nope image was still mine.

Ker-ching 200 from Aunty for my trouble.

Cybers...look at it this way "just nick them" and the chances of the photographer seeing them or not bothering about it still pays in the long run.
The 200 you received is nothing to them like you said before lazy journalism.

My Brother in law is an officer with L&B buddy he has just moved to HQ to shuffle paper. Would investigation unit not need a photographer ?

I'm also with L&B  , soon we'll all be "The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service" though!

You're right Fire investigation have some good cameras and get to take lots of shots, they usually don't get there till after the flames are gone though, maybe see myself going for that in the distant future, only bee in 4 years so still have lots to learn
