Conditions (small print):
- It is a condition of entry that all rules are accepted as final and that the competitor agrees to abide by these rules. The decision of the judges is final and no correspondence will be entered into. Submission of an entry will be taken to mean acceptance of these terms and conditions.
- All images submitted must be the work of the individual submitting them and must not have won a prize in any other photographic competition. It is the responsibility of each entrant to ensure that any images they submit which include an identifiable person or persons have been taken with the permission of the person or persons pictured and do not infringe the copyright of any third party or any laws. Entrants must warrant that the photograph they are submitting is their own work and that they own the copyright for it.
- Copyright in all images submitted for this Competition remains with the respective entrants. However, by submitting entries, the entrant grants a perpetual licence to Rusland Horizons Trust Ltd to feature any or all of the submitted images in any of their publications, their websites and/or in any promotional material. In particular, the Trust will use entries to create a 2021 calendar which may be sold to raise income for the Trust.
- No responsibility can be accepted for lost entries and proof of transmission will not be accepted as proof of receipt. Entries must not be sent through agencies or third parties.
- There will be 12 winning entries and these will be those that are judged (by an independent panel) to be the most visually appealing, original and self-explanatory. The winners will be announced at the 2020 Rusland Show (or otherwise if deemed necessary).
- Events may occur that render the Competition itself or the awarding of the prizes impossible due to reasons beyond the control of the Trust and accordingly the Trust may at its absolute discretion vary or amend the Competition and the entrant agrees that no liability shall attach to the Trust as a result thereof.
