The Bill of Rights for Photography Competitions

In the 24th episode of EXIF and Beyond, Jim Goldstein talks with Nick Dunmur of Pro-Imaging.org about the Bill of Rights for Photography Competitions.

This is a document that outlines the conditions for photographic competition organisers and sponsors to be guided by when constructing terms and conditions for their competitions. With so many online photography competitions out there, photographers sometimes forget to read the fine print. This has resulted in several contest organizers getting away with the “Rights Grab”, leaving photographers in a cloud of confusion when they realize they’ve given away the rights to their work.

If you’ve ever considered entering your photos in a photography competition, this interview is certainly worth a listen.

Photographers Rally for Rights in Hollywood

Just a quick note on this topic… I might cover it more in-depth later. I went to a photographers rights rally in Los Angeles on June 1st, and it was a great event for both educating people and grabbing some awesome shots. There are quite a few photos in the Flickr group currently, and there was even a video made that covered the event (thanks to Naomi Mercer). Check it out, I’m in the video (I’m the one wearing the TLR)! Our buddy, Bryan Villarin, is also in the video!
