Usage Rights policy – Pictures will be Published at The WMPO Exhibition and the WMPO Website and Announcements with Credits. You as the owner of the submitted image(s) provide the rights for the organisers to sell your work globally as prints in perpetuity.
NOTE: the usage rights policy was queried in regards to the rights to sell the work of entrants as prints, and this was the response from organisers – ‘There is no intention to sell the prints from the Exhibition. If someone is interested in buying one picture we will get in contact with the Photographer. We are a non profit Organisation.’
Our suggestion to the organiser in response was to change the wording of this part of the usage rights policy, as the current wording is unnecessary.
