Photo District News Owns Your Fine Art. Or Not.

prop-stern.jpgFor PDN's The Curator Award (dull logo, non-consonant with their brand) you pay to enter, you hand over your rights in your images - or maybe not! and get a Moab Chinle portfolio if you win. We don't know what kind, how many pages, whether it's custom made. They kindly let you enter after their deadline if you pay more - but a deadline is the latest time at which something should be completed.

"You retain copyright to your photograph and the Sponsors may not sell your photo entry for a fee." and yet "Entries become the property of Sponsors and will not be returned or acknowledged."

I am not a fan of PDN, a lack of transparency around their competitions has bugged me for years - read comments on PDN Pulse and Rob Haggart's blog about last year's Photo Annual and be wary - their fees for that went up this year ('cos you all did 10% better last year, right?)
