Alert: Ski Area Gets RF Images from Photo Contest

Photo by Ashley Hahn-Severance
Spring skiing provides great photo opportunities. Accordingly, the Loveland Ski Area is sponsoring a photo contest, but it leaves the photographer in the cold.

The rules provide that:

Contestants grant Loveland Ski Area and contest sponsors unlimited usage and unrestricted rights of any photograph submitted to the contest. Any submitted photograph may be used in products, promotional materials, or in any manner Loveland sees fit.

At least you are granting the RF license only to the Ski Area. But what do you get if you win? You won't know for a while: "Monthly prizes will be given out January - April to the months best submission. At the end of the season, an overall winner will be selected as well as category winners. The overall winner will not be eligible for category winnings."

Thanks to Ashley Hahn-Severance for submitting this alert and photograph.
