Photobr, an annual pan-Canadian photography contest to benefit the Retina Foundation of Canada will run throughout the month of October!
The theme for the contest is: what you would miss if you were blind. The idea is to get as many people as possible to post photographs on our website (photobr.org), and then let the public choose the photos of their liking by donating funds to celebrate their choice. In other words, to vote for a photo, you need to make a donation – no matter how big or small.
The retina serves the same function as film in a camera – it helps to produce an image and then converts it into nerve signals which tell our brain what to see.
The list of retinal diseases is impressive. The list of well-known people to have had retinal diseases or retinal problems due to injury is equally so: Theodore Roosevelt, Joseph Pulitzer, Sugar Ray Leonard, the former Montreal Canadiens’ captain Saku Koivu, to name a few.
Each Contest entrant can submit up to a maximum of 5 photographs to the Contest. All photos must be submitted by the photographer who took the photograph.
By submitting your photos, you agree to grant to the Foundation an unlimited, perpetual, royalty-free, irrevocable and non-exclusive right and license to use your photo in connection with the Retina Foundation activities and publications, in any media throughout the world, in any way the Foundation wants.
In order that the Foundation can use your photo, you confirm that (a) your photo is your own original work; (b) you own all the rights in the photo, including copyright; (c) you have the right to give the Foundation permission to use your photo for the purposes specified above; (d) the photo is not defamatory and does not infringe any Canadian laws or violate the rights of any third party; (e) you have the consent of anyone who is identifiable in your photo or the consent of their parent / guardian if they are minors; (f) you waive any moral rights that you may have in the photo; (g) you indemnify the Foundation against any claim, demand, action, suit, or other proceedings against Foundation arising out of the use of the photo or any false or inaccurate statements.
The Foundation reserves the right to remove any photo that it, in its sole discretion, deems unsuitable or non-compliant with these Contest rules.
If you do not want to grant the Foundation the permission set out in these rules, please do not submit your photo.
