Author copyright
Each participant owns the copyright of the submitted images. The participant certifies the work as his or her own.

No photographs entered for Limited Photos Club New Year’s Photo Contest will be offered for sale or used by Limited Photos Club for any commercial or other purposes other than for the marketing of this contest without the approval of the photographer.

Publication of images
Each participant is personally responsible for the images submitted to this contest. The participant also authorizes the publication and the images, in a different size if necessary, exclusively for matters related to this contest.

An entry may be rejected by the Organizing Committee if it does not conform to Contest rules and conditions.

Digital post-processing procedures
You may use digital post-processing to optimize an image, and you may crop images slightly, but you are not permitted to add or remove key elements of the composition. Brightness, contrast, color balance can all be adjusted. Dust spots, minor elements, etc. can be retouched. Images can be sharpened before printing. Post-processing, which could realistically be achieved in a darkroom will be accepted but jurors have the discretion to reject any entry which has been, in their opinion, over-manipulated and therefore removing the integrity of the original image.

Jury Panel Rules
Entries will be evaluated by a nominated Jury panel. The judging is anonymous. Judges are not aware of participants’ names or details. The juror will assess the images for visual impact, composition, originality, technique, and creativity and the ability to communicate a message, a feeling, or an emotion. The selected Jury panel represents a broad spectrum of photographers and of editors. All images participating are judged online by the entire Jury Panel, thus allowing all jurors to view the images independently, regardless of where in the world they are. Winners will arise from the highest image score. Entries with the highest final score will be declared as winners.

1st place – $3,500 cash prize and guaranteed placement in our weekly emails to collectors, curators and gallery owners, for 1 year.
2nd place – $1,000 worth of photography equipment and guaranteed placement in our weekly emails to collectors, curators and gallery owners, for 1 year.

NB You need to refer their site (which doesn't seem to consist of anything at all!!) to a minimum of 5 other photographers before you'll get sent an invitation. They say they are photo-curators that submit selected pictures to potential buyers or galleries but there is no evidence of this - I really wonder how genuine this is.
