Information for photographers:
1.) What rights of use must the photographer transfer?
The photographer transmits to VAUDE the right to use of the image material, always accompanied by the photographer’s name and VAUDE Visions Photo Contest for a period of 3 years:a) on VAUDE social media channels for advertising www.vaudevisions.com and the VAUDE Visions Photo Contest in a resolution of 1024x768 pxb) at www.vaudevisions.com for online users to download as wallpaper and for viewing in the galleryc) for various online and print- applications of the VAUDE Visions Photo Contests, for example exhibitions of the winning photos or for the Top20 photo albumd) For submission to the VAUDE Visions Photo Contest partners to advertise the contest.
Naturally, upon written request from the photographer, all photos will be deleted from VAUDE Visions.
2.) How will the photos be shown in the gallery in August?
The images will displayed in random order.
3.) What happens if a participant technically manipulates the competition, for example when a person votes for a particular photo multiple times?
The photographer may not influence the online voting by any unfair means (e.g. use of unfair voting procedures). If this is established by VAUDE, the photographer will be disqualified and all images / data deleted. On-going manual and technical controls by VAUDE will eliminate the opportunity to manipulate the vote.
4.) Could photographers with a large network have advantages in the competition?
Photographers with a lot of contacts could have advantages in the competition when they use their entire network to "advertise" for their image. However, photographers with a small network can easily make it into the top 20 when they ask their contacts to spread the news about their photo. The online audience generally votes for multiple photos so that even photos with no special “advertising” from the photographer also get voted for.
