Conde' Nast Contest

One of the more recent issues of Conde' Nast traveler recently announced their 20th anniversary $20,000 Dream Trip Contest.

Upload a memorable travel moment—a photograph you took on your travels and a brief explanation of what you're sharing—to our online contest gallery. Wow the editors and win a $20,000 DREAM TRIP TO ANYWHERE ON EARTH!
Other prizes like digital cameras and noise canceling headphones are awarded on a daily basis. I submitted one of my favorite photographs from our past trip to London. However, it wasn't until I submitted the photograph that I noticed "the small print". If you care about maintaining the rights to your photograph, know that the contest rules include the following clause (all caps is their doing, not mine):
Sponsor shall have the right to edit, adapt, and publish any or all of the Submissions, and may use them in any media without attribution or compensation to the contestant, his or her successors or assigns, or any other entity. ENTERING A SUBMISSION IN THIS CONTEST CONSTITUTES PARTICIPANT'S IRREVOCABLE ASSIGNMENT, CONVEYANCE, AND TRANSFERENCE TO SPONSOR OF ALL RIGHT, TITLE, AND INTEREST IN THE SUBMISSION, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ALL COPYRIGHTS.
Of course, if you simply want to enjoy the submissions, don't miss out on the contest gallery. There are thousands upon thousands of pictures to browse - some stunning, some not so great.
