Entrants understand that the Photo and an excerpt of the submitted description will be posted on the Contest Site in connection with the Contest and made available for voting.

Proof that Individual submitted a Photo for entry into the Contest does not constitute proof or evidence that Sponsors actually received it within the Entry Period.

Photos that do not comply with these Official Rules or that otherwise contain prohibited, or inappropriate content as determined by the Sponsors, in their sole discretion, will be disqualified and will not be published or considered. Sponsors shall make the final determination as to which Photos are eligible to take part in this Contest and be considered for inclusion. From time to time during the Entry Period, Sponsors may, in their sole discretion, choose to feature some recent Photos on the Website or social media channels. Being featured on the Website or via social media channels is unrelated to the voting process or Judging Criteria and in no way reflects the possibility of the Photo being considered as a Finalist or Grand Prize Winner in the Contest.

Sponsors do not endorse any Photo or any opinion, recommendation, or advice expressed therein, and the Sponsors expressly disclaim any and all liability in connection with Photos.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ANY AND ALL PHOTOS AND METADATA SUBMITTED FOR THIS CONTEST MAY BE UPLOADED TO THE CONTEST GALLERY AND MAY BE PUBLICLY VIEWABLE.
