Example: Backpacker magazine has a photo contest, but the submitter is required to allow the use of the image at Backpacker's discretion with no monetary gain. Your name will be mentioned, but the image may be sold to other 'vendors' without the say of the one who took it.

This is a huge reason why I don't ever submit.



Thats bull! I'm glad I didn't re-subscribe.

Great photo and congratulations!

This is a great thread because I'm sure Alpinist would not have bragged all over the web if this topic was not brought up. bring on more winning photos people!

tazz wrote:yes I have. More local though. One was published in a book and two others in a 2009 calendar. The published one was a contest decided by the author of a climbing book. The calendar was by votes only. I won December and February. I wish I could afford a better camera and learn how to use all the functions. I am more of a point and shoot gal. It is all about timing, lighting and composition for me. I love taking pics and sharing. One of my fav things next to mountains and climbing.


You have some great photos Tazz!! I'm saving for the Nikon D90- A little big and bulky but, oh well.

Don't know if it won any contests, but Super Dave got a photo on a cover:

I don't know why every time I try to submit an image I get the red X of death. Here is the url:

Never won a contest but have sold quite a few to various places. National Geographic Just bought this one.

They found it on flickr and contacted me to buy it.

There are some shots that are truly art. Very impressive. I have a suggestion, for those shots that are something special, the photographer should note shutter speed, aperture, etc with the photo
