Use of Members’ Images
Entering an image (print or digital) into a MPS competition or into an external competition via MPS grants the club permission to publicly display that image at MPS meetings for the purposes of competition and recognising good work.
MPS wants to display those images which are awarded Honours and Highly Commended on the MPS website and in the club’s newsletter. Submitting a digital competition entry or a digital version of a print entry to MPS grants the club permission to display that image on the MPS website and in the club’s newsletter unless the member opts out by including “COMPETITION USE ONLY” in the body of the email that submits the image.
Any other use of a member’s image will only occur with the prior permission of the author, e.g. club representation in external competitions.
Images will remain the property of their author at all times and the author will be acknowledged on the MPS website and in the club’s newsletter if his or her images appear in those publications.
Members who have questions should contact email@example.com
