Google+’s Awesome New Photography Contest for College Students

The New Digital Darkroom


Google is giving away 100 of the new Ice Cream Sandwich Nexus phones, an opportunity for 10 people to be shown at the Satchi Gallery in London and a once of a lifetime opportunity to shoot anywhere in the world at your destination of choice!

They are doing this as part of a photography contest that they are running. You have to be a university student in order to qualify for the contest, but this looks like a GREAT contest. My kids are a little young to apply yet, but I always like showing this great photo of mine (above) of my son William and daughter Holly. 🙂

Check out more of the details on the Google Blog or here.

    The important part (and very correct from Google’s part):

    “As between you and Sponsor, each entrant shall retain ownership of all intellectual property rights in the entry (including moral rights) subject to these Official Rules. However, by entering the Competition, and to the extent allowed by law, entrant grants, but solely in relation to the promotion and/or advertising of the Google Photography Prize or Google+ service only, to Saatchi Gallery, London, Google and Google’s affiliates, licensees, promotional partners, developers and third party marketing entities (“Permitted Users”) a non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free license to modify, rearrange, copy, reproduce and adapt the images only to fit the format required for product web pages and marketing materials, and to publish and use the Photographs themselves and the content of and elements embodied in the Photographs, including any names, locations and likenesses, for the duration of the rights, in any and all media, including but not limited to digital and electronic media, computer, and audiovisual media (whether now existing or hereafter devised), in any language, throughout the world, and in any manner without further review, notice, approval, consideration, or compensation.
