I'm getting really sick of seeing these competitions with famous authors/directors etc (Neil Gaiman, Robert Rodriguez and such) trying to scam hardworking artists work for free. The terms and conditions are truly alarming. Having just read the Robert Rodriguez one in particular, it basically states that anything you submit, Blackberry will own and can use your name and twitterhandle and your likeness for anything they like and whatever advertising and promotional material they want to until the end of time and you can do nothing about it. These people have enough money and they can afford to pay for storyboards and art directors etc but they want to basically steal your IP from you and give you no compensation or even credit for your work. Absolutely disgusting.

I am a digital art dabbler with an interest in fantasy photomanipulation and photography. I have only recently begun to realise my artistic potential and am trying to learn as much as I can, and thoroughly enjoying myself along the way! I also make jewellery, cards and various other bits and pieces as the mood takes me.

Thank you. I credited your astute observation in my latest journal. It's at the bottom, "But wait... there's more!" [link]

thanks! It is a bit of a worry, just by participating you seem to allow them to do that. I work for a law firm (but not a lawyer) and they are some of the scariest T&C's I have come across.

:) It is worrying. More of us need to speak out against this sort of thing. Thank you for spreading the word. :handshake:
