Hey guys, would you be able to help me out and vote for me? I entered the Access Your Core contest from intel, I Just found out about the contest before the weekend and its almost over, ends on the 17th.
Could you help me out and vote for me? You get a chance of winning a iCore laptop.

You do realize that when you enter a contest such as this you basically have given away full rights FOREVER to this image and they can sell it, or do whatever they want with it, with no payment to you. And that is not only if you win, but even by the very fact of entering.

Talk about a cheap way to get access to a raft of good images without charge.

Here's the paragraph from the contest rules where you've given it all away.

Quote:

5. Ownership and Publicity: Sponsor does not claim ownership of your submission to the contest; but by submitting an entry, you are granting Sponsor and its affiliated companies the following worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, unconditional, fully paid-up rights: (1) to make, have made, use, copy, reproduce, modify, and create derivative works of the contributions, (2) to publicly perform or display, import, broadcast, transmit, distribute (directly and indirectly through multiple tiers), license, offer to sell and sell, rent, lease, or lend copies of the contributions (and derivative works thereof), (3) to sublicense to third parties the foregoing rights, including the right to sublicense to further third parties,

True, however I doubt Intel is going to sell or use my photos. The purpose of this contest is to market their new iCore processors. Thanks to everyone who voted.

::Bangs head on desk::

If you market and sell that image correctly, you could buy several icore laptops....Nice shot. It'll look nice in an Intel ad. Especially considering how much Intel paid you for it...which is nothing.

Lay off him guys

If this is what he chooses to do, let him (after all, it's his photo, his time and if luck is with him, his laptop)
He's not after self righteous comments, or the school mistress approach, he's after your help if you like the photo (and perhaps even if you don't)
He's not asking for money, or trying to scam you in any way, he's just being himself

Most of the other entries on there are crap, but have a lot of votes

And quite frankly, it's attitudes like yours that make me wonder why I even bother with this site sometimes
Well, some of the photos are good, but I wonder about the motives of some of the people that post on this forum sometimes
Yes, you have a camera, and yes you have a lens, you may even know a bit about aircraft, but it seems you know little about social interaction and making people feel good about themselves

If you don't like what he has done, blow of steam to yourself, there is no need to document it
For people like me (and I hope I am not the only one) it makes you look very small in my eyes
If he had've asked 'What do you think about me entering this contest', then maybe the comments would be justified

Peter, I have passed on to my network and asked them to cast a vote for you too

Good luck
