World Photography Day (“WPD”) is all about celebrating the wonderful gift of photography and the creative spirit encompassed throughout the community, and enables you to share your view of what photography means to you with everyone all around the world.

Agreement

By using www.worldphotoday.org (the “Site”) you agree to be bound by the below Terms & Conditions. Failure to do so may result in your account being suspended or terminated, or your access to the Site restricted.

Amendments to the Terms & Conditions

WPD may amend these Terms & Conditions on occasion, and will endeavour update users wherever possible, by notifying account holders via their registered email address, and posting the notice concerning changes to our various social media presences, including Facebook and Twitter.

Copyright

To keep events and the celebration civil, WPD requires that all users only upload works they hold the copyright to, or have permission to share. The Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy is available if you have any doubts, and for further information, you may email copyright@worldphotoday.org.

Inappropriate Content

WPD does not check each uploaded work prior to publishing, so occasionally you may happen across content that is inappropriate for the Site.

This may include, but is not limited to, content that infringes the rights of the content owner, or content that does not conform to that which a reasonable person would find acceptable, such as racial, religious, human villification, or pornographic, abusive, or otherwise in bad taste. WPD will be the sole judge in determining whether reported works are in breach set forth above.

You may report inappropriate content via email at report@worldphotoday.org.

Privacy Policy

Users should familiarise themselves with our Privacy Policy.

Competitions

Uploaded entries may be eligible for prizes which will be judged firstly by the community, by way of votes, and secondly by our panel of judges. Winners will be announced by WPD and no correspondence will be entered into. Winners may not be the users with the highest vote count by the community, however, these votes will factor heavily in shortlisting works for the judges to deliberate over.
