Photographer Release


I affirm that I am the creator of the attached photographs and have the legal authority to submit the photograph as an entry in the 2015 Mountains of the Land Trust Photo Contest. I agree that the photograph may be used by  Desert Foothills Land Trust (DFLT) or its designees without royalty or compensation. I understand that submitted photographs may be used on websites, in publications, displayed in public exhibitions, printed in media, used in press or advertising or for any other purpose without limitation. I understand that I will be credited as the photographer whenever possible, but that may not always be possible. I waive any right to inspect or approve the printed or electronic materials that may be used in conjunction with my entry now or in the future. I understand that I also have the right to continue to use or distribute my photograph(s) as I so desire. 

I agree to release, defend and hold harmless the DFLT and its agents, employees and media outlets, including any firm publishing and/or distributing any finished products in whole or in part, from and against any claims, damages or liability arising from or related to the use of the photograph, including but not limited to cropping, distortion, blurring, or alteration of any kind that may occur during the use of the photo or the creation of the finished product, its publication or distribution.  

I affirm that I am at least 18 years of age and competent to sign this agreement on my own behalf, or I have had a parent or guardian sign on my behalf. I, my parent, or guardian have read this release and the rules on the previous page and fully understand the contents, meaning and impact of this release.
