If you have pictures of Matera (south italian town) you might want to participate.
â‚¬10K to the winner and â‚¬1K to each category winner. Sounds interesting? Well, read the rules before applying, because (I translate from italian):
“…you grant the authorisation to use the submitted pictures for any use without any compensation.”
I asked for information about this and they replied (this is not my translation, hope you get it):
> the apt will be using the shots to promote the >Basilicata region at various trade fairs/ on the web/ in >print etc. and we would very much like to publish a book >with the best shots. Seeing as though the book will not be >free as we need to cover costs for print (to limit these >we have Antezza tipografi as our only major private >sponsor), but without asking a cover charge for the same >would not be able to print the same.
