We don’t have such a Photocompetition here in Italy and I do not understand why!!!Or maybe yes…but this is another story
I suggest all the lightstalkers to join and take part!!
Good luck!

p.s. Nayan do you remember my trouble with Nikon/Canon….I did it… I switched to Canon about 2 months ago, crazy to tell, but middle of my coverage of John Paul II’s dead and the new Pope’s election….!!!Have to admit in the beginning I felt like a “betrayer” and moreover I had some problems….as you probably know all the fuctions of the camera are the opposite from Nikon….but now I’m feeling very happy and I’m starting to “feel the cameras”.Best Alessandra

Can anyone indicate how to find information in anything but Japanese?

Even in Japanese, they don’t say much but "contact us info@miophoto.jp for query on Mio Photo Award" I guess you just have to write them…

I cant speak for the Japanese competition, as I er…can’t read Japansese – but I did notice the website had a link to the ‘MIO Photo Award Library’….and the Korean competiton stated…"Winning photographs become a part of the permanent IDPAK collection."

It would be interesting to know how much picture usage the people running the competitions get from people entering. Are they using the picutres entered to develop a commercial picture library?

There is a recent but growing trend for photo-competitions being used to collate photo-libraries by stealth – in the UK, the BBC, National Trust and the ‘Red Bull’ drinks company have used competitions to accrue image libraries without compenasting the photographers.

A recent photo-comp by the NGO Medicins Del Mundo was advertised on LS, but it was a photo-library trawling scam.

I would caution any LS member to read the Terms and Condidions of photo-competitions very carefully before entering. The competition terms could have severe implications for the ownership of your images and your ability to use them.

Thanks for the info- I’ve heard of that kind of thing happening before.  I really wish there was a marketing program that catered to photographers…  Its easy to lose good work that way
