Competition Rules

  • Each registered member can enter the competition with more than one photo & for more than one month. Each participant can rate a photo only one time. If your photo is chosen as a picture of the day, you are then automatically entered into the monthly competition. The monthly winner is chosen & will be notified by e-mail. Only high resolution pictures (300 DPI, between min 1mb - max 3mb & max 3000 x 2300 px) & pictures taken in the Red Sea are eligible for winner of the month.
  • If you submitted a photo that didn’t win picture of the day for that particular month, this doesn’t necessarily mean that your photo wasn’t chosen. It may be a winner during following months & make sure to check regularly to see if your picture has been chosen.
  • As a general rule our competition judges will choose the monthly winner based on the photo that has the highest ranking. In order to ensure fair competition & distribution of the prize, judges may decide to choose second, third, or even fourth runner up.
  • By participating in the picture competition, you certify that the photo is your own work & you indemnify RSDS, RSDS representatives, the RSDS sales network (partner agents), as well as RSDS sister projects from copyright infringement in any form. You acknowledge that your photo may be used broadly in various multi-media presentations including but not limited to; web graphics, presentations, videos, print media & publications by the above parties.
  • The photo entries displayed on our website are at a lower quality than your original upload & display a watermark. This does not mean that RSDS takes your copyright but it is part of our efforts to minimize the risk of your photo being downloaded by a third party & used without your permission. We cannot be held responsible if a third party uses an image from a photo competition entry without asking for permission, however we will do our best to cooperate with you to stop the activity should you find your photo has been taken from
  • If a third party wishes to use any image from the photo competition gallery they should contact who will, in turn, contact the entrant for their permission. Images should not be used by any third party until written permission has been granted by the entrant, & passed on by RSDS.
  • Voting: This competition is supposed to be fun & inclusive & therefore we ask that all members participate fairly. Deliberately downrating good pictures only to give your own picture or that of a friend a better chance to win, is considered foul play. Anyone who shows repeated indications that they are not participating in the fun & fair manner which the competition is meant will receive a warning via e-mail & his/her votes will be removed from the competition. He/she may then be barred from the competition indefinitely.
