I got a press release about a new photo contest that might be of interest. It’s open to amateur photographers in Europe. You upload six images from now to October. Each country has it’s own competition and you can win prices from Panasonic.
One important note, however: Carefully check the rules. I wasn’t too pleased about this paragraph:
13.a. Entrants agree that, in relation to any photographs selected as winning photographs, they grant Panasonic Battery Sales Europe NV, Panasonic Marketing Europe GmbH and Matsushita Electric companies and other members of the Panasonic Group an exclusive license to use images for 5 years for no charge for their marketing and promotional activities.
