Why we require a photo release form

Entrants are required to agree to the photo release terms and conditions on the submission form prior to submitting their photos so that we have permission to reproduce the photos. This is standard practice to protect both the member and the credit union and to clearly explain the circumstances under which the photos can be used. By signing the release, winners are agreeing to allow WSECU to reproduce the photos and use their names as stated in the release.

Disclosure

*Please note, photos with identifiable faces will not be selected to move forward in the selection process. Faces that are out of focus or unrecognizable may be acceptable.

**No purchase required. Only entries that meet contest rules will be considered. Odds of winning the Member Calendar Photo Contest depend on number and quality of entries received. Limit of one winning photo per member per year. All decisions are final. Winning photographers’ names and locations (cities and states) will be published in the 2023 Member Calendar. By participating in the contest, you agree to give WSECU exclusive use of your name and image for our newsletter, web and/or any media we deem necessary.
