Step 3: Your details:
The details you provide below will be used to contact you about the Paws on the Path competition and will be held securely in accordance to GDPR. We will never share your details with third parties without your consent.
Step 5: Competition rules
  • You give your permission for the South West Coast Path Association and the competition sponsors to publish your photo on our websites and Flickr galleries (which maybe embedded onto 3rd party websites) and to use it without charge to promote the competition and the South West Coast Path in publicity material such as displays, leaflets, magazines, newspaper articles and other publications (produced by third parties) and a South West Coast Path Calendar. If your photo is used in this way you will be credited as the photographer.
  • In partnership with Salmon we will produce a calendar for 2017 in which 12 photos from the competition will be selected to be used and in return each photographer will receive a portfolio of prizes.
  • You can enter as many photos as you want.
  • All photographs must be your own work, and you must legally hold the copyright to them (so no copying photos out of magazines, postcards or nicking them from websites!).
  • We make no claims on your copyright.
  • The photos must be taken on, or near to the South West Coast Path.
  • To ensure that the photos will reproduce well in the calendar, a minimum resolution of 1650 x 2100 pixels is required – although higher is better. If your camera has a resolution of at least 3 megapixels (Mp), providing the resolution settings are high / best quality, the photos should be fine. However, the maximum file size our server currently accepts is 10MB, so if necessary, please reduce your file size.
  • You can make minor digital enhancements to improve your photo whilst maintaining the natural composition of the scene itself, but no black and white or sepia images please.
  • At our discretion, all suitable entries received will be displayed on the website and our Flickr gallery, along with their caption, and the photographer’s name.
  • If the people in your photo are recognisable, you must have obtained their permission for the pictures to be entered into the competition and used for promotional purposes.
  • All entries must be received by midnight on the 1st December 2016.
  • Judges decisions are final.
