    Think twice before you submit your photos. The only thing that will be really "healthy" at the end of this contest is the organizer's collection of "FREE" photos.

    Re: Get a chance to win CASH PRIZES by joining the 'Picture of Health' Photo Contest

    Let me say something. Last I checked, we are the largest and most popular photography magazine and community in the country. Last I checked, NOVARTIS is one large pharma company doing business in the Philippines. If big pharma wants to post their photo contest on our website, don't you think we deserve at least a call or PM in advance before they do? I don't go to their website or facebook schilling our magazine.

    David Tong brings up subject 3f which we have seen numerous companies try to do when they hold photo contests. Here at DPP, we believe in the rights of the photographers and cannot condone any contest that seeks to take away those photographers rights.

    So Denise Barrameda, let me know what PR agency you work for. And tell your employer, NOVARTIS, to come up with proper photography contest rules lest you want a serious backlash here.

    Re: Get a chance to win CASH PRIZES by joining the 'Picture of Health' Photo Contest

    Don't we have rules for posting addys for photo contest? Something like

    "Any member of this community may not post an advert of any photo contest without permission from the DPP administrator. Any adverts without prior permission from the DPP administrator will be immediately removed from the boards without question or notice to the advertiser/member."

    I'm pro-photo contests but IMO members need to understand that that can't just post ads for photo contests at will, regardless of how big or how small the company/entity (that is funding the photo contest) is. It would be disrespectful to this community - and to the DPP "owners" - if they do.

    My two cents.

    Dear Mr. Nick Tuason,

    I apologize I was not able to inform you before I posted the photo contest. I just wanted to give all the other members the opportunity to join. As a member and based on your guidelines for posting, I presumed that I was free to post this announcement under "Photo Challenges".

    Nonetheless, please delete this thread or my posting of the photo contest if you wish.


    Again, my apologies for my eagerness to invite other co-members of DPP to join the contest.

    Thank you.

    Denise Barrameda

    End of story. It looks like she's still in school, finishing her studies. It's likely a simple mistake on her end. She also had the courage to apologize.

    Let's move on.

    Thank you, Nick, for expressing DPP's unequivocal support for photographers' copyrights.
