By submitting your images to the CitiesToBe Photo Award, the author of each photograph affirms that he or she holds all necessary authorization from the people, places and brands that may appear in the photographs, with the participant being solely responsible for any claims that may arise and with the organization of the contest (CitiesToBe.com and the company that runs it, Anteverti Consulting SL) being exempt from all responsibility.

The intellectual rights and the rights of exploitation (exhibition, reproduction, communication, publication and public distribution) of the images received will be held by the author of the photographs, without geographical or temporal limits. However, both anteverti and CitiesToBe keep the right to use the images always referencing the context of the photography contest, in the promotion of the same through CitiesToBe.com and social media. More specifically, the use of the awarded photographs by anteverti and CitiesToBe will be as follows:

• The winning photograph will become part of the private collection of anteverti, the organization that runs the blog CitiesToBe.com. It will also be included in the CitiesToBe Photo Award 2019 ebook to be digitally disseminated and, eventually, printed or featured in postcards. In all cases, the appropriate credit will be given to the authors, including their name, surname, the title of the photograph and its associated statement.

• The finalist images will also be included in the CitiesToBe Photo Award 2019 ebook to be digitally distributed and eventually printed (as a physical version of the ebook or as paper postcards). In all cases, appropriate credit will be given to the authors, including their name, surname, the title of the photograph and its associated statement.

• The non-finalist images may be digitally used for promotional purposes of the contest through CitiesToBe.com and anteverti social media channels under the same conditions stated above. In all cases, the appropriate credit will be given to the authors, including their name, surname, the title of the photograph and its associated statement.

• All submitted materials can be used for the production of the CitiesToBe Photo Award 2019 ebook and/or postcards in case of winning or being finalists. Both the winner and finalists will commit to cooperate on the production of the ebook or postcards by sending the required materials via WeTransfer or similar (images in JPG or TIF format with the maximum quality and size, and texts in Word or similar open format). Any translation of the provided texts will be done by CitiesToBe.
