I have a friend of mine...who will remain nameless, unless he chooses to say who he is,... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

.....who submitted pictures to a certain clothing designer's "customer contest"......(LOL,...I actually was the customer who bought the item used in most of the photos.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] ).....The model gets several pictures of herself and first name credit,...and is awarded a prize of a certain amount of money's worth of clothing from the designer, (less than 300 dollars) that doesn't suggest that it must be recieved by the model, so I would imagine it *could* be won by the photographer, if she gets enough votes from the public to win.

The photographer get's the store's mark typed up the side of his picture, and his mark doesn't show,...nor is there any name given of the photographer for photo credit.

With that in mind,....are you more likely to enter, or buying the clothing for the model to wear, from the designer, for this contest of their's, or would you be more likely to abstain from the contest, knowing that your name, or mark will not appear on, or along side your photos?



Your thoughts..

That sort of "contst" sounds like a great way to get a lot of mediocre photos to advertise clothing on the net. Personally, I would take a pass. Cash get my photos for advertising, wining a semi phoney 'contest' doesn't.

I think is pretty straight forward. You know the rules up front and they are either acceptable or not.

Personally I think it sucks. Its like getting free photography with no credit. And they will. Lots of people will jump on the "promotion." They will even receive a few good photos because of luck and volume.

Interesting business model. Its low end. One has to decide if they want to be associated with low end.
