The individual ("Owner") who owns the copyright to the photograph(s) or digital file(s) being submitted (the "Work") for a Lenspiration Shoot to Serve Photo Assignment ("Assignment"), hereby grants Lenspiration the right to download the Work for the purposes of critiquing it on Lenspiration webinars and delivering the Work to the organization or individual requesting the Work (the "Publisher") if, and only if, the Publisher chooses the Work as the winner of the Assignment.

Owner also hereby grants Lenspiration and Publisher the non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-sublicensable, and perpetual right to use, reproduce, and distribute the copyrighted Work and to incorporate the copyrighted Work, in whole or in part, into derivative works for sale, distribution, and advertising of their products or services. (This type of agreement is typically defined as a Royalty-Free License.)

Both Lenspiration and Publisher are prohibited from using the Work for any other purpose, including: selling, licensing or distributing electronic copies of the Work as stand-alone files or as part of a product from which a person is able to extract the Work as a standalone file; distributing the Work in or as part of an electronic template (e.g., as an image available in a word processing or web page creation application) intended to be reproduced by third parties on electronic or printed products; using the Work to advertise anything other than their own products or service; or using the Work as part of a trademark, service mark or logo.

Owner retains the copyright of the Work and all other rights in the Work or any derivative work, including without limitation, the right to use, copy, sell, license, and distribute copies of the Work in all markets and territories. All rights not specifically granted in writing, including copyright, remain the exclusive property of the Owner.
