Good Morning,
With regards to your photo contest, I would like to know if I enter this contest, are you stating in your contest rules that you now own the original photo and have full rights to reproducing this photo and to your affiliates? I'm trying to understand if I enter, am I giving full rights away to my photo or if it's published, do you also publish the artist's name as well?
thank you,

I believe you retain full rights to your pictures. They are yours and you should. The contests are to showcase the great plants and their photographers.

Zencat is correct. You retain ownership of the photos.

By entering you do grant us permission to republish the photos in accordance with the Terms of Service for our site, which can be read here:

Photos submitted must be your own creation without significant digital alteration

What is considered "significant digital alteration"?
