Competition Rules

How does the competition work?
  • Each participant can enter as many photos as they wish by uploading them to their account on the Red Sea Diving Safari website.
  • Every day the RSDS team picks a photo from all the photos entered to be a 'Photo of the Day'.
  • If your photo is picked as a 'Photo of the Day' then it has a chance to win the monthly competition.
  • At the end of the month, the RSDS team audits all the votes to ensure that everyone has played fairly and in the fun spirit of the competition (please see the note below about voting)
  • After the audit, the top photos, as ranked by the public, are sent to our Photo Pro, Paul Duxfield, who chooses a winner. 
  • The winner will be informed by email with full details of their prize, and a news article will be published on our website with feedback from the judge about his decision.
  • The winning photo may be published and congratulated on our Facebook page.
Voting
  • Voting on each photo is by star rating, with 1* being the lowest and 5* being the highest.
  • We encourage people to ask their friends and family to register and vote for their photos, but we ask that participants do not deliberately 'downrate' other photos to push them out of the competition. In cases of clear downrating, all the votes from that user will be removed. Repeated downrating will lead to a user being banned from the competition indefinitely.
General guidelines
  • Each registered member can enter the competition with more than one photo & for more than one month.
  • Photos uploaded and not chosen as ‘photo of the day’ will be carried forward to future months.
  • Only high resolution pictures (300 DPI, between min 1mb - max 3mb & max 3000 x 2300 px) & pictures taken in the Red Sea are eligible for winner of the month.
  • Photos should be submitted without watermark.
  • In order to ensure fair competition & distribution of the prize, judges may decide to choose a photo from the top 8 rankings.
  • The judge's decision is final.
  • By participating in the picture competition, you certify that the photo is your own work & you indemnify RSDS, RSDS representatives, the RSDS sales network (partner agents), as well as RSDS sister projects from copyright infringement in any form. You acknowledge that your photo may be used broadly in various multi-media presentations including but not limited to; web graphics, presentations, videos, print media & publications by the above parties. 
  • In clear terms: the copyright remains yours but you allow Red Sea Diving Safari and our partners to use it in relation to promotion of Red Sea Diving Safari or sister projects. This applies to all photos entered into the competition (not just winners).
  • The photo entries displayed on our website are at a lower quality than your original upload & display a RSDS watermark. This does not mean that RSDS takes your copyright but it is part of our efforts to minimize the risk of your photo being downloaded by a third party & used without your permission. Red Sea Diving Safari cannot be held responsible if a third party uses an image from a photo competition entry without asking for permission, however we will do our best to cooperate with you to stop the activity should you find your photo has been taken from www.redsea-divingsafari.com.
  • If a third party wishes to use any image from the photo competition gallery they should contact webmaster@redsea-divingsafari.com who will, in turn, contact the entrant for their permission. Images should not be used by any third party until written permission has been granted by the entrant, & passed on by RSDS.
