“Why I Love Arizona” Photo Contest from Long Realty Can Win You $1,926

Is it the desert fauna, abundant wildlife, a scene of your city or our beautiful sunsets? A photo of what you love about Arizona can get you $1,926 as Long Realty Company celebrates 85 years of success helping Arizonans.

“When we were creating 'Why I Love Arizona', we wanted to celebrate both our state and the 85th Anniversary of Long Realty Company. What a more positive way to do it than with photos! We look forward to giving $1,926—an amount representing the year Long Realty Company was founded—to the person who can best depict his/her love for Arizona,” said Rosey Koberlein, CEO of Long Companies.

For 85 years Long Realty Company has shown that Arizona is a great state to live in. Long Companies wants to encourage members of the public to take pride in their communities and surrounding environments. Photographers in this contest should aim to capture a unique photo that encompasses Arizona’s magnificence.

Koberlein continued, “Every person has a different experience in Arizona. We want to learn more about the areas people enjoy most. At Long Realty we love Arizona, and we see this campaign as an opportunity to celebrate our state and motivate citizens to do their part in making it an enjoyable place to live.”

Photographers should submit photos to www.whyilovearizona.com until the submission deadline on October 31, 2011. After all photos are submitted, a Long Realty panel will judge the submitted photos and pick the top 20, which will be featured on the website for online voting. Then from November 14 to December 2, online viewers will have a chance to vote for their favorite photo—the photo with the most votes will win that person $1,926.

    Is there a link to photos that are already submitted?

  3. It's too bad this clause is in the rules (ALL CAPS theirs):
     
    ENTERING A SUBMISSION IN THIS CONTEST CONSTITUTES PARTICIPANT'S IRREVOCABLE ASSIGNMENT, CONVEYANCE, AND TRANSFERENCE TO Long Companies OF ALL RIGHT, TITLE, AND INTEREST IN THE SUBMISSION, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ALL COPYRIGHTS.
    As I'd like to submit, but won't give up all my rights to the photo in order to do so… 

  4. Michael White says:

    I too noticed the same contractural statement where the owner gives up all rights simply by submitting, whether you win or not.  What a tragedy, since there is a lot of wonderful work that was submitted. That is why I and a lot of others did not submit our work.  I think this policy needs a close look because the photographers when though a lot of time, hard work, and invenstment in many of these photos.  I wish them the best…

      Michael – thanks for your comment. During the course of the contest we modified the contest rules based on feedback. We no longer required the owner of the photo to assign copyright ownership, rather just allow Long Realty a non exclusive right to use the photo in the contest and in the promotion of the contest. Rules can be found here http://whyilovearizona.com/pdf/wilaz-contest-rules.pdf . We appreciate the tremendous support we have received from the community for Why I Love Arizona.
