Photo Contest Terms
Who Can Enter:
Any traveller* on a Butterfield & Robinson trip is eligible to enter the 2015 TRAVELLER PHOTO CONTEST (the “2015 Contest”). There is a limit of five entries per traveller, per trip taken. Only photos that have not previously been entered in a B&R Traveller Photo contest may be submitted.
What to Enter:
Digital photos only. Digital photos should be sent as attachments via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Each digital entry must be saved as a normal quality JPEG with a file size no smaller than 1 MB and no larger than 5 MB. Computer-altered photographs are not eligible and will not be accepted for consideration.
Only images taken on Butterfield & Robinson trips within FIVE years of the contest closing deadline are eligible for entry. Each image must be entered in one of three image categories: Places, Faces and Moments.
Each traveller may submit a maximum of five photos per trip and may submit photos for more than one trip.
Each photo must be accompanied with the following information for each image: the trip on which it was taken, the approximate date the image was taken and the category for which it is being submitted. We also encourage you to submit a short paragraph (3-4 sentences) that describes the moment that the photo was taken, or your memory of the trip.
Deadline for submissions for the 2015 Contest is December 11, 2015. Those entries submitted after that time may be considered for use in various B&R publications, or for any subsequent photo contest, but will not be eligible to win the prizes for the 2015 Contest. Judging will be conducted by a panel of qualified judges including experts in the field of photography and Butterfield & Robinson personnel.
All entries will be judged on artistic expression, technical composition , and sense of place. This is a contest of pure skill for purposes of the Criminal Code and the Competition Act (Canada).
Butterfield & Robinson does not accept responsibility for the loss of or damage to submitted work. Butterfield & Robinson reserves full publishing and advertising rights to all photo entries.
3 Category prizes, each a $1,500 USD Butterfield & Robinson Trip Credit, will be awarded for the best eligible image submitted chosen one from each category.

In consideration for participating in the contest, participants agree that Butterfield & Robinson Inc. (“B&R”), or its designate, may use for commercial purposes any photographic or digitally recorded images (“Images”) submitted. For each image used (other than for promoting the 2015 Contest or any other photo contest on our website and by email), the 2015 Contest participant (“the Participant”) submitting the applicable Image will be awarded a one-time $250 trip credit (non-transferrable, valid for two years from date of issuance), in consideration of a perpetual royalty free license for all uses and reproductions of the applicable Image.
By submitting an image or photograph each Participant grants to B&R an exclusive, unlimited perpetual license for all uses and reproduction of all winning photographs or images.
Each Participant represents and warrants to B&R that: each submitted Image is original; each Image has not been published or used for a commercial purpose; he or she owns all copyright and other property rights in and to all Images submitted by him or her for consideration in the 2015 Contest. Each Participant waives all moral rights in each Image submitted by him or her. Each Participant agrees to execute all reasonable documentation, at B&R’s cost, to give effect to the foregoing including any reasonable instrument of assignment and consents to his or her name and/or likeness being used, published and reproduced by B&R.
The Contest prizes are offered subject to B&R’s standard terms and conditions, which can be found in our main brochure, on our web site at www.butterfield.com, or upon request. Trip credits are applicable to any B&R Trip. Trip credits are valid for two years from the date of issue and are not transferable. The winners are responsible for the balance of their trip price, air travel, insurance, any relevant taxes, and expenses not specifically included in the B&R trip to which trip credit prizes are applied. Reservations are subject to availability at the time of booking. B&R reserves the right to cancel the trip on which any reservation has been made, in which case an affected prizewinner may make a reservation on another trip. Prizes are not transferable or convertible to cash. Prizes have no cash value. Employees or contractors of B&R are not eligible to participate in the Contest.
Contest prizes are offered subject to the winners’ agreement that they and their travel companion(s), if any,) will sign B&R’s then-applicable Acknowledgement of Risk, Release and Indemnity provided. Failure to sign this document will eliminate a winner’s entitlement to receive the prize. A winner’s acceptance of a prize shall be good and sufficient consideration for the provision of the Acknowledgement of Risk, Release and Indemnity to B&R by the prizewinner and his/her travelling companion.
