    National Geographic is not what is use to be. I had to stop working with them years go. Shame.

    Thanks for the warning. I am surprised they would be that careless.

    Most photo contests have always been predatory, but this is a new low.

    This is a good lesson and discussion for new photographers. I was once a finalist in an International nature photography competition and they required the original transparencies to make copies for a book. Back in the day, a photographer never parted with the actual originals, especially long before Photoshop and digital copying. I declined and lost out. Unfortunately, it's very hard to tell someone who does not shoot for a living to give up free publicity in exchange for unlimited ripoffs.
