National Youth Cricket Day Photo Contest

February 28, 2011


In honor of National Youth Cricket Day on March 24, USYCA is sponsoring a photo contest to celebrate the children playing cricket because of the USYCA Schools Program. Just send in a photo, to which you, your school or organization owns the rights, that depicts the USYCA Schools Program in action. (For entry instructions, see the bottom of this announcement.)

The Grand Prize is a complete American Cricket Champ cricket set; Second Prize is a USYCA polo; third prize is a USYCA stitched cap.

There's no limit on how many photos you can enter, so photograph early, and photograph often!

OK, now here are the things our lawyers say we have to do to hold a proper contest. Read all the way through to be sure you haven't missed anything.

Photos are accepted by email only to: contest@usyca.org. The deadline for entries is March 20, 2011, 11:59PM, EDT (USA).

When you email your photos to USYCA, copy and paste the text below into the body of your email:

"I hereby grant to United States Youth Cricket Association, Inc. ("USYCA") a royalty-free, perpetual license to use the photographic images submitted herewith (the "Work") for any purpose whatsoever.

USYCA reserves the right to use/not use any Work as deemed appropriate by USYCA in their sole discretion. No Work will be returned once submitted.

No email received without this language can be considered for the contest.

Thanks, and good luck!
