Is it just me, or is the BBC's picture of Britain competition a sinister attempt to acquire a huge royality free image library?

No, you can't have rights to license my photos to others unless I win. In other words, get stuffed.

Copyright does, however, stay with the photographer.

I suspect the BBC have a pretty large image library of their own already, though I don't actually know this. Personally I'd be much happier for them to use one of photos for free than a commercial organization, too.

Problem is you also sign over the rights for them to sell the rights to others.

Yes, that particular deal looks less attractive.
