1) The theme of the British Society for Geomorphology (BSG) photographic competition is geomorphology and is open to individual interpretation.

2) Entrants can submit up to two photos through either the BSG Facebook account (https://www.facebook.com/geophemera) or Twitter feed (@geophemera). The BSG may subsequently contact entrants to supply a high resolution copy of the photograph.

3) The competition is open to all up-to-date members of the British Society for Geomorphology (non-members’ entries will be disqualified).

4) Each entry should be marked with the entrant’s name and the location and date that the photograph was taken.

5) The competition opens on Monday 16 March 2015 and closes at midnight on Sunday 12 April 2015 (UTC).

6) All entries will be judged by the members of the BSG Publications Committee. They will shortlist the top three photographs and select their favourite entry; the winner will receive a prize of £100 and two runners up prizes of £50 will be awarded to the other two shortlisted entries. The top 4 photographs will also be used on the front cover of the society journal Earth Surface Processes and Landforms during 2016. Our decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. The prize is non-transferable, non-refundable and non-changeable. Competition winners will, in the first instance, be contacted through the Twitter or Facebook accounts with which they submitted their entries.

7) All entries must be the original work of the entrant and must not infringe the rights of any other party. The entrants must be the sole owner of the copyright in all photographs entered and must have gained permission of any people featured in their entries. Further, entrants must not have breached any laws when taking their photographs.

8) Entrants will retain copyright in the photographs that they submit. By entering the competition all entrants grant the BSG the right to use the images on publicity material for the society and on the BSG website and social media sites. No fees will be payable for any of the above uses.

9) By entering, entrants will be deemed to have agreed to be bound by these rules and the BSG reserves the right to exclude any entry from the competition at any time and in its absolute discretion if the BSG has reason to believe that an entrant has breaches these rules.
