We do not have agreements with external organizations to collect personal data on our website. The information we collect from children is used to respond to specific requests from children to participate in activities such as contests or sweepstakes. We do not share children`s personal information with anyone other than those who provide support for the internal operation of the Site and with our agents (e.g., contractors who provide fulfillment or technical support services for the Site) and to support this contest.

Additional packages must be purchased, there are no refunds or additional additions. (See below for more information on entrance fees.) Participants can then start uploading their images. General participants must enter each photo in one of the first seven categories (see below).

General participants can submit all images in one category or select different categories for different photos. The same photo cannot be submitted in more than one category. As mentioned above, participants must enter their photos in the Youth category.

The Smithsonian will determine the eligibility of winners in its sole discretion. Before you start writing the rules, take a second to plan your contest. First, ask yourself the following questions so you don`t waste time thinking about rules that don`t apply. Here are some standard rules you can customize to suit your needs for your unique photo contest: Each entry consists of a registration form and a single image. To participate, visit caltrout.org/photocontest to fill out a registration form with the required information, including your name, address, phone number, email address, and caption. and submit your photo according to the instructions below.

The answers to these questions will help you determine the rules specific to your competitors. If you talk to your participants in advance, they will know what to expect before, during and after the competition.
