Not that I'd ever win, because as recent events have demonstrated I'm incapable of winning a photo competition. laugh.png But if I did that EP-3 would go to a budding young photographer from a poor background.

"photo competition by Burufly.com (the largest Social Travel Site in South East Asia)"

We can assume that by submitting your images, you also pass on the rights to them. Just think! You will my even get to see you image on Burufly.com, with no credit or compensation (although, one lucky participant may win a camera they had laying around).

Also, this opportunity was brought to our attention by "member" who registered for the sole purpose of promotion.
