    My 9 yr old son started showing interest in photography when his grandfather bought him a digital camera. I think he will love the idea in taking part in a real photo competition.

    Be warned, people:

    "Entrants (and their respective parents and legal guardians) further hereby waive all moral rights in and to the photographs in favor of the Sponsor."

    For those unfamiliar with the term "moral rights" according to Betsy Rosenblatt of the Harvard Law School the term refers to "the ability of authors to control the eventual fate of their works." This can be interpreted to include the rights to receive licensing royalties.

    Why is there a lower age limit? It doesn't make sense to limit the lower limit of the age. My 4-year-old is an excellent photographer? He's won contests against other more experienced photographers. He also does all the photo processing in Lightroom too.
