Default Just to clarify

I need it to be clear that these people are not using any of my work in the promos and works by the artists that have been contracted have been credited. It is the work of the contestants that is almost always being used without credits. They are not misrepresenting anything either but they are, I believe, short-changing the artists.

As Rachel pointed out, it is the prospect of exposure that is touted by producers of competitions to lure entrants but what value is that exposure when the work is not credited. Surely if the piece is good enough to use in promo material, the artist should receive acknowledgement. Only a handful of the many, many photos on their website have a proper credit.

Considering that the event's regular emails and newsletters go out to many people with direct interests in, crediting the artists could result in genuine work offers and other opportunities.
Every-one should watch their drawers!
