Model Release


Just wanted to ask about the need for model releases during fairs, parades and in this case, I took photos of people during the Black Christ festival in Panama. The devotees are on a spiritual journey, travelling for miles on the road, tourists and travelers photograph them.

There are so many people on this journey. I wanted to know if I can put some of these into the contest, also, what can be done, when it is not "possible" to stop the activity for a model release.

Thank you so much for your help.

  Here you go

Every host of a contest will have similar terms to protect themselves ranging from personal photos that amateurs take and want to enter into a state fair contest to somebody entering in photo they stole from a professional.
