Apple updated their “Shot on iPhone” contest announcement with the following:
Apple believes strongly that artists should be compensated for
their work. Photographers who shoot the final 10 winning photos
will receive a licensing fee for use of such photos on billboards
and other Apple marketing channels.
There we go.
Update: Om Malik:
From what I am hearing from within Apple, the plan was to pay a
licensing fee and not call it a prize. That is an argument I buy!
They’ve been paying licensing fees for “Shot on iPhone” photos all along, so this passes the sniff test.
