This is an image grab.  Read the fine print of the rules.  They are asserting the right to sell, use, do any old thing they want with your image.  Forever, without compensating you.  Not just the winning image, but any image entered.  Don't fall for it.

That's pretty typical of photo contests like this.  It's good to be aware of it but that doesn't make it any less fun or the prizes any less cool.

No it just takes peoples images without compensating them.  There are contests that don't do this.  As a professional photographer I'm acutely aware of this.  If it's a winning image, fine the prize(s) are your compensation.  Otherwise if your shot is worthy of their use you should get paid.  Unfortunately the grocery store and mortgage company don't accept "exposure" for their goods and services.
