Photo credit will be included in any social media or website post. Such usage will never be for sale or profit and strictly used to announce winners and promote the club. The club will watermark your photos before posting online to provide photo attribution and discourage unauthorized use. The watermark will include the photo title and a copyright statement.

The club participates in recruiting and public outreach programs such as the Grand Theatre Artwalks and photo submissions may be displayed in a slideshow demonstration of submitted images. The Club holds contests with photo prizes and submitted photo winners will be sent to a third-party service provider for printing photo prizes. Your photo submissions are stored in Microsoft Teams and saved to the Microsoft cloud. Permission to the team and files stored in the team is limited to the current board members of the Tracy Camera Club. No other use of submitted photos is permitted without written permission.
