1st Stage – Participation phase
This is the stage for participation in the Frontiers contest
organized by Blipoint, which can be done by uploading an image. It
starts on 12/12/2018 and finishes on 12/03/2019. Only those users who
are registered on Blipoint will be able to participate. Each premium
user may upload up to a maximum of three (3) images and each free user
may upload up to a maximum of one (1) image. The technique to be used is
free, photographs, collage, painting, illustrations or mixed media
images can be presented. Only digital images with a minimum of 1500px on
the longest side will be accepted. It is recommended that they do not
exceed 1.5 MB and they should be in jpg format. Images that have
participated in previous Blipoint competitions will not be accepted. By
publishing your image, you automatically confirm that you own the
copyright and that your images are free from any right or claim of a
third party. You will retain all copyright and other rights you already
have in relation to the images you publish on Blipoint. When submitting,
publishing or displaying these contents, the authors of this call
authorize Punto y Línea 07 SL, a company registered in Spain, the legal
representative of the Blipoint web portal, in a non-exclusive manner,
the exercise of reproduction, distribution and public communication of
the finalists’ works, in the following terms: The right of reproduction:
for the sole purpose of making, postcards or posters, promotional press
inserts of the present call and publication in various diffusers on the
Internet, such as social networks, within the Blipoint web portal and
blog related events of photography and art, only and solely for the

II Stage: Voting phase
This stage runs from 12/03/2019 to 18/03/2019. Voting takes place
through the system of “likes” where Blipoint’s users can show their
preference. Through this first popular vote, the first selection filter
will be applied. The online voting phase does NOT determine the winner,
it is only used to preselect 100 images, from which our jury of
professionals will determine the winning photographs. Each user can
“like” each image only once. Fraudulent or abusive profiles whose
objective is the promotion of any image or images in particular will be
controlled. Blipoint, as the organizer of this contest, reserves the
right to, at any time, modify the conditions of the contest, including
the dates of the contest, its possible cancellation before the closing
date of the contest, whenever there is a justified cause, committing to
notify the new terms, conditions or, if applicable, the definitive
cancellation sufficiently in advance. In the event that Blipoint detects
that any participant in the contest is using any type of automated or
recurring method or process, or carrying out any type of fraudulent
conduct that disrupts the normal operation of the contest, Blipoint may
immediately withdraw said participant from the contest (Blipoint will
send an email informing him or her of the immediate expulsion from the
contest), leaving without effect the votes accumulated up to that moment
by said participant. In the event that Blipoint is the subject of any
claim, judicial or extrajudicial, initiated by third parties and based
on possible infringements of the intellectual property or image rights
of said third parties, derived from the use by Blipoint of the images
provided by the participant, this will assume all expenses, costs and
indemnities that may arise from such legal actions, responding to
Blipoint or to such third parties, as appropriate. In the event that
this competition is suspended due to a force majeure, Blipoint will be
exempt from any responsibility.
III Stage: Final phase
There will be a qualifying jury which will select the winning images
from among the 100 preselected ones. On 22/03/2019 the winners of the FRONTIERS Contest will be announced. The winner will be contacted by
email. At the end of the call, the winning images, along with the
profiles of the authors will be published on the contest history,
therefore, these authors should have their profiles updated. In
addition, the winners will be announced on the official contest website
and on the Blipoint Blog. The prizes will be shipped free of charge in
the territory of the Spanish Peninsula. If the shipment has to be made
outside the peninsula, the cost of this will be borne by the winner. No
prizes will be delivered to third persons, only to the author of the
winning image. Once announced, winners will have 30 working days to contact Blipoint so that shipment of the prizes can be arranged. We will contact the authors of the images selected for
the exhibition in order to acquire a high-resolution version of these,
which will subsequently be used for a one-time impression which will be
exposed at the exhibition. In the event the exhibitor wants to receive
his or her piece once the exhibition has culminated, this will be
shipped at the expense of the author.
