Hey everybody,
Just wondering if anyone has entered the photo comp at http://www.picture.com? If not, don't bother! I just got a letter saying I'm a semi-finalist and blah blah blah but something about the letter just seemed a bit strange. They go on about wanting to publish your photo in a book they're making and if you want a copy it's about $80 US!!!! Anyways I did a search and found all sorts of stories from people who had even ordered the book (stupidly) and never received it. Apparently they don't put your photo in unless you buy one and everyone seems to think there has never been a winner of any of the comps.... Dissapointing!

They are a SCAM!

They publish ANYTHING.. really. Go ahead and submit your worst shot, they will say it's getting published. Why? Because they want to sell you those books!

Do a search for Picture.com. You will come up with forums and posts detailing what a scam these guys are.

Hehe thanks Mayhem... As you can see above I've done what you suggested already and you're totally right! Anyways was curious more than anything as to whether anyone on this forum knew about it... Obviously I'm not sending back the copyright declaration so I'm hoping they wont publish my photo. If I found out they had I'd be taking legal action for sure!
