Artists are being exploited by
government agencies and busi-
nesses using competitions to
avoid paying for work, say industry
Campaigns such as the recent
Tourism Australia marketing
push, in which people were asked
to submit photos of their favourite
places in Australia, ask those
entering to sign away their rights to
Executive director of the National
Association for Visual Arts Tamara
Winikoff said this arrangement
"It demeans artists as profes-
sionals because it puts no value on
the time and effort going into the
product," she said.
"But besides not paying artists,
Tourism Australia has also required
artists waive their moral rights,
which means anything can be done
to the work. It doesn t have to be
attributed and can even be used in a
way which is disadvantageous to the
Tourism Australia said its
campaign was not intended for
"This campaign has a specific
purpose -- to engage Australians
directly in the promotion of their
country," said a spokesperson.
The government-funded agency
said the competition was not about
building an image library, although
the terms and conditions mean it
will be able to reuse the images.
Freelance photographer Sven
Kovac is suspicious of competitions.
"I d be pretty selective in what
photo competitions I would enter
because to win you have to enter one
of your best photos and then you
lose your rights to that photo," he
said. "For them to go and buy that
many stock images would cost way
more than any cash prize that could
be on offer."
Tourism Australia made a change
to the original terms and conditions
of its competition after receiving
complaints. It said this struck
the right balance between
its interests and those of the
entrants, but Ms Winikoff said
the change didn t deal with key
Some artists say competi-
tions can be beneficial.
Jonathon van der Knaap has
won the chance to be published
in Rolling Stone, with a
photo credit, after entering a
competition run by Corona.
"I wasn t really going to use
the image for anything else. I
just took it at a gig and used it
because it fitted the criteria.
Competitions are a great way for
emerging photographers to get their
work out there," he said.
FruChocs recently ran a competi-
tion asking graphic artists to design
images to be printed on T-shirts.
Caitlin Milne was announced as the
winner last week. She won $1000
and a year s supply of FruChocs
-- considerably less than FruChocs
would have paid to have the design
Robern Menz s CEO Phil Sims,
whose company produces FruChocs,
said the competition was planned to
cater to artists needs and promote
the product, not to make money.
"We re not in the business of
selling T-shirts," he said. "We saw
this as a positive thing for brand
exposure and a good way of giving
young artists the opportunity to
profile some of their work."
Mr Sims said the conditions of the
competition protected the artist and
meant the winning design would
be used only "in the spirit of the
Photo contests exposed
He met this week with shadow
mining minister Mitch Williams
in a bid to secure support for
the Greens mining proposals.
But while Mr Williams admitted
the Liberals were split over the
Arkaroola issue, he said he would
recommend they vote against Mr
Parnell s amendment.
"I don t think the Act should
say we don t mine here or there,"
he said. "It should set an environ-
mental bar and then it is up to the
company to prove it can meet those
"I think it s silly to say the
Arkaroola wilderness area should
be treated differently to other
Mr Parnell said his Arkaroola
proposal was simpler and better
than the complicated system of

zones proposed in the State
Government s Seeking a Balance
report for the Flinders Ranges.
Despite the public consultation
period for the report closing at the
end of January, the Department of
Primary Industries and Resources
said this week it was still consider-
ing the 450 submissions and could
give no indication when it would
release a response.
Politicians and industry sources
suspect the document may be
dumped after criticism from
environmentalists and resources
"I don t think that report was
founded on good science, but on a
political outcome," Mr Williams
The SA Chamber of Mines
and Energy (SACOME) said the
proposed zones were fundamen-
tally flawed, with some allowing
low-impact exploration but not
high-impact work such as drilling.
"There is no point in allowing
low-impact exploration activities
if you are not going to allow the
development of the project," said
chief executive Jason Kuchel.
"SACOME believes the existing
regulations are sufficient to
manage mining activities in the
Northern Flinders Ranges."
Mr Parnell said the report did
not "seek a balance".
"It is rubbish -- it proposes
allowing mining in some of the
most iconic parts of the wilder-
ness," he said.
While the political debate rages,
Marg Sprigg is simply hoping
exploration and mining in the
sanctuary will be outlawed once
and for all.
"We will be continuing the
fight against it and so will all our
