The Entrant grants the College the right to use and to reproduce and alter or change their submission in perpetuity, providing that this use is strictly in relation to the College and that the Entrant is credited as the Artist wherever the submission is used. This applies across all digital and print media.
The Entrant grants the College permission to sell copies of the submission in the form of Christmas Cards (or Greetings Cards) only at a rate that will cover the cost of printing physical copies and administration of any production process or sales.
