Published April 24th, 2014

Three yrs. ago my beloved wife was diagnosed with bone cancer. This was like a roller coaster having this severe illness into our small family. Since then my wife have been in OR for more than 2 times with difficult operations in her spine. She is now a terminal patient and time will have to show for how long I have my beautiful wife.

At the point when she was diagnosed - I had to have a sanctuary away from illness - and because of my life long love for stories told through images I found that a place where photographers from around the world could donate some of their great work to benefit charity and aid. This was the first unstable steps to create the WPDWA.

Now more than 700 photographers from around the world have indicated that they will be a part of the WPDWA

400 already done donation in form of some of their great images - many from the 500px community

Copyrights - Donated pictures for WPDWA ...

Published April 2nd, 2012

Transfer of Copyrights rights is obviously a cause for hesitation among photographers who want to donate a picture to WPDWA.

I have therefore reconsidered the requirement for transfer of copyright rights in connection with donations of pictures to WDWA.

The photographers retain copyrights to all donated pictures, but during the period when WPDWA seek them sold through online auctions / online sales - do photographers do not put them up for sale elsewhere if they are displayed in other places eg. on your own website, facebook, other photo websites than on WPDWA must be linked to WPDWA as sales continue going through WPDWA.

The basic idea behind WPDWA - is to receive donations in the form of images and search them sold through online auctions, online sales - in favor of charity and relief organizations around the world.

There is therefore no doubt that it is WPDWA solely responsible for the sale of the donated images.

It is still possible to assign the copyrights of the donated i ...
