Yes, that is the case. In the past we usually use most of the photos once to accompany an HT article or on Facebook. Sometimes the winning pictures get used more than once. Thanks for asking…
“- Participation in the contest implies acceptance by the author that the

credit of the author.”
So basically HT will be entitled to use the photos whenever they wish? Effectively they will keep copyright of the photos even if the entrant does not win?
