Terms and Conditions

In the following Terms and Conditions, the Project shall refer to PictureTheWorld only. The Photo shall refer to any photo submitted to PictureTheWorld during its official operation. The Mosaic refers to the final composition, both physical and not, of all eligible photos, as provided for by PictureTheWorld.
