Save your files only with the the essay title as the file name. DO NOT start or include “WOLF essay competition” or any other such generic statement in the file name. We cannot easily sort out hundreds of files all called WOLF Essay Competition!

DO NOT use the theme title as the title of your essay. If you cannot be creative in your title, you will probably not get far in the competition.

Copyright for all works submitted to the Annual Competition (“The Competition”) remains with the author/s at all times. Anyone submitting work to The Competition represents and warrants that (i) s/he is the author and rightful owner and copyright holder of such work and has rights to submit such work, (ii) such work is original material, has not been copied, in whole or in part, from any other work as written in any language or medium, (iii) if previously published, produced or distributed, such work has the authorizations necessary for submission to this competition, and (iv) such work does not defame, and does not infringe or violate the right of privacy, right of publicity, copyright, trademark, service mark, trade secret, or any intellectual property, proprietary or other right(s) of any third party.

In submitting work to The Competition, the author/s and rightful owner and copyright holder is granting the Web of Life Foundation (“The Foundation”) a worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual license to reproduce, print, publish and otherwise publicize (collectively, “dissemination”) the work at The Foundation’s sole discretion in any publication, website and elsewhere. In all such dissemination of the work, The Foundation will give proper attribution to the author/s of the work.

If an author’s work has been selected for dissemination by The Foundation, The Foundation retains rights to reproduce, print, publish and otherwise publicize the work. The author may submit the work for publication elsewhere.
