There’s always fine print, right? There isn’t much, but here it is.

This contest is open to anyone in the world, except where prohibited by law. The prizes must be accepted as awarded. There is no cash value. Shipping is included to anywhere in the world, but any local taxes or import duties are the responsibility of the winner. (The prizes awarded will be obtained through retail channels and are not provided by either Nikon or Canon, who are in no way involved in this promotion).

Any purchases made fromOur Online StorebetweenJanuary 1, 2008 and April 30, 2008will be eligible.

And finally, to satisfy the law in some countries – no purchase is necessary. You will be entered into the competition by simply registering your name in our store. But, if you do this, while within the letter of the law you are of course defeating the purpose of the whole exercise. You must decide if that’s really what you want to do.
