Congrats Ideo,knew it would be picked.Will catch it at half past.

Liveforephotos it's shown at the end of the weather,not used as a backdrop and it's a privilege more than anything to get it shown.

No you don't get any payment for it, but a great sense of pride knowing that it's your photo he's showing on telly! At the end of the weather show he usually shows 3 photos submitted by viewers and just says who sent it in and where it was taken. Made my day really!

Frankly, it is no privilege to give away your work for free, so that TV3 can have nice images as a backdrop for their weather forecast. It is that mindset that allows the cheap bastards to exploit keen photographers. Call me an old cynic but 30 seconds of public exposure does not put bread on the table.

And now,they are bringing out a book of these images? Are they selling this book? Will they pay the photographers whose work is to be used in the book? If not, it is the sweetest con I have seen yet.

the book is to be sold with all profits for charity, Im happy to give my photo to them knowing that as a beginner in this subject that its always gonna be a in a book for me to say "that was my first published photo".,

@ OP - forgive the apparent laziness but where did you submit the shot to?

No problem,

Just sent it to martin.king@tv3.ie

Sent a Hi-Res image and a little blurb of info. Didn't get an email back to say it would be used but that's understanding given the amount of submissions he probably receives
