Hi,

I read about your contest on the ravelry Designer group. Many of us were wondering who retains the rights to patterns that are submitted? What happens to the work of those who are not chosen?

Thank you for your response,

Ash

Thank you so much for your interest in our sock competition! I will make some modifications to the Ravelry post so that these questions are clearly answered.

The designers of the winning patterns will retain the rights to the patterns, although the Snow Leopard Trust will have the right to market the pattern on our website or in any other way that supports the cause of snow leopard conservation. The designers will always be credited whenever we use or promote the pattern.

The Snow Leopard Trust will have no rights to use any of the non-winning patterns that are submitted unless permission is obtained from the designer.

Warm wishes from the snow leopards :)

When will submitted socks be returned to the designers? Who is paying for return shipping? Or is the Snow Leopard Trust planning on keeping all submissions?
Thank you for any further answers,
Elise

Hi Elise, thanks for asking about the sock contest! We will be sending back the submitted socks to the designers at the end of October, and the Trust will cover the cost of the return shipping.
