(c) agree that the uses referred to at Clauses 11(a) and 11(b) above may include publishing, displaying or otherwise reproducing the images (whether on the internet, in the “Xclusive Photo Mag” Magazine, in exhibitions or otherwise) provided such use is for the purposes of promoting the magazine or future competitions only; images might have a partial cropping to fit the available spaces and/or technical specifities of the publications; images may also have some colours and/or tonalities variations due to the conversion in CMYK for the printed publication and
