Terms for Users Contributions

These terms establish the conditions that users accept when contributing content to the Subtitle-a-thon website, EUscreen.eu and Europeana.eu. Under these terms:

  1. Subtitles should be understood as written captions to audiovisual content that translate and/or transcribe the dialogue or narrative.
  2. According to the Terms for User Contributions for the Subtitle-a-thon.eu website, when a User provides subtitles on audiovisual clips during online or physical subtitle-a-thons, she/he irrevocably accepts not to claim any copyright or neighbouring right that might arise as a result of her/his act of subtitling. Irrespective of this, the organisers will make best efforts to attribute the contribution to the User. The resulting subtitling will be labelled with the copyright statement applied to the content it subtitles and may be reused on the EUscreen.eu and Europeana.eu websites.
  3. By creating an account on the Subtitle-a-thon website, the User automatically indicates acceptance of these terms and conditions. If you do not agree with these policies, please do not contribute subtitles to the Subtitle-a-thon website.

Users' contributions delivered during the Europeana XX: Subtitle-a-thon Challenges will be rewarded with certificates issued for all the participants of the events by their local hosts (FINA, NISV, LUCE, DFF). On top of that, the local hosts will award with online gift cards the top three subtitlers of each subtitle-a-thon event based on the amount and quality of the subtitles. The names of the winners will be announced on the event page within 5 weekdays.
