Group Description

The spirit is in the air, and we want to know what it looks like where you are!

The Summer Games are more than what happens in the London stadiums, it's a global cultural phenomenon. We believe that what happens in the arena is just as important as what happens outside the arena, behind the scenes. Whether it's a photo of a crowded pub in London or a living room staged for viewing, we want to know what the experience is like where you are.

We invite you to add your photos related to the Games in London, U.K., which can include images of, but are not limited to:

- Scenes surrounding the sports venues
- Preparation for the Games
- Related events in your hometown

We will not accept submissions of photos taken inside the Games or from the action at the Games.

Yahoo! editors will review all submissions in this group for publication in the webpages of Yahoo! Inc. By adding your original photos into the pool of this group, you are granting permission for Yahoo! to publish your submitted photos. The terms in the Group Rules govern Yahoo!'s use of your photo(s) on a non-exclusive basis; you still retain the rights to your submitted photos. Any submissions to this group that the editors deem unacceptable will be removed from the group.

Finally, please note that The International Olympic Committee (IOC) does not sponsor or endorse this group. Olympic, Olympiad, the Olympic rings, Faster Higher Stronger, Citius Altius Fortius and related marks are owned by the International Olympics Committee, the London Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games, or their related entities. This group is neither endorsed by nor affiliated with any of these entities.

This is a great opportunity to share your photos with the Yahoo! audience and promote your photographic talent.

Your contribution is much appreciated!

7. When your photos are displayed on Yahoo! Services, Yahoo! will include an attribution crediting you and, where possible, include a link to your photo on Flickr.

8. You consent to allow Yahoo! to contact you through Flickr Mail regarding any inquiry Yahoo! might have related to your submission to the Group.

9. Yahoo! shall not be obliged to display photos you submit and shall not be liable for any entrant’s loss of publicity or enhancement of reputation. Yahoo! reserves the right to cancel the Group if deemed necessary at any time and for any reason.

10. This agreement shall, for all purposes, be governed by and interpreted and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You agree to and will hereby submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the State and federal courts located within the county of Santa Clara, California.
