It goes without saying that this forum gets free use, but that's no different to when we post our images for the enjoyment of each other anyway.
No, the only imposition is the use of the pictures in the book. The book is not being sold. In fact I believe that the book will only be printed for entrants whose images are featured in it.

If Olympus like your photos and wish to use them for other projects then that's a separate matter.
