Hi, so true story here. This happened very recently.

Last semester I was photographed multiple times by a girl taking some photo classes at the same college I go to. She entered one of the photos she took of me into a contest online (without informing me before she did so).

I never signed a release and we never talked about this. So she won this contest last month, a $1000 prize. As the model in this photo what am I entitled to? I am not looking to go to a lawyer because I dont have the money, i just wanted to know what I should do so it is fair for me (In fact it was the portrait section of the contest, therefore I assume I should get a fair share)

Any help you guys could give me would be wonderful, you've helped me out tremendously on this forum, thank you all so much, and ask questions and ill do my best to answer them. Let the games begin!!!
