COMMERCIAL: This is a non-profit Facebook community group. We will accept donations to help manage the group. Funds will go towards prizes, giveaways and shipping fees for competition winners. To make a donation please contact one of the admins. We also welcome approaches from retailers or manufacturers for Fujifilm related goods as part of a prize/marketing coordinated approach. It is recommended that retailers, manufacturers or sponsored photographers or ambassadors do not badmouth opposition products. Ambassadors/Sponsored photographers should note their affiliation when responding to posts about products. "In the interests of transparency, I'm a X ambassador but I really..."
PERSONAL BLOGS/WEBSITES: Users are welcome to post links to personal blogs or websites provided they are non-commercial. Please avoid excessive posts to personal links (more than once a day or twice a week)
COMMERCIAL LINKS BY NON-AFFILIATED PHOTOGRAPHERS: Commercial (non-retailer) links to new products relating to Fujifilm (Fujifilm soft shutters, Fujifilm specific flashes/triggers etc as an example) are welcome provided the photographer has no commercial affiliation, is not receiving compensation for the posting of links, or where it is in response to a request for such information from another member. I.e. "where can I buy an X". If in doubt, please contact the admins.
STORE DISCOUNTS: Members are allowed to post any store related discounts provided they have no affiliation with the store. I.e. "X has 20% of ONA Bags."

SALE ITEMS: Members are free to post sale items on the group via the ‘Sell Something’ option, however, all items posted for sale in this group MUST apply a discounted members rate of 5% off the total advertised price, if you have posted the same item for sale elsewhere it is expected that the advertised price on this page is reduced, the seller must mention this in the description. Members found in breach of this will have their ad post taken down.
COMPETITIONS: All competitions will be created and posted as Events on the group page, this allows us to reach and invite all members and to ensure everyone gets a chance to participate in all competitions held within the group. Rules and criteria of the competitions will be in the main description of the competition being held. Most competitions will come with prizes and giveaways to winners and runners up.
