We do credit the author, cause you can't submit to the Flickr Big Bend Photo Contest, unless you have a Flickr username. 

The line that we have the right to redistribute you photo is so that we may post it showing the winners of the contest on our site.  We, in no way, transfer the copyright over to us.  We just have permission to post your photograph as the winning photo.

The author remains as the owner and still has complete copyright.

To me it is clear that "Steve sitting on the south rim" is WAY better than the other entries:

I'm not at all biased; despite the fact that I took the pic of my buddy on an overnight to the rim in June of '09; and that I REALLY want you to vote for my pic so I can claim one of these awesome prizes and have a great excuse to go back to the Bend.

A few other pics from that epic trip that I haven't shared here before:
