Thank you for your question. Are the tourists submitting their own pictures that they've taken or will you (or someone else) be taking the pictures?
The tourists will be submitting photos they have taken.
OK-- I'll be just a minute.
Ideally you'll want two separate agreements. For the tourists, you'll want a royalty free licensing agreement--assuming that you're not paying for the photos. I can't vouch for the completeness of this document, but the link below will give you an idea of the type of agreement you're going to want:http://www.photoshelter.com/support/license#rf
And the establishment? I have been told that I do not have to get any release from them since people take pictures there all day everyday and their name is XXXXX XXXXX photos. Correct?
For the Cafe you'll want a tradeXXXXX XXXXXcensing agreement allowing you the rights to use their name and any other trademarks they may own. Something along these lines would be in the right direction: http://www.sample-agreements.net/2010/10/trademark-license-agreement.html
That's to be on the safe side.
