AP probe prompts Daily Telegraph adventure travel contest rule change
Organisers of the Daily Telegraph Adventure Travel Show photography competition have changed the terms and conditions of entry after Amateur Photographer (AP) magazine spotted a controversial clause.
Rules for entering the contest implied that organisers can use submissions ‘in any way that we want, and in any media’.
However, a few hours after we highlighted the troublesome wording, a spokeswoman told us: ‘Thanks for your help in identifying the issues with the competition rules. Certainly we want to make sure these are reasonable and fair for all concerned.’
She added: ‘We have taken advice from our legal department and as such have changed the terms and conditions.’
The rules will state: ‘In contributing to the Adventure Travel Show photography competition we may, from time to time, publish and otherwise use your image for event promotion with your permission. Your image will be credited where appropriate.’
The revised rules are due to appear on the competition website later today.
