Unseen Britain amends Guardian rights rules
December 20, 2007
Organisers of the Unseen Britain photography competition have revised the terms of entry after complaints that the rules implied entries may be published outside the sphere of the competition.
As we reported last week, the original terms and conditions suggested that The Guardian newspaper had licence to publish entries, but did not limit this to publication only in relation to the competition.
Internet-based group, the Editorial Photographers United Kingdom & Ireland described the rules as ?rights-grabbing?.
Commenting on the controversial clause a spokesman for the organisers told us this week: ?Thank you for bringing this to our attention ? this has now been amended.?
A Sony Alpha 700 digital SLR camera is up for grabs to the winner of the contest which challenges photo enthusiasts to produce eye-catching images of Britain.
