EPUK Editorial Photographers United Kingdom and Ireland. The private mailing list and public resource for editorial photographers

Christmas cancelled at Trinity Mirror

Here’s a tale which will tug the heartstrings. Trinity Mirror, the UK’s biggest newspaper group whose profits increased by over 20% last year to £253million, has told staff on its five national and 240 regional newspapers that it cannot afford to pay for Christmas parties.

So this Christmas, think of those less fortunate that yourselves, such as Sly Bailey, whose £1million-plus-benefits a year package clearly doesn’t even cover a box of crackers. Rumours that senior journalists on the group’s weekly titles who earn £14,000 a year are considering a whip-round so that Ms Bailey can experience some Christmas joy this year are as yet unconfirmed.

What is EPUK?

EPUK is an email group for professional editorial photographers who want to talk business. We don’t do techie stuff or in-crowd gossip. We don’t talk cameras or computers. What we talk about are the nuts and bolts of being in business - like copyright, licensing, fees and insurance.
