Most Pics Go Uncredited

More than 60% of images appearing in national newspapers do not include a picture credit, reports Amateur Photographer.

The survey carried out by BAPLA found that the Daily Telegraph and the Sunday Times published credits most often and were given the ‘Credit Where Its Due’ award at the BAPLA picture buyers fair.

Steven Brown, managing director of the event’s sponsor PA Photos, stressed the importance of crediting pictures to recognise the copyright owner.

Royles added: ‘The Credit Where Credit is Due campaign is specifically aimed at the newspaper industry but is part of a much wider industry campaign.’

What is EPUK?
