From: Editorial Photo UK
Subject: Red Bull
We see that in this week’s Press Gazette story concerning the Red Bull promotion that you accuse us of being “scared” and that we have denied you access to our web site.
Both these allegations are completely false.
The Red Bull Photofiles competition has been subject to considerable private and public criticism from professional photographers “elsewhere” as you have put it, but strangely enough not in the BJP.
You appear to believe that we have unfairly prevented you from defending the BJP’s position, while also claiming to have put all sides of the story to your readers. This despite the fact that you have not actually published any feedback received from photographers. Perhaps it has been too negative?
To prove that we are neither scared nor deny you access we are happy to offer you the opportunity of putting your case on the EPUK web site for our readers to see. In return we will provide you with an article for publication in the BJP presenting the professional photographers’ case against the Red Bull contest and the BJP’s promotion of it.
We propose that both articles be published unedited, and that they run without comment and are of equal length.
Shall we say a thousand words at dawn?
Please don’t disappoint us.
