RPS = Ridiculous Promotional Suicide?Written by David White
Let’s all help South West Tourism create a free advertising campaign and picture library shall we? With the backing of the Royal Photographic Society.
NO, let’s not.
Whatever gentrified muppet within the RPS thought this was a good idea needs their head looking at. If it can be found that far up.
Hang on…I may have it all wrong…it says on the blurb that “Your contribution is not just about giving, because in return there is the opportunity to develop new skills in capturing images of genres you may never have considered”
Any and all new explanations for the RPS acronym accepted here.
Here’s a few just in (to my head):
Right Piss Snatch?
Royal Poor Show?
Rights Plucking Shysters?
Please share yours. Acronyms that is, not pictures for this Rancid Professional Sideshow.
It doesn’t look like the members are happy about it either – duh – first comment I find on their own forum:
This mad scam is aimed at acquiring photographs free of charge for the South West Tourism. Not only do they not want to pay any money but the don’t even guarantee the photographer will be credited. The even demand rights to sub licence the images to third parties!
