Tate Britain has backed down in a row with photographers who had boycotted the launch of this year’s Turner Prize.
Photographers had refused to attend the art exhibition after being asked to sign a form banning any images or words being published which could “result in any adverse publicity”.
However, a Tate spokeswoman said on Monday that photographers would be allowed into the London launch without signing the contract.
She added the form would be reviewed.
The contract also gives the gallery permission to “copy, reproduce, record, store and disseminate” the photographer’s work without paying royalties.
Among the photographers who boycotted the event included staff working for the Evening Standard, Reuters and the Press Association.
