APME joins protest of Beyonce tour photo restrictions


Perhaps you are aware that Beyonce has kicked off her latest tour in the UK.  That's not news but the photo restrictions for this production are news.

Her agency says there are no photo credentials for this show.   You will be allowed to download photos from every show provided by Beyonce's agency.  Some of our colleagues in the UK declined to download any images and coverage went without photos.

APME signed on a letter with other news organizations protesting the restrictions.  The letter from NPPA is attached.

If Beyonce is coming to your area beware they only want "flattering" coverage.
