I am writing about this not because I think the contest is noteworthy due to wondrous prizes, but for the sheer irony of the issues it raises.
Over the years I have lived in the docklands area, I have on many occasions been stopped from taking photos either on the DLR stations, or within the Canary Wharf estate.
Although the Canary Wharf estate management office assures me that, despite the actions of their security guards, my photography is fine, I have never had a reply from the DLR about their official policy.
Flicking through one of the free rags given out in the area, I notice a photo competition.
The terms are simply delicious – they want photos taken from DLR trains or on their stations.
Yes – there we have it! The next time I am stopped from taking photos on the DLR for security or privacy reasons, I shall inform the person that I am entering a competition run by their own company.
Anyhow – more details here.
