Its been around a little while AIPP has already contacted Tennis Australia over the issue, it is not a good opportunity for anyone what they require is well beyond what would be reasonable for an amateur photographer, its in essence a professional photographer positions without any support, financial assistance, insurance nor any rights. As I understand Tennis Australia has withdrawn the positions, IMHO as a community group we should never place ourselves in a position of promoting the abuse of community time by corporations especially ones with the capacity to pay market rates for commercial work.
