Complainant Name:
Vishal Vora

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Time Out

Complaint:

Vishal Vora, a photographer whose work had appeared in the magazine, was concerned that his name had been misspelled in a photo credit and complained to the Press Complaints Commission. The complainant had attempted to resolve his complaint locally and, while the editor had passed on the apologies of the staff member responsible for the error, he was not satisfied with the magazine's failure to publish a correction.

Resolution:

While the complainant was disappointed that the matter could not be resolved directly with the magazine, his complaint to the PCC was resolved when the magazine published the following apology on its letters page:

Apology

In TO 2056, on page 101, we spelled photographer Vishal Vora's name incorrectly. Please accept our sincere apologies, Vishal.
