Melbourne: Major Australian media houses have decided to boycott photo coverage of the upcoming Test series against India starting on February 22 in Chennai in protest against the BCCI's decision to deny accreditation to a photo news agency.

NEWS Limited and AAP said they will not publish images and show videos from Australia's tour of India after the BCCI locked out Getty Images, which supplies images to four of the biggest media companies in Australia.

Getty Images provides images to major Australian publishers, including News Limited, Fairfax Media, APN News & Media and Seven West Media.
