As photography filming and recording may be carried out at the venue from time to time, by attending Kidtropolis ticket holders consent to being included in such films, photographs and recordings and the use, reproduction, storage, distribution and broadcasting of such films, photographs and recordings (including any copies made) without payment.

Kidtropolis is a vibrant event which offers a variety of photography opportunities. Taking photographs is encouraged- no special permission is needed to bring a camera to the event. The event, venue, and attendees all have expectations, so please note the following rules that apply to everyone at Kidtropolis:

– Photography is permitted in all public areas of the show unless signs or staff indicate otherwise.

– Outside of organised activities on stages, exhibitor stands, and signings permission must be sought from the subject(s) of a photograph before beginning to take photographs; the photographer must also oblige if the subject requests to see the photograph taken.

– It is unacceptable to take or attempt to take photos deliberately geared towards compromising common decency or the dignity of the subject, for example contriving the cameras position to shoot up a skirt or kilt.

– Any equipment used must be held by the photographer. Free standing equipment or additional equipment held by other people e.g. lights and flashes is not permitted, unless part of a booked trading or exhibiting space. This equally applies to people with a press pass; a press pass does not grant permission to set up a studio.

– Use of power sockets requires the permission of the event. Venues further require permission to be sought from them if wanting to use power sockets within a venue but outside of the event.
