When it comes to taking photos and videos at events, it is important to get permission to use people’s images for anything that will be made public. In the case of asylum seekers in particular it can be important for their case to not appear publicly, and of course taking pictures of children is a sensitive issue.

We recommend at any events where you will be taking photos or making videos to make this very clear to attendees, and you can make posters asking people to come and find you if they wish not to be pictured.
You can also create stickers for attendees who do not wish to be pictured – here is one design you might like to use

We have also given two different consent forms – one for children and one for adults, and you can amend them has you see fit.
