The organisers would like to bring the regulation on photography and filming to the attention of exhibitors, trade stands, press and visitors.
It is a condition of all those attending the event that no filming or another form of recording may be taken or made at the venue without express written permission of the organisers.
The taking of photographs in the show venue for sale or reward is strictly prohibited except without the written permission of the organisers.
Press accredited photographers are provided with permission to take photographs for use in Newspapers, magazines, and internet sites – this is for news purposes only. There is no objection the general public taking photographs of general views of the show, provided that these are for private use. Specific dogs may be photographed only with the approval of the exhibitor.
No photography or filming is permitted inside the breed judging rings whilst judging is actually taking place. However, judges may allow it to happen at the end of classes or after the challenge certificate is awarded.
Filming and flash photography is allowed from outside the rings at all times unless the operation of the camera is actually affecting exhibits. However, if a powerful flash is being used or it is clear that exhibits are being affected, a ring steward or the judge is empowered to stop the person concerned.
