A Branch or Centre may wish to commission a professional photographer at their events. Alternatively, parents or spectators may wish to photograph or video at an event. Either way, precautions should be taken to ensure that those individuals have permission to take photographs of members, and that they have clearance to work with children.
Therefore photographers should be known to the District Commissioner / Centre Proprietor or event organiser before they are allowed to take photographs at Pony Club events. Professional photographers, parents and spectators intending to take pictures should also be asked to register at the event before they are allowed to photograph or video.
The DC, Centre Proprietor or event organiser may also wish to carry out a disclosure check on photographers prior to the event starting to ensure they have clearance to work with or around children. Some form of identification should be worn at all times whilst in attendance at the event so that people are aware who they are and what they are doing.
For more information, please refer to the ‘Photographs at Events’ policy.
