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 other 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 with the
written permission of the Organisers. Press accredited photographers are provided
with permission to take photographs ONLY for use in newspapers, magazines and
internet sites – this is for news purposes only. There is no objection to 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 in 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 unit is used or it is clear that exhibits are being
affected, a ring steward or the judge is empowered to stop the person concerned.
