Taking images

Every day, in sporting venues around the country, people are taking and using photos and videos. Whether it’s a parent videoing their child or a professional photographer taking photos for a club, it’s important for clubs to understand how photos and videos can be taken and used.

What club committees can do

There are 8 key steps club committees should follow to create safe and fair clubs. Specifically, when it comes to taking images consider:

  • Understand the laws – Play by the Rules provides some guidance for sport clubs 
  • Be familiar with the existing policies your sport likely has in this area and promote them often to members eg. Technology use policy, Member Protection Policy and/or Codes of Conduct. These are generally set by your national or state peak body.
