Photographing and filming children

Parents and family members want to be able to save and share photos of their children being involved in sport and recreation.

The department promotes the taking of photographs and film in the sport and recreation setting when performed in an appropriate manner and for good reason. The department has developed a position statement that provides guidance to sport and recreation organisations.

The Play by the Rules website provides advice to taking images of children in the sport and recreation setting with specific mention to the law and strategies acquiring and displaying images.
