In early 2017 the data protection rules on publishing pictures of events were changed. It meant that ANY person seen in the picture/pictures must give permission for their image to be in the public view, with over 1400 visitors + 250 staff to ask it would take too long to sort & cross check whether the person had yes or no to being on the show web pages.
To be on the safe side we have not used a show photographer in 2017 & 2018, we are looking at ways of including this request for permission to use images within the terms & conditions of entry to the event.
