Photography and Media Questions

  • I heard that I'm not allowed to film home videos at the convention. Is that true?
  • I don't want my picture taken at all. How can I avoid it?
  • Can I put video that I took from the convention up on my web page?
  • I am a member of the media and I would like to report on this interesting convention in my magazine/TV show/newspaper/blog/radio show/etc. May I do so and how do I get a press pass?
  • I am a student and wish to use Anthrocon as the basis of my film/media/radio project. May I do so?
  • I would like to make a documentary about Furries and would like to film/interview/otherwise involve Anthrocon. What do I need to to?
  • I heard that I'm not allowed to film home videos at the convention. Is that true?
  • Of course not. You are welcome to take photographs and video for personal use. Just remember that video or audio footage from Anthrocon cannot be broadcast without the permission of Anthrocon, Inc.

  • I don't want my picture taken at all. How can I avoid it?
  • If you explicitly ask someone not to take your picture, the photographer should refrain from doing so; however, please be aware that many photographs are taken in the common areas of the convention, and that video footage for Anthrocon's highlights tape will be recorded at various times and locations. We will not record any footage in any private hotel rooms or in any other space where an Anthrocon member has a reasonable expectation of privacy, unless permission is obtained from those present.

  • Can I put video that I took from the convention up on my web page?
  • Incidental video of you at the convention is perfectly fine. However, film of Anthrocon events and programs are not since this constitutes "rebroadcast."

    As stated before, still images may be placed on web pages.

  • I am a member of the media and I would like to report on this interesting convention in my magazine/TV show/newspaper/blog/radio show/etc. May I do so and how do I get a press pass?
  • Requests for press credentials to the convention should be made in writing to the convention at the address made below. Your request should give a summary of the work you wish to present as well as information on previous work you have done.

    You should receive a response from our organization within a few business days after that point. If you include an email address or fax number in your request, we can respond via those methods. We're sorry, but due to the volume of work that hits us, no media request will be entertained less than 2 months prior to the convention.

    Additionally as a reminder, that without a press pass approved by the convention you will be escorted from the convention space and forfeit any membership you may have purchased to enter the convention.

    Unfortunately, in the past, we have had trouble with organizations filming without permission. As this can cause a disruption with the scheduling and timbre of our convention, we take a dim view of this.

    As a reminder: Anthrocon is a private organization and event. It is not considered a public venue. Usage of any footage filmed at Anthrocon or using the name of Anthrocon without our prior approval and permission is a violation of law.

    We provide a method of properly obtaining press credentials. Please use it.

  • I am a student and wish to use Anthrocon as the basis of my film/media/radio project. May I do so?
  • Please follow the same procedures listed above in contacting Anthrocon in writing for permission. Again, a summary of your project and examples of past work help greatly. Also, please let us know if as a student will you hold copyright to your work or will it be assigned to your educational institution or employer.

  • I would like to make a documentary about Furries and would like to film/interview/otherwise involve Anthrocon. What do I need to to?
  • Because any documentary material taken from Anthrocon would be a reflection on the organization as a business, Anthrocon Inc. naturally has a vested interest in ensuring that the finished production (1) is in agreement with the organization's goals of promoting Furry Fandom, and (2) does not lead to disparagement of our servicemark. To that end, Anthrocon will permit documentaries to be filmed only if the documentarian agrees to grant Anthrocon, Inc. the right to review the entire final production, and agrees not to release any portion of the project prior to our review and authorization. Anthrocon reserves the right to refuse permission for the use of its name and/or any footage filmed at its event(s) if in the sole opinion of its representatives the production disparages the organization. If you are planning a documentary and agree to those terms, then please feel free to contact us.
