Photography Policy

We’ll be taking pictures at NZGDC22

Conference photography helps us promote NZGDC in future years and provides many attendees with lasting memories of the event, so we will have photographers and videographers on site during the course of the event.

Here’s what it means for you as a conference attendee:

These photos and videos may be used for the following purposes:

We may ask for further details to help us identify you. Please note that while we will do our best to remove already published imagery/video, we will not always be able to do so (e.g. printed materials, items published by third parties, etc).
