Child Protection
 
Compliance
Background checks are carried out on all of our photographers and during the event they will display a Spotlight Photography ID card, confirming they have undergone these checks. However, we are happy for organisers to carry out their own Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks (previously 'CRB' criminal record check), if they feel it's necessary.
 
Child Protection
Some of the best and most memorable photographs we take are those of children. However, we recognise that in today's media driven world, where technology has broken down many barriers of data security, we must exercise a sufficient degree of care and diligence to ensure the safety of the children we photograph, without destroying the joy and wonderment that photos of children create. If you have any concerns about Spotlight Photography photographing children under the age of 18 at your event, or the images of children being displayed on the website, please inform us immediately.

Event photographs can be password protected on request, to ensure only authorised persons can view the images on the website. No names or details of the children will be shown on the website, ensuring that the identity of the child is never revealed.
 
Child Protection At Your Event - Putting Minds At Rest
Background checks are carried out on all of our photographers and during the event they will display a Spotlight Photography ID card, confirming they have undergone these checks. However, we are happy for organisers to carry out their own Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks (previously CRB) , if they feel it's necessary.
 
Working in accordance with guidelines provided by the NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit, Spotlight Photography will not take photographs of children without supervised access or in one-to-one situations, without a witness present.

If you book Spotlight Photography far enough in advance, it may also be a good idea for the organiser to inform competitors and parents that a photographer will be present at the event, perhaps including a 'consent to photograph' form with entry forms. If not, perhaps ask them to sign a consent form on arrival.
