It is good practice to always ask permission before taking the picture or video.

The main rule is that consent must always be obtained from everyone who can be directly or indirectly identified in the images or film before they are published.

Unwanted publication can lead to liability for damages and criminal liability according to the Copyright Act.


1. Before a picture or film is published, consent must be obtained from everyone in the picture, and from their guardian if the children are under 15 years of age.

2. When obtaining consent to publish images and films, a consent form should be used. Only active consent can provide a basis for publishing images and films.

3. If a child does not want pictures or films to be published, they must override their parents' wish for publication.

4. Be aware of the situations in which photos or films are taken.

Care must be taken when taking photographs of scantily clad children.

Ballet dress or costume is not defined as lightly dressed. Moderation must be shown with the use of full names.
