Photography and recording

The recording of video and audio is not permitted by attendees within the auditorium. This includes the use of portable digital equipment such as digital cameras, MP3 recorders and camera phones.  This represents a breach of College copyright. Photos are permitted but we ask that attendees do not disturb the speaker or others in the audience and do not use flash.

On occasion a photographer will be commissioned by the RCOG to take photographs at some events. These photographs may be included in the College's educational, promotional and corporate publications and on its website. They may also be circulated in the media and be made available to other interested parties. If you have any questions, please contact a member of staff at the registration desk.
