Filming and photography at Nowhere
Lots of people bring cameras to Nowhere. It’s a unique and visually stimulating experience, and it’s natural to want to record it. Please be respectful when taking photos, ask permission, and be aware that the beauty and freedom of Nowhere may feel very different when plastered across Facebook to be witnessed by your mum and boss.
If you’re taking photos for your own use, please respect each other and our community.
Nowhere is a PRIVATE EVENT and all rights regarding imagery, sound or art are reserved. Use of any image or sound recorded at Nowhere, be it digital, analogue or still camera equipment, is subject to written permission from Nowhere. All written permissions will be limited to the particular project described, and may be subject to restrictions.
For written approval, email
If a participant asks you to stop filming, you must stop immediately or face being escorted from the festival.
The copyright of any design, written work, artwork or performance is owned by the person or group of people who created it. You must ask permission before recording, filming or photographing artwork or performances and get signed model releases from all appropriate parties. You may not use any sounds or images of such designs, artworks or performances without a signed release or license from the creator(s) and Nowhere.
Participant rights and responsibilities
- You have the right to ask someone to stop taking a picture of you, recording your image or recording your voice. However, please keep in mind the nature of radical self-expression, and that capturing expression is a form of self-expression.

- If a photographer or videographer plans to use your image or images of your artwork for commercial purposes, you can allow them to do so by signing a model release or license form. In certain circumstances, the publishing of images may not require a signed model release (eg news and some editorial articles). The use of such material is still subject to approval by Nowhere.
- If someone is using a camera or recording device of any kind disrespectfully, point them out to a crew member.
Artist rights and responsibilities
- You have the right to protect the sound or image of your artwork or performance.
- You have the right to ask someone to stop taking images of your art or performance or an audio recording if you don't approve.
- You have the right to be credited for authorship of your artwork in any commercial use of your work, and perhaps to receive a payment.
