Children and photography

Parents and guardians;

Please note that official and non-official photos, any of which may be used in our publicity, will be taken on the day. If you have any objection to your child being photographed, please make this known to the appropriate photographer(s) at the time.

Similarly, if a photo containing your child appears on the website and you object, please contact the webmaster, describing the photo. Please make sure you add the email subject header 'Hertford Carnival'.

Photos and stories - your help required!

Help us capture the carnival for posterity! 

Email us any good photos you take on the day; we would love to add the best to the website. Original, good quality photos that you own (ie that haven't been sent in without someone else's permission) are best. In the past few years we have been sent some great photos from some local people (see archive for the used ones). All photos will be credited with their source.

You can also send us your comments and stories on this year’s carnival; a selection will be published on the website.

Email address is anna_schlenker@hotmail.com (add the subject header 'Hertford Carnival'), or tweet us at @HertCarnival.

If you have a lot of photos you would like to share, we can arrange sharing via another method (DVD, cloud etc) (if you are unfamiliar with these, we will of course talk you through them).

Then watch to see if you appear on the website!
