Below is a working version of our photo and video policy. However, these guidelines are subject to change. A complete photo and video policy will be emailed to approved press badgeholders prior to Anime Expo. At no point should any footage taken at Anime Expo be sold for profit. Photography and video is permissible in the common areas of the LACC and in most panels.
You will be notified by the panel moderator or a posted sign if photo and/ or video are not allowed in that particular event. Please respect our attendees’ and guests’ wishes if they decline to be photographed or filmed. Failure to comply with this request can result in expulsion from Anime Expo.
Opening /Closing Ceremonies: Non-flash photography and video allowed throughout.
Masquerade: Non-flash photography and video allowed throughout.
Concerts: Subject to performers’ request.
AMV Contest: Absolutely no photography or video allowed.
