Child Safeguarding Guidance for Journalists and Filmmakers

Make sure your coverage of events does not put children at risk of abuse. Report well and fulfil your responsibilities to mitigate the negative effects and maximise the positive opportunities for children before, during and after the event. In order to ‘do no harm’ please review the following advice for reporting on children. Whether you are a journalist, filmmaker or photographer this advice will support you to work with children in a safe and professional way.  Remember a child is defined as 0–18 years old by the United Nations.
