- Can I bring my camera to the rodeo or Frontier Nights events?
- Cheyenne Frontier Days will allow photography, videotaping and digital image capture of the rodeo for private and personal use, as long as this activity does not interfere with the ability of other spectators to view the rodeo and the photographer does not occupy seats he or she has not purchased.
- Any commercial use or distribution without the express written consent of Cheyenne Frontier Days is strictly prohibited. You may use photographs, videotape or digital images obtained from Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo solely for private or personal, non-commercial purposes only. Any other use, including for any commercial, issue advocacy or fundraising purposes, is strictly prohibited without our express prior written consent. Systematic retrieval of images from the rodeo, whether to create or compile, directly or indirectly, a collection or compilation is prohibited absent our express prior written consent.
- We will continue to support our artistsí and copyright requirements by prohibiting any sound, film or video tape reproductions of the night show performances without an agreement with the performers involved, and Cheyenne Frontier Days.
- Our goal has been and continues to be to prevent the unauthorized use of Cheyenne Frontier Days imagery for commercial use, profit generation or the promotion of organizations and agendas unrelated to Cheyenne Frontier Days. As a result, photography and videotaping for personal use is welcomed.
- Many contestants use private video of their performances to improve their performances and their technique. We have also heard from many fans who were disappointed with this policy. As a result, we will continue to work toward our stated goal of preventing inappropriate use, but we will allow personal photography and video taping of the rodeo as long as this activity does not interfere with the ability of other spectators to view the rodeo and the photographer does not occupy seats they have not purchased.
