I am concerned that I may be photographed?

The World Naked Bike Ride occurs in public places, where photography of the riders is not illegal. If you are concerned, you may choose to stay away from cameras in the Meeting Area, or wear some body paint or even a mask to protect your identity. Please be aware that we strongly encourage all forms of media coverage of our ride.

We will be enforcing our Photo Policy at the Meeting Area and the post ride celebration venue.

Riders are permitted to take selfies of themselves at any stage at the Meeting Area, but only if other riders do not appear in the photos. WNBR Melbourne organisers and crew will be monitoring this carefully.

Once on the actual ride, photography by our riders or by anyone else is permitted, the Photo Policy only applies at the Meeting Area and after ride celebration venue, before and after the ride.

For more information, refer to our Photo Policy, also in the FAQs.

Please note that we do not remove photos from our website, social media or other locations taken by our official photographers or ride organisers in accordance with our Photo Policy. The photos are necessary to document and promote the ride. If you really do not want your photo to appear, it is better that you do not turn up for the ride.
