MCG Filming and Photography Requests

MCG intellectual property
The MCG is an internationally recognised venue and brand that also holds National Heritage Listing status.

It is the responsibility of the MCC to preserve the integrity of the ground and control the use of MCG, MCC and National Sports Museum (NSM) intellectual property including brands and imagery.

Permission to film/take photos at the Melbourne Cricket Ground
All requests to film on site must gain prior approval from the MCC at least two weeks prior to the requested date of venue access.

Requests will be considered according to:
    - the type of filming or photography proposed
    - the potential impact on venue operations 
    - the proposed purpose or use of the footage/imagery and any other MCG, MCG or NSM intellectual property
    - any OH&S implications.

Fee schedule for filming and photo shoot applications
All requests to film must be made by filling out the application form (available below) at least three weeks prior to the requested filming date.

The following elements are considered by the MCC when determining fees for commercial filming or photography.

Wherever possible, the MCC will work to facilitate film productions and balance the budgetary framework of the project with the operational and underlying commercial imperatives of the MCG.

    - Venue Hire
    - Cost-recovery
    - Commercial Licensing

Venue hire fee

The MCG is a highly sought after location where a wide range of operational activity occurs every day of the year.

As such, a request to reserve a space within the MCG exclusively for the purpose of filming or photography will incur the standard venue hire fee. Please refer to the full guidelines below for details of venue hire fees. 

The venue hire fee relates to venue access only and does not cover venue services including, but not limited to, production equipment (lighting, sound etc.), labour charges, special security provisions, any catering or cleaning costs that may be involved. Pricing for venue services is available on request.
