High-quality, authentic visuals which show the joy children get from exercise are essential for the Finnish Athletics Federation’s communications. The visual materials are only used to promote athletics – particularly where children’s and youth athletics are concerned. For joint projects, we can also pass visual materials on for our partners to use and promote these joint projects.

Photographs and other recordings of the event made at the YAG may be used, edited and published in the communications and marketing events of the Finnish Athletic Federation and its partners, and in publications such as websites, press releases and flyers. The Finnish Athletics Federation and its partners may publish recordings electronically or in print. A participant in an event may withdraw his or her consent for the use of pictures or other recordings by informing the Finnish Athletics Federation of this in writing.

You can download pictures after the event for your own use on this webpage.
