Mad Rollin’ Dolls 2010-2011 Photography and Media Policy
Mad Rollin’ Dolls (MRD) requires all media representatives and freelance photographers to obtain a media pass prior to photographing a bout. SLR and DSLR cameras are not permitted on the venue floor without a media pass, though you may use these types of cameras from the stands. Recording bout video footage from any vantage point is strictly prohibited without express consent from the Mad Rollin’ Dolls Public Relations (PR) Coordinator and Hinckley Design & Productions.
Requests for media passes should be submitted to
no later than 5:00 pm the day before a scheduled bout. A PR representative will confirm your request by 10:00 am the day of the bout. MRD reserves the right to deny bout-day requests for media passes.
Tripods and monopods are permitted only in special circumstances and only with prior approval. If you would like to use a tripod or monopod, contact the PR Coordinator at least three days before the scheduled bout. The Coordinator or another PR representative will contact you no later than 24 hours before the scheduled bout to let you know whether your request is granted.
Media Pass Holders
