‘No drones allowed in Panagbenga’ – BCPO
by Rimaliza A. Opiña

Take pictures from the sidelines.

The Baguio City Police Office has barred the use of drone cameras when taking pictures of the street dancing and float parades of Panagbenga 2018 on Feb. 24 and 25.

Baguio City Police Office City Director Ramil Saculles said private individuals, amateur and professional photographers and even hobbyists are barred from using drones.

He said the prohibition is the BCPO’s proactive stance in ensuring that the two biggest events of the Panagbenga are secure.

He said if some people would need overhead shots, they may request from the BCPO for copies. BCPO will have a team that will take drone footage of the festivities.

The media accreditation committee of the Baguio Flower Festival FiFoundation Inc.said they would comply with the order of the BCPO.

Yearly, the BFFFI issues accreditation to media personnel and hobbyists to put into order the taking of photographs and video footages. A privilege of those issued an accreditation are access within the parade route and in other sites that would allow them to take the best shot.

For hobbyists and professional videographers and photographers, including reporters/writers, accreditation is ongoing at the media center of the Baguio Conventions and Visitors Bureau building, Burnham Park, beside the City Library.

Deadline for the submission of accreditation is on Feb. 16.
