All film, video, and photo shoots to take place in Centennial Olympic Park require a permit. A Centennial Olympic Park permit is required for shooting in the entire park, stairs, entrances, sidewalks surrounding the park, and the Fountain of Rings.
Some shoots may be required to pay a site fee. All site fees are used to maintain and improve the park’s beauty and functionality.
Site fees are determined by the following criteria:
- Type of shoot (editorial, commercial, stock, etc.)
- Duration of shoot
- Size of the crew
- Amount of equipment and complexity of setup used
- Location and amount of space used within the park
- Publicity potential for Centennial Olympic Park
- People nor equipment are allowed in the flower beds at any time.
- When the lawn is closed to the public it is also closed to film and video crews.
- Centennial Olympic Park must have advance notice of all electrical needs, (e.g. whether or not you provide your own generators)
- The Park does not permit interviews of patrons, Park guests, or “man on the street” spots at any time.
- Centennial Olympic Park must pre-approve of the script for scenes to be shot on park grounds.
- All fees, insurance certificates, and final permit application must be received before permission to film will be granted.
- All broadcast television shows will need to sign the Georgia World Congress Center Authority’s Trademark and Image License Agreement.
