BBFC Press Kit

The BBFC press kit is designed to provide journalists, bloggers and picture desks with up to date BBFC logos and standard information about the BBFC.

BBFC logos

The BBFC logo can be downloaded as a jpg or eps file.

The CBBFC website logo is also available. CBBFC is designed to give younger children easy to understand information about age ratings in the UK, and offer them the chance to find out about recent films and think about how age ratings work.

Age rating symbols

To use BBFC age rating symbols please email Billie Morgan.

BBFC age ratings can only be used against film, video or online content classified by the BBFC. Other uses are not permitted.  However we will consider requests to use BBFC age ratings in media reporting on a case by case basis.

About The BBFC

The BBFC is an independent, private, not-for-profit company which classifies films, video on all physical formats (DVD and Blu-ray Disc for example) and certain video games, advertisements and trailers.  It also classifies, on a best practice voluntary basis, video content for distribution online. The BBFC operates transparent, well-understood and trusted co-regulatory and self-regulatory classification regimes, such as its digital video service, based on years of expertise and published Guidelines which reflect public opinion and the risk of harm; and is accountable to Parliament.


CBBFC is the BBFC’s website for children. CBBFC features activities to help children learn about film classification, plus BBFC competitions and news about the latest kids films rated U, PG and 12A.  CBBFC also includes a section for adults, where parents of younger children can read about BBFC age ratings and find answers to frequently asked questions from other parents.
