One potential problem with ribbons is that there may be ribbon-fans who
also don't want to be photographed, and a blank ribbon in the midst of a
sea of others might get lost.
One option might be to choose a bright color (red might be a good
mnemonic) and have participants who don't want to be photoed put it on the
SIDE of their badge -- the special location would be a good indicator that
the ribbon has importance and would make it stand out. We'd need to ensure
that everyone got the message about what the ribbon meant, though.
