Photo Release & Honor Code
Photo Release Statement
All photographers taking photographs of National Graduate School events must obtain a signed release form from any student, faculty member, staff person, or member of the public who is visibly recognizable in the photograph. Crowd scenes where no single person is dominant feature are exempt.
These rules govern photographs intended for use in any NGS publication of a marketing or a public relations nature, such as newsletters, brochures, viewbooks, promotional items, or other such material. Releases also must be obtained for photographs used on the Web. These rules are not in effect when photographs are taken of news events, but photographs taken for news purposes require a release for reuse in marketing materials.
This release form has been approved by The National Graduate School’s Director of Regulatory Affairs.
