Photo Content Guidelines and Procedures
Do you have a photo you would like to use in your marketing? Submit it to our marketing
team and we will review it for use on our website and in other marketing pieces. Remember,
all our photos require a content release (you can find these in our toolkit)! Submit
your photo and photo release forms through firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will let you know whether your photo is approved within 48 hours.
Can I get a verbal content and photo release?
No, a signed content and photo release form is required.
Can I use my image that is copyrighted, taken by a professional photographer or other
not associated with UCM?
Yes, however, a signed copyright release must be provided by the photographer and
submitted with the photo.
Can I use photos from phone?
Yes, we recommend reviewing the photo settings on your phone to ensure it is set to
capture high quality images before taking photos. When you submit the photo, send
the actual size, not a reduced file size.
What does a photo/content release cover?
A signed photo/content release form authorizes permission for UCM to photograph or
video record you and reproduce any content you have provided in any form and for any
purpose associated with the university, including illustration, marketing, promotion
and advertising. This release ensures that you understand that you will not be compensated
in any way for such use.
Can you enlarge a small image to fit a larger space?
To keep the quality of the image we suggest you do no enlarge a small image.
