Image Release Statement and Form

Do you need one? 

An image release form is required when the image (of a person or persons) will be used specifically for advertising and promoting purposes. If the persons in the photo are the focus of the image to help sell the product, promote a ministry, or advertise for a special upcoming event, you definitely need an image release form (see below).

Here is the statement from the Office of General Council – General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists

“Recognizable images of individuals that will be used on Adventist Church Connect or Adventist School Connect sites may only be used after obtaining the written authorization of the subject. If you would like to include images of individuals on your site, please download a copy of the NAD Image Release form and have it signed by the subject in the image, or if the individual is a minor, by the minor’s legal guardian before posting the image. Releases are generally not required for newsworthy criticism or comment; however if you are not a professional used to making such judgments, we would advise you to seek legal counsel in order to avoid copyright infringement or invasion of privacy claims. Releases are also not generally required from people who are identifiable in a photo of a street or public place as long as the photograph is related to the subject matter of the article AND the identifiable people are NOT the focus of the photo.”
