University Releases New Requirements for Multimedia Release

Effective April 1, 2024, the university will implement new guidelines on multimedia release for individuals appearing in photography or videography. 

Moving forward, it is recommended that program registration forms include a statement about multimedia use in the event details. It is also recommended that a Multimedia Crowd Notification Sign be shared in a visible place during all Extension programs. 

Suggested verbiage to be placed on registration forms is as follows: 
Photos are being taken at this event and may appear in The Ohio State University print or digital communications or marketing materials. By attending this event, you hereby authorize the university to use your photograph in any and all use related to the educational mission of the university without compensation. Please notify the department hosting this event if you wish to attend but not have your picture used in any way. 

Learn about when a multimedia release is and is not required and download a Multimedia Crowd Notification Sign from the university brand center (scroll all the way to the bottom).

Note: more information will be coming regarding specifics for 4-H youth development.
