Event Photography & Videography

University of Delaware photographers may be in attendance at Graduate College events, courses and programs, and their photos or videos may be used in UD's marketing and communications efforts.


A sign indicating the presence of UD photographers is displayed at most UD events. By attending, participants acknowledge that UD photographers may be present, and authorize the University of Delaware to record or photograph their image/voice as follows:

For valuable consideration received, I hereby give the University of Delaware the absolute and irrevocable right and permission, with respect to the video, social media and/or photographs that they have taken of me or in which I may be included with others. To copyright the same in their own name or any other name they may choose. To use, re-use, publish and re-publish the same, in whole or in part, individually or in conjunction with other photographs, in any medium and for any purpose whatsoever, including (but not by way of limitation) illustration, promotion and advertising and trade and to use my name in connection therewith if they so choose. I hereby release and discharge the University of Delaware from any and all claims and demands arising out of, or in connection with, the use of the photographs, including any and all claims for libel. This authorization and release shall also ensure to the benefit of the legal representatives, licensees and assigns of the University of Delaware as well as the person(s) for whom they took the photographs, video or posted social media. I am over the age of eighteen. I have read the foregoing and I fully understand the contents thereof.
