Please write or call to ask permission to use them.
Media Photos and Documentation:
All photos in the media section are made available for use in any publication, but must include a photo credit in small legible letters: "Photo courtesy GRRN" adjacent to one side of the photo. If the publication is web-based, we ask for a link in the photo credit to this link: http://www.grrn.org.
Please send me an email prior to publication, telling me which photo(s) you are using and which document(s) you are quoting. We wouldn't mind receiving a complimentary copy of the finished publication!
Unsolicited Photos, Logos, other assorted graphics:
Have you got a photo or graphic that involves Zero Waste that you think we might be interested in making available to other non-profits? If you wish to send any of these items to us, please inquire first with copy of the graphic attached as a jpeg or within the body of an email, no more than 350 pixels wide or 350 pixels high. Please note: we do not pay for unsolicited photos, logos or graphics.
We need from you:
- Copyright control - while graphics would be made available for use to all legitimate groups, we reserve the right to disallow use by individuals or groups, commercial, non-profit or otherwise for any reason. (Generally this means we want to make sure greenwashers can't use your graphic to co-opt the meaning of zero-waste.) You'll need to state clearly in your email that we are permitted to retain all copyright control of your specified graphic(s).
- Credit information - we would need your name and contact information so that those who use your graphic may thank you for creating it and let you know they are using it.
- Later - If your graphic is appropriate for our site, we will probably ask for it in a universally editable form such as a fireworks png or editable photoshop eps format that will allow for high resolution reproduction at any local printshop.
Regarding publication of GRRN copyrighted unsolicited graphics, etc. published elsewhere:
We need from you:
- Letter of request - Please send a letter telling us which graphic(s) you would like to publish, where and when. As suggested above - we reserve the right to deny use for any reason.
- Letter of thanks - After we have approved your use of any particular graphic, please send an email to the creator of the graphic, letting them know you plan on using their fine work.
