PHOTOGRAPH USE & DISPLAY

  • Photographs and/or visual depictions are allowed in a display if:
    • They are not deemed offensive or inappropriate by the Scientific Review Committee, the Display and Safety Committee, or the SSTFI Board of Directors.
    • Credit lines of their origins (“Photograph taken by . . .” or “Image taken from . . . ”) are attached. If all photographs being displayed were taken by the student or are from the same source, one credit line prominently displayed is sufficient.
    • They are from the Internet, magazines, newspapers, journals, etc., and credit lines are attached. If all photographs/images being displayed are from the same source, one credit line prominently displayed is sufficient.
    • They are photographs or visual depictions of the student.
    • They are photographs of human subjects for which signed consent forms are at the project or in the booth.
    • Display of photographs other than that of the student must have a photo release signed by the subject, and if under 18 years of age, also by the guardian of the subject. Sample consent text: "I consent to the use of visual images (photos, videos, etc.) involving my participation/my child's participation in this research."
  • Photograph credit lines – Make sure the credit line can be read on the display board.
  • Credit lines of origin  may begin "photograph taken by . . ." or "image taken from . . . "
  • IF ALL photographs being displayed were taken by the student exhibitor or are from one source, one credit line prominently and vertically displayed is sufficient. 
    • Guideline: use 12 point font (Arial or Times New Roman) on address labels and attach to or next to the photographs/images.
    • Please be sure to include the photographer, the source (i.e. Des Moines Register) if applicable, and the date photo was taken or printed (i.e. date came out in the Register).
    • NOTE: if all photographs taken by one person; one credit line displayed for all photographs/visuals is acceptable.
  • No photographs or any other visual depictions may be included in any manner at a project or in the booth if they are deemed visually offensive or inappropriate by the Scientific Review Committee, the Display and Safety Committee, or the SSTFI Board of Directors. This includes, but is not limited to, visually offensive photographs or visual depictions of invertebrate or vertebrate animals, including humans. The decision by any one of the groups mentioned above is final.
  • Photographs or other visual presentations depicting vertebrate animals in surgical techniques, dissections, necropsies, or other lab procedures are prohibited.
