Photo and Video Coverage Policy

Photo Coverage Policy

The Office of Campus Relations at the University of Illinois Springfield provides photographic coverage of noteworthy events that take place on campus. However, due to the large number of events taking place on campus, we can only photograph a select number of activities each year.

Campus Relations does not typically take photos of internal department events, college or department award ceremonies, faculty receptions or parties.

The decision on whether or not to photograph an event will be made by the Office of Campus Relations based on the uniqueness and newsworthiness of the event. The office will also consider whether images from the event could be used to support the campuses overall communication and marketing efforts, including use on social media.

The Office of Campus Relations does provide occasional photographic services to faculty and staff who need quality headshots or to departments that request group photos for marketing purposes.

Requests for photographic coverage must be submitted by email to UIS Campus Relations at least two weeks prior to the event.

Video Coverage Policy

The Office of Campus Relations at the University of Illinois Springfield produces news and feature videos as part of an overall campus communications and marketing strategy.

Decisions about whether an event warrants video coverage will be made by the Office of Campus Relations based on the events newsworthiness, its visual qualities and its overall connection to the communications and marketing strategy.

The UIS Office of Electronic Media is available for hire for video coverage of campus events, including lectures and symposiums. Contact Office of Electronic Media Director Cody Pope for more details.

Students, faculty and staff may submit names of students they suggest be featured in Leadership lived videos by using this online form.
