Photo/Publicity Release (Minor Child)


Do you work with children? Are you hosting an event where children will be present? Need to take photos of the children to post on social media or include in other promotional material? Make sure you have the children (and their parents or guardians) sign a photo/publicity release…just like this one.

A photo/publicity release grants you (the photographer or content producer) the right to use, publish or display a person’s (in this case a minor child) photo or likeness for commercial profit or benefit. If you need that right, then you need this template. This template firmly establishes your ownership of any photos you take or any content you produce using the likeness of the minor child who signs the agreement. It also grants you, as owner of the content, the right to do whatever you want with the content without any further permission from the child or his/her parent/guardian. Sounds great, right

Not sure how to fill out a template? Here are some basic tips to help!

1. When contracting with another party, make sure you know the legal name of that person or entity. You want to make sure that you are binding the right person to the agreement. If you are contracting with a business, check your Secretary of State registry to ensure you have the full legal name and address of the business.

2. To appear SUPER professional, fill out the template in MS Word or another word processing platform BEFORE you present it to the other party.But, if you are running short on time and need to fill in your template in pen or pencil, it will still be binding.

3. Signing and filling contracts by hand is so 2005! Take the stress out of executing your agreements by using an electronic signature platform like DocuSign, HelloSign or AdobeSign to sign and disseminate your agreements.

4. If you make a mistake when you fill out the agreement, no worries! Terminate the first agreement and then try again.
