Visual/Audio Image Release Form


By entering in Cal Maritime's Photo Contest, you are agreeing to the following:

I grant permission to California State Maritime Academy (hereafter Cal Maritime), its employees and agents, to take and use visual/audio images of me. Visual/audio images are any type of recording, including but not limited to photographs, digital images, drawings, renderings, voices, sounds, video recordings, audio clips or accompanying written descriptions. Cal Maritime will not materially alter the original images with the exception of video closed captions.

I agree that Cal Maritime owns the images and all rights related to them. The images may be used in any manner or media without notifying me, such as university-sponsored websites, publications, promotions, broadcasts, advertisements, posters and theater slides, as well as for non-university uses. Use may also include, but is not limited to, posts on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn or other similar social media sites. I waive any right to inspect or approve the finished images or any printed or electronic matter that may be used with them, or to be compensated for them.

I release Cal Maritime and its employees and agents, including any firm authorized to publish, broadcast and/or distribute a finished product containing the images, from any claims, damages or liability which I may ever have in connection with the taking or use of the images or printed material used with the images.

I am at least 18 years of age and competent to sign this release. I have read this release before entering, I understand its contents, meaning and impact and I freely accept the terms.
