Use of Images
The Office of University Communications is responsible for reviewing, approving, and coordinating all requests for the use of a Trademark in film, video, and/or photography and will consult with OTLM as necessary. These images are usually pictures or film containing copyright or trademark content about Florida Atlantic University. The use of all film and pictures bearing the trademarks of the Florida Atlantic University, or in which the institution holds the copyright, must be approved prior to any use.
Florida Atlantic University routinely photographs and records video of college and departmental programs and student activities for educational and promotional purposes. These photographs and videos appear in official University marketing, fundraising and educational publications and materials, which include but are not limited to, college and departmental brochures and newsletters, University Web sites (ex. FAU.edu and FAU.com), official University social media sites, and other University publications and media outlets.
The most common type of request is for athletic film or pictures. All requests for still and moving images, regardless of content, should be directed to Collegiate Images at www.collegiateimages.com.
In cases where the University does not own the copyright to the film being used but their trademarks still appear, permission can be received as well by contacting Collegiate Images.
The athletic department issues press credentials for those authorized to take pictures or film of University Athletic Events. For more information, please contact Katrina McCormack, Assistant AD for Media Relations at 561-297-3163.
