Conservation Partner Organizations

Conservation Partner Organizations

Throughout the year our partners will ask us to provide volunteer photographers at conservation events or projects, or contribute photographs in support of their conservation efforts.  Photographs may be used in social media, traditional media, fundraising and/or marketing materials, but will be properly credited and remain the property of the contributing photographer (see MOU below).

Partnership Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)

GNPA has written agreements with our supported organizations that provide important details on each party’s rights and responsibilities. Each of our partners has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that governs the use of these images for the protection of our photographers. These MOUs state, in part:

The parties understand and agree that the submitting photographer retains the copyright to submitted images, and that the non-exclusive license to utilize images submitted by GNPA members as set forth above is limited to your organization’s use for its own promotional and educational materials and programs.

From time to time, in addition to the GNPA services described herein, GNPA photographers may provide your organization with photographs from photographers’ personal portfolios. These photographs may contain the word “Limited Use” in the file name of the photograph. Unless your organization agrees otherwise in writing with the submitting photographer, photographs designated as Limited Use can only be used for the organization’s website, newsletters, social media channels, and printed material including posters, brochures, educational materials, annual reports and event invitations. Without limiting the generality of that limitation, photographs designated as Limited Use cannot be otherwise published, sold, or transferred to third parties.

Your organization agrees to provide notification to GNPA photographer(s) upon your organization’s use of any image(s) submitted to you by GNPA photographers.

Congratulations to all the winning photographers of the first annual GNPA Conservation Winter Project!

The project was a great way to support one of our Conservation partners, Wildlife Resources Division (WRD) of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) in Georgia.

With 384 photographs from 39 contributors across the state the judges had their hands full selecting the top photos.
