The publication of any information is at the complete discretion of the Michigan District.

Photo Release Forms and Verbiage Samples

Standard Release Form

The Michigan District, LCMS obtains release forms every time we photograph and/or record an event or presentation that we intend to utilize in publications, on the web, etc. Churches and schools are encourage to adapt the form below for use every year, to have obtained permission forms on file.

District Video / Audio / Photo Acknowledgement and Release Form

Release Verbiage on Registration Forms

For certain events, where tracking attendees and photo permissions is challenging due to the number of attendees, we add the following consent verbiage to the registration form.

"By registering your child/youth for this event, you are authorizing the Michigan District to obtain and use reasonable photographs, audio, and video of my child for purposes of Michigan District records, public relations, and/or advertising in print, video, and web media outlets."

If we have a parent who simply does not consent, but still wants their child to participate, we encourage the parent to explain to the child that any time a photo is being taken, they must excuse themselves.
