Quote:Well I did mention reproducing them for sale...

True, but I think what I've learned here is that for reproducing for sale is absolutely fine without a release, but publication for commercial purposes may mean the subject wants a slice of your pie, or a say in how the images are used.

But even big agencies have double standards - and are quite happy to sell photos, without releases, of kids provided the photos have been taken abroad!

Well, no, it's not just us as I said in the first post, it's the council as well. We're fairly sure we need the releases for the council's benefit, I'm just looking for a form, as that's part of the research I'm looking at before the next meeting

Alamy did have a model release form for download, actually one thing to do is go talk to the council and ask them what they require, take the work you are basing it on as an example and see what they say. They may also have a standard release form then use too.

Where is the boundary between Editorial and commercial use? I have been asked if I can supply an image taken at a sporting event that I classed as Editorial.

The company that wants the image I suspect would require a commercial license, certainly if its for advertising or promotion (still establishing the intended use).

If they just want it to show participation in recent local events on their website or external newsletters - are those still considered promotional/marketing, and therefore commercial or can these still be classed as editorial use?
