The Crescent-News religion section has a new photo policy regarding submitted photos. Before any submitted photo (including pictures of Christian groups or artists) will be considered for publication, the person submitting the photo must first provide the C-N with a copyright waiver form declaring that (1) they are the copyright owner since they took the photograph or digital image, or (2) they have obtained express, written permission from the photographer for the photo to be published.
Waiver forms are available at The Crescent-News or may be faxed or emailed to those requesting one.
The C-N will not guarantee publication of submitted photos but will consider them for publication (once a waiver is received) depending upon image quality, content and available space.
Churches are strongly encouraged to contact the C-N at 419-784-5441, Ext. 216, to arrange for a newspaper staff member to take a promotional photograph for publication. Arrangements should be made at least 7-10 days before the event.
The religion section will continue to be published every Friday.
