Image Request Form

Image Request Form
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

An image request form is a written agreement that should always be sent to the person you ask to produce an illustration or photograph. The discipline of composing your request in writing (usually after a personal meeting or telephone call) will help assure that you communicate clearly and accurately. It will also clarify responsibility in a situation in which the request was not properly completed. Both artist and art director will have a document to which they can refer.
