FAQ / How do I fill in the model release document?



Regular Model Release documents need to be printed. Then fill the information as described below, scan it or take a photograph of it and upload it in your Model Release Library. We also accept model releases generated by applications, i.e. Easy releases. The apps that have been so far approved as compatible with our legal standards are Easy Release for iPad and Android, Model Release and ASMP Release for IOS only.
All the model releases must be filled in by you, as the photographer, your model and a witness who has to be a third person of legal age (you, the photographer or the model can't witness your own model releases). For self portraits, you are both photographer and model but you cannot be the witness. For images with your children, you are both photographer and parent/guardian but you cannot be the witness.
The following fields are mandatory for all model releases for adults:
- photographer's name, signature
- model's name, signature, complete postal address (including country), phone number
- witness' name, signature
The following fields are mandatory for all the model releases for people under 18:
- photographer's name, signature
- model's name
- tutor's (parent) name, signature, complete postal address (include country), phone number
- witness' name, signature
The model release must be filled in with roman letters and the writing must be readable. Should you upload a scanned or photographed MR, the signatures can not be digital. App generated model releases can have digital signatures.
