Picture This: A New Procedure
Millersville’s University Communications and Marketing Office (UC&M) has announced its new photography procedure, which went into effect this fall.
Moving forward, UC&M will be focusing on photography that can be used to market the University in future publications and web projects, as well as documenting major, annual events such as homecoming, honors and awards, commencement and the athletic hall of fame.
You may still submit requests which should include specific details (i.e., event, time, location, etc.) and what you plan to use the photos for. UC&M will then determine if the request meets UC&M’s guidelines and if funding is available.
If UC&M cannot meet the request, there are other options. Digital cameras are available for loan through UC&M. Having a professional photographer is also an option. If you would like to have a professional photographer at your event, UC&M can provide you with a list of recommended outside vendors that are local and reasonably priced.
To send a request or for any other questions regarding photography, email Deb Miller, UC&M administrative assistant and photo manager/coordinator, at Deb.Miller@millersville.edu or visit UC&M’s website.
Review Magazine Distribution
In the spirit of being environmentally-friendly, as well as being cost-effective, there will be a slight change in how the Review magazine is distributed.
Starting with the summer 2012 issue, rather than the usual distribution of a magazine to every individual on campus, a quantity of the summer issue of the Review will be sent to each department/office.
This method of distributing the summer issue of the Review will serve as a test. If effective, this “green” and cost-saving method will be carried on for future issues.
If additional hard copies are needed, contact Deb Miller, UC&M, at 717-872-3586 or Deb.Miller@millersville.edu.
