So we would like to share your photo? Here’s some questions that you may be curious about! 

Why are you asking for the rights to my photo/video?  We really like your photo and think it shows a really beautiful representation of Tempe locations, attractions and businesses. We also like to share our surrounding areas, like Papago Park, Desert Botanical Garden and South Mountain Park & Preserve. We hope you’ll allow us to potentially share your photo/video with the world to inspire people to visit Tempe, Arizona. 

Where and how will you use the photo/video? We may just be looking to share the photo/video on our Instagram feed or on our Instagram Stories. Other places we may use the photo/video include but are not limited to our social media channels (including Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, Pinterest, etc.)—in both organic and paid posts—, here on https://www.tempetourism.com, our Visitor Information guide, Visual Guide and/or digital ad placements. You could be asked in two ways about your photo/video and our access level. 

If we have asked you for , #YesTempe response: We are requesting that the content is permitted to be posted on our Instagram feed, Instagram Story and featured on website galleries* with photo credit. 

*Content is permitted to be shared via a CrowdRiff Gallery living on https://www.tempetourism.com website in full, including blog pages, dedicated pages, etc. The photo will link outright to the original post with the original username tagged to the post.  

Content is not permitted for social media usage across other social media channels. If Tempe Tourism Office wishes to use for “marketing efforts,” an additional request must be given to the user with additional acceptance of the terms and conditions as it relates to this new request. 

If we have asked for a #ILoveTempe response: We are requesting that the content is permitted to be potentially used in marketing efforts and material*. Photo/video credit will be placed when permitted and/or available.

Will you let people know it’s my photo/video? On social media channels, we will tag your social media handle in the caption. We take measures to make sure if you’re on another social channel with a different handle, we tag you appropriately. There can be instances when your photo/video may be used but a limited number of placements may not allow for it. We will as often as we can though. 

Will you edit my photo/video? Some placements may require us to crop the photo/video to better fit in the display dimensions or otherwise make changes, but we’ll always try to keep the editing to a minimum. You took a great picture/video and we don’t want to mess with it!
