NEEF offers a variety of grants and awards to support the extraordinary work being done across the nation at the local level. We routinely highlight individual and group commitment to nature through education and service on our media channels.
General Media Tools
Help us tell your story! This toolkit is a resource for NEEF Grantees to share stories about their work and amplify their impact. If you have communications questions, please email the team at email@example.com.
Media (Photo) Release Forms
Before capturing photos and videos of participants in a grant project, you must obtain their consent to use their images in your media. We make this easy with our NEEF Media Release form, available online and in print.
Send the link to the volunteers before the project or print out the QR code so everyone can scan and fill in the form online. Then NEEF will receive the consent without more from you.
Download and print out the NEEF Media Release Form and make sure that anyone who is identifiable in your images has signed it.
You have two options to upload the signed releases: take a photo of the signed document using your phone or scan the signed document in PDF, JPG, or PNG format and upload it to the Dropbox link you received in your awardee letter.
You will submit both photos and release forms using this link. Ensure that uploaded project photos are in JPG or PNG format and follow the naming standard, such as "[project name]_01" or "[organization name]_01" for easy identification.
Press Release Template
