OIST Multimedia Guidelines

A picture is worth a thousand words. The Communication and Public Relations (CPR) Division encourages the OIST community to share with the rest of the world some of the exciting things happening at the university and on the island. To do this, CPR has created an OIST Flickr account and OIST YouTube account. Flickr is an image and video sharing site on the Internet, which allows the OIST community to store and share photos with the world. 

Usage and Ownership

The Communication and Public Relations (CPR) Division is responsible for selecting, uploading, and archiving all photos and videos to the OIST Flickr account for the purpose of highlighting research, education, and activities happening at the university, as well as its buildings and landscape.

By submitting photos and videos to the CPR Division, members of the OIST community implicitly agree that the university has a right to use any photos submitted for use on the OIST website, mobile site, social media platforms, and any other public relations materials including brochures and posters.

In addition, by submitting photos to the CPR Division, members of the OIST community are giving OIST full usage and responsibility for photos uploaded on the OIST Flickr page.

Photos on OIST websites and Flickr are available for download for anyone to use, but upon usage, please cite “Photo: OIST”.
