Once approved you can pin directly to the board. If you do not have a Pinterest account, you can simply email your photos to email@example.com and we can pin them for you. All pins/photos must contain a short description that explains what is pictured and your school name. You may also include a link to your chapter website.

Before posting any images scanned from original printed photographs, please submit a media release signed by any individuals in the photo that can be identified and contacted. If the individuals cannot be contacted, please indicate why. Photos previously used in a publication, such as a yearbook, magazine, or newspaper may be posted without a media release. Email scanned media releases and other notations. Include in the email your school name, a brief description of the photo, and the names of people in each photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.
