    which indicates how the photographer/filmmaker, the non-profit partner and the communication agency partner will create and use the imagery in the nonprofit's future communications.
  • A pdf of a letter from the nonprofit, on their letterhead, indicating their intent to use the imagery in their future communications, with credit to the Getty Images Creative Grants program.
