MBARI makes our images and video available for education and outreach. We have a small team and limited resources to support the numerous requests we receive—we prioritize news media and productions that focus specifically on MBARI research and technology, and support projects that align our strategic education and outreach goals.
Requests are reviewed in the order in which they were submitted. Please do not submit requests by phone or email—additional outreach will not expedite a reply. We try to respond to time-sensitive requests from news media within 24 hours. Depending on our team’s current capacity, stock photo and video requests may require up to two weeks for review. MBARI may decline requests for projects that don’t align with our strategic education and outreach goals or if our team doesn’t have capacity at this time.
MBARI reserves the right to charge a licensing fee for use of our images and video. These fees cover the administrative costs associated with photo and video research and management. Proceeds from our licensing fees fund MBARI’s efforts to cultivate a new, and inclusive, generation of ocean explorers.
If you’re unable to submit a media request form or have any questions, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org.
