If submission of professional press photos commissioned by the Church is likely to make the difference between coverage and no coverage, as resources allow we will encourage areas of the Church to commission the necessary photos. These photos will also be of appropriate quality for use on the Church website.
The Communications Department has a very limited budget for photography but sometimes commissions photography which is not the obvious responsibility of another area of the Church. It declines to pay for images which have a slender chance of media coverage. On occasion the team may decline to use in its publications, the website and in press releases photography supplied by Forums, Councils and Committees which it believes to be of inadequate quality.
