Film, Video, and Photography
The Princeton School of Public and International Affairs is a private institution and some of its facilities and events may not be open to the public. Therefore, all film, video, and photography permissions must be secured in advance of all events by contacting Dave Pavlak at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- News organizations must respect the rights of students and others at the School to decline to be interviewed or photographed.
- Members of the media may not capture photographic or video images or audio of School speakers/panelists unless they have signed a release form obtained only by the Office of Public Affairs and Communications.
- We ask that media members do not approach speakers directly for this information.
- Some of our events are for members of the campus community only. Print journalists may attend events designated as open to the public or open to the press, while separate broadcast permissions will have to be secured in advance for other media (see below). Registration may be required for large events.
- For events involving security measures, reporters who have not registered in advance will not be permitted entry.
- Reporters and photographers must remain seated at events unless granted permission by the media relations staff or event organizers.

Arthur Lewis Auditorium is a classroom. It is a confined space with strict fire code regulations. Therefore, all media members must comply with the following rules:
- Video and still photography camera men and women are not permitted to roam.
- We allow one seat per person. You cannot have an additional seat for your camera.
- We have a mult box for your use. We can run one feed to your cameras.
