Scrapbook/Listener Pictures on the Web
To better establish a community presence, Piedmont Broadcasting may take pictures at public events (concerts, contests, remotes, etc) and post them on our website. That picture is taken by a paid employee of Piedmont Broadcasting; therefore, it becomes Piedmont Broadcasting’s personal property and gives the right to use the images on our website, social media networking sites or with any promotion dealing with a similiar event.
Also, Piedmont Broadcasting will take photographs of winners of promotions. Since contests are so heavily advertised on our website and on-air, Piedmont Broadcasting feels as though the public would like to be involved when it comes to showcasing the winner.
