  1. IHF’s support and logo must be acknowledged clearly in all printed and web-based material relating to the event/project. This includes but is not limited to: flyers, advertisements, programmes, movie credits, conference proceedings, web pages, etc. The wording will depend on the type of contribution provided [in association, partners, supported by, etc.].
  2. IHF’s support must be acknowledged verbally in any events benefiting from its sponsorship. This acknowledgement must be repeated whenever the audience changes. For example, if a film is being shown for three nights to three different audiences, IHF’s support must be acknowledged on all three nights. However, if a conference occurs over three days with broadly the same attendees, then IHF’s support should be acknowledged at the start and finish of the conference.
  3. Any podcasts, videocasts, or other recorded sound and/or video from the events being sponsored shall be made available, with all relevant rights, to IHF for dissemination through its website (either directly or through a link to the event’s website) and for use in IHF’s promotional materials. IHF promises in return to credit the provider of the film and the organiser of the event in any subsequent use. A reciprocal link would be provided by us to them.
  4. All projects must submit an end of project report.
