• Optiko will never use any image in any other publication, or in any other printed format, other than the journal.

• The name of the photographer will always be credited alongside the image used, unless otherwise requested.

• Contact details (i.e. email addresses) and personal webpages will not be published unless requested and/or permission is granted.

• Due to the not-for-profit nature of the project and printing/distribution costs, unfortunately free copies of the journal cannot be provided to contributors who have their photographs published.
