How To Get A Model Release (Requesting Permission)

Getting a model release on Twenty20 is easy and a great way to boost your sales. Photos with people often are more authentic and are in high demand from customers!
(Learn more about why and when you need a model release here)

At a high-level, to complete a model release you will use our tools with 2 options:

  • Get a separate signature for each individual photo of that model
    OR
  • Your model can opt-in to give you permission for all photos you add of them. This feature should simplify your workflow greatly for repeat models because you only need to ask for that one signature.
    Note: Currently available only in our iOS app (version 2.34+). Coming soon to our website!

  

Please note: We do not currently accept paper or PDF model releases. You can send model releases directly from our iPhone app or website through the instructions below:

To request permission from the model, you can choose between these 3 options: 

  • Send the model an email by providing their email address and pressing 'send'
  • Copy the message in the box and send it to the model any way you want
  • If you have no way to contact the model, click on "I Don't Have Their Info"

Did your model lose the form? You can resend the release at any time by following these same instructions.
