Code of Conduct
and Media Ethics
While we here at Sideline Replays comprised entirely of photographers, we are still part of the Journalism team. As photojournalist we still need to be mindful of what we shoot and how it could be represented.
We also don't write opinion pieces, just basic sports news; like scores, schedules, stats and of course photos! However, even we make mistakes, so if you notice something that needs to be corrected give us an email at email@example.com and we will review, verify and edits our mistakes. (or message us on FB)
While Sideline Replays does not employ the photographers that contribute to our site, we still require that they conduct themselves in a professional manner:
- Following all rules set by the league, venue and event organizers (Shooting locations, image approval, etc)
- Acting in a Professional manner; Any kind of Harassment, Violence, Racism, Sexism, any kind of Bigotry, will not be tolerated
- Be respectful to the people of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit; respect and acknowledge their land that we reside and work on
- Following all safety protocols when on site
Sideline Replays is an equal opportunity site and encourages contributors from ALL qualified individuals.
** We would like to thank the Society of Professional Journalists for proving great resources on Ethics and allowing us to share parts of their Ethics Code. If you have never checked out their site, please do, it is an invaluable resource for every media position, from writer, to editor to photographer to readers!
