FMP – Copyright Research 12.11.2020

I have been researching the use of newspaper and magazine articles within my FMP, and the corresponding copyright.

My intention being to reproduce screen prints of article headlines relating to Home education.

Below is some information I found relating to useage relating to the guardian and Observer newspapers.

  3. Alongside all uses of GNM content for the Purposes, you shall print an acknowledgement to GNM such as “Courtesy of Guardian News & Media Ltd”.

In addition to looking at news outlets I am also trawling through the department of educations’ guidance of home education for both parents and councils . I am keen to illustrate not only the juxtaposition of the harrowing content of the stories of how some families came to be Home Educating, against the beautiful aesthetics of the imagery of families I have photographed, but also the juxtaposition of the guidance and laws surrounding Home education, and the practices of some councils across England.
