Using images is a powerful way to share the messages raised by HMD at your activities.  Here you will find a selection of photographs which we think are suitable, and you are allowed to use these as you wish so long as you do not edit or crop the images and you must supply copyright information as requested.  Please pay close attention to the captions for each photograph – it’s important that you tell the whole story behind an image when using it.  In this section, we have also provided guidance on how to use images at your HMD activities.
