Separate consent forms have been designed to provide explicit, active written consent for photo, audio, and video recording. Capturing someone’s image is more invasive than other forms of research. By signing the photo, audio, video consent form,participants indicate that they are fully aware of the type of data that will be collected.
The consent form template below will be suitable for many studies but may need alterations to be commensurate with your study and must be used in conjunction with the guidance given in Information Sheets & Consent Forms.
Explicit consent. Participants give consent by answering a specific question about their willingness to participate. This may be done in written (consent form) or oral form.
To be informed, consent must be given by persons who are competent to consent, have consented voluntarily, are fully informed about the research, and have comprehended what they have been told. Unless they are emancipated minors, individuals under 18 may never give consent. Also question the legal competence of people affected by mental illness, or institutionalized in the prison system. If a person is not legally competent to give consent, a parent or legal guardian has to give it. The participant may still give assent.
