Omissions insurance coverage</a>. In reviewing the film, we note that the producer filmed copyrighted and trademarked material, but failed to get the necessary permission to include it in the film.</p>\n<p class=\"hs-migrated-cms-post\"><span style=\"background-color: transparent;\">E&amp;O insurance policies insure against claims arising from accidentally infringing a copyright or trademark, <a href=\"/articles/invasion-of-privacy-and-false-light\" rel=\"noopener\">invading someone’s privacy</a> or otherwise getting tripped up on someone else’s rights. In order to qualify for E&amp;O coverage, the film in question must be <a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">fully cleared</a> and the producer must acquire all necessary permissions from third parties whose rights might otherwise be infringed. If a film includes material that potentially infringes a third party’s copyright and permission has not been acquired, there are a number of options to consider.</span></p>\n<div class=\"hs-migrated-cms-post\">\n<p>First, the film could be edited to remove the offending material. This is only a viable option if time, finances and/or creative willingness permit. Second, there may be an exception allowing the inclusion of certain copyrighted material in the film without permission.</p>\n<p>Likely the most popular excuse for copyright infringements is the concept of “<a href=\"/articles/filmmakers-insurance-part-i\" rel=\" noopener\"><span style=\"font-weight: bold;\">fair use</span></a>”. Although referred to regularly in industry reference materials available here in Canada, fair use is a US principle based on the belief that it is not “fair” to find every copying to be a violation of copyright law if such copying was for certain purposes, including criticism or review. (For example, the concept of “parody” falls under fair use in the US and has provided many a filmmaker with substantial sources of otherwise protected material. Thank you Mel Brooks and Mike Myers!)</p>\n<p>Fair use does <span style=\"font-weight: bold;\">not</span> exist in Canada and is often used interchangeably, and often confusingly, with “<a href=\"/articles/fair-use-vs.-fair-dealing\" rel=\" noopener\" style=\"font-weight: bold;\">fair dealing</a>”, the concept found in the <span style=\"font-style: italic;\">Canadian Copyright Act</span>. Other than in very clear-cut cases, extreme caution must be used in relying on fair dealing, which is a very limited defense as the use of the material must be for “private study, research, criticism, review or newspaper summary”. Unfortunately, because there are no hard and fast rules available, it is impossible to define what is and is not fair dealing.</p>\n<p>Other than fair dealing, in Canada, the concept of “<a href=\"/articles/what-is-incidental-inclusion\" rel=\"noopener\"><strong>incidental inclusion</strong></a>” may provide another possible exception to copyright infringement. If the use of copyrighted material is very minor and is incidentally and not deliberately included, (for example, a pre-existing credit card door sticker at a retail location), it is likely that the use will fall within incidental inclusion and will not be considered an infringement. It can become prohibitively expensive and time consuming to clear every protected item in a film, no matter how small the use.</p>\n<p>If E&amp;O insurance is required, and if none of the above options is feasible, in some cases it may be possible to “exclude” the offending material from the E&amp;O insurance policy and effectively assume the risk yourself. (Be aware, however, that these types of exclusions may not be acceptable to broadcasters and distributors.)</p>\n<p>The bottom line? Always, always, always ensure that you acquire all necessary permission to include any protected material in your film before you start shooting.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related Links:</h3>\n<p><a

Yes, they may understand manufacturing well and there are other things they may know, but it usually isn’t film insurance.</p>\n<p>We do tend to receive a lot of calls and emails from other brokers who have clients who are doing something related to production; the better brokers will usually refer them over to Front Row because we have a better understanding of film insurance nuances.</p>\n<p>I had a client in the TV commercial business once say to me, “Steve, what makes you really valuable to me is what I don’t have to tell you.” We know about this stuff—you’re talking about certain equipment; we understand what’s going on behind the scenes. Whether that is a film or TV production, a commercial, a short film or a live production, it’s hugely valuable to talk to a broker who has been on set, who understands the equipment; we have relationships with all the rental companies and we understand their requirements around insurance.</p>\n<p>One of my colleagues, <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/staff/david-hamilton\">David Hamilton</a> (President + CEO, Front Row), likes to say, “We want to make insurance the easiest line item on your budget. We just don’t want you to worry about insurance and we’re going to do it quickly and efficiently.”</p>\n<p>Particularly on <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">errors &amp; omissions (E &amp; O) insurance</a>, we will sometimes see other brokers trying to find coverage for producers and they think about it like they do other professional liability products. So, when they get into it, they start to realize that the insurers that provide that coverage – they don’t necessarily want to deal with a general broker because there is a lot of handholding that would be taking place that they’re just not used to.</p>\n<p>Therefore, what often happens is that the client ends up incurring more legal fees and the risk of incurring more legal fees with the insurer’s counsel also goes up. We, on the other hand, bring a lot of shorthand to the <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/film-production-insurance\">film production insurance</a> conversation; we know what to ask and we know what the hot buttons are.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\">— <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/staff/steve-beatty\">Steve Beatty</a> | Executive VP Business Development, Front Row Insurance</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\">Courtesy of the <em>Canadian Made</em> podcast: <a href=\"https://www.instagram.com/canadianmadepodcast/\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">https://www.instagram.com/canadianmadepodcast/</a></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><strong><em>Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</em></strong> <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/film-production-insurance\">Get a quote for film production insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 13px;\"><strong><em>About</em></strong><em>: Front Row Insurance Brokers Inc. is an independent insurance broker that specializes in the entertainment industry – specifically, the film industry.

In order for coverage to continue, the policy must stay in force.</p>\n<p>With this type of policy, endorsements can be made so that the policy responds to incidents which occurred before the policy start date, also known as “Prior Acts” coverage. Tail coverage is another extension that can be obtained wherein the insurer will cover events that occur while the policy is in force, but which the insured is unaware of during the policy period, and are reported to the insurer after the policy terminates. By obtaining tail end coverage, the claims based policy is in effect converted to an occurrence policy.</p>\n<h3>Pros of a Claims Made E&amp;O Policy</h3>\n<p>A benefit of this type of policy is that if a claim arises relating to incidents which occurred before the policy start date, the claim may be covered. Another reason why this type of E&amp;O policy is purchased is because it is less expensive than occurrence based policies. Typically, the premium increases over the first five years of coverage in increments proportional to the claims reporting for that experience.</p>\n<h3>Cons of a Claims Made E&amp;O Policy</h3>\n<p>Once a “claims-made” policy has expired, purchasing insurance for past events will become difficult, expensive and perhaps not possible. Once coverage has expired, claims can no longer be submitted, even if the claim occurred during the policy term.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h2 style=\"font-size: 36px;\">OCCURRENCE BASED E&amp;O POLICIES</h2>\n<p><strong>Occurrence Based E&amp;O Policies</strong> cover losses that occur during the policy term as long as the project/film is released or broadcast during the dates at which an incident causing damage occurs. Although the loss can be reported years later, it must have “occurred” during the policy term. This type of E&amp;O policy may not cover occurrences that happened prior to the policy being in force.</p>\n<h3>Pros of an Occurrence Based E&amp;O Policy</h3>\n<p>A benefit of this type of policy is that there is no need to renew the policy to maintain coverage.

OCCURRENCE BASED E&amp;O\" width=\"600\" style=\"width: 600px; display: block; margin: 0px auto;\"></em></p>\n<h2>CLAIMS MADE E&amp;O POLICIES</h2>\n<p><strong>Claims Made E&amp;O Policies</strong> cover claims that are made during the policy term<strong>. </strong>The loss may have occurred in the past, but as long as it is reported during the current policy term, it can trigger coverage. In order for coverage to continue, the policy must stay in force.</p>\n<p>With this type of policy, endorsements can be made so that the policy responds to incidents which occurred before the policy start date, also known as “Prior Acts” coverage. Tail Coverage is another&nbsp; extension that can be obtained wherein the insurer will cover events that occur while the policy is in force, but which the insured is unaware of during the policy period, and are reported to the insurer after the policy terminates. By obtaining tail end coverage, the claims based policy is in effect converted to an occurrence policy.</p>\n<h3>Pro’s of a Claims Made E&amp;O Policy</h3>\n<p>A benefit of this type of policy is that if a claim arises relating to incidents which occurred before the policy start date, the claim may be covered. Another reason why this type of E&amp;O policy is purchased is because it is less expensive than occurrence based policies. Typically the premium increases over the first five years of coverage in increments proportional to the claims reporting for that experience.</p>\n<h3>Con’s of a Claims Made E&amp;O Policy</h3>\n<p>Once a “claims-made” policy has expired, purchasing insurance for past events will become difficult, expensive and perhaps not possible. Once coverage has expired, claims can no longer be submitted, even if the claim occurred during the policy term.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h2>OCCURRENCE BASED E&amp;O POLICIES</h2>\n<p><strong>Occurrence Based E&amp;O Policies</strong> cover losses that occur during the policy term as long as the project/film is released or broadcast during the dates at which an incident causing damage occurs. Although the loss can be reported years later, it must have “occurred” during the policy term. This type of E&amp;O policy may not cover occurrences that happened prior to the policy being in force.</p>\n<h3>Pro’s of an Occurrence Based E&amp;O Policy</h3>\n<p>A benefit of this type of policy is that there is no need to renew the policy to maintain coverage. Also, years after this type of policy has lapsed, a claim can be made for incidents that occurred while the policy was in force.</p>\n<h3>Con’s of an Occurrence Based E&amp;O Policy</h3>\n<p>This type of E&amp;O policy is typically more expensive than claims based policies because the insured is prepaying for tail costs whether the tail gets used or not. Another disadvantage is that if a claim arises before delivery to the broadcaster or distributor, any defense costs associated with the claim may not be covered. It’s important to <a href=\"/contact-us\" rel=\" noopener\">speak with your broker</a> about whether <strong>Prior Acts</strong> coverage is included on your Occurrence Based Policy.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h2>WHY E&amp;O POLICIES ARE NEEDED?</h2>\n<ol>\n<li><em>I.e,</em> The script of your movie/show is slightly similar to another production, therefore a claim for <a href=\"/articles/how-does-an-eo-clearance-process-protect-against-plagiarism-claims\" rel=\" noopener\">plagiarism</a> could arise.<span style=\"text-decoration: underline;\"></span></li>\n<li>Covers the insured against defamation, <a href=\"/articles/eo-clearance-process-claims-of-libel\" rel=\" noopener\">libel</a> and slander suits.<span style=\"text-decoration: underline;\"></span></li>\n<li>Covers against intellectual property rights.<span style=\"text-decoration: underline;\"></span></li>\n<li>Typically, most distributors and broadcasters will <strong>not</strong> distribute or air any production without it.<span style=\"text-decoration: underline;\"></span></li>\n<li>It protects a company or individual from financial loss.<span style=\"text-decoration: underline;\"></span></li>\n</ol>\n<h2>TYPICAL E&amp;O CLAIM SCENARIOS</h2>\n<ul>\n<li>An action brought against a production company for the production of a movie which is similar to events depicted in a novel.</li>\n<li>A <a href=\"/articles/eo-clearance-process-claims-of-libel\" rel=\" noopener\">defamation</a>/slander suit brought against a production company based on a recognizable likeness between a fictional character in a TV series and an actual person.</li>\n<li>A production company is sued for unauthorized use of <a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/10796/title-reports-who-needs-them-e-o-insurance\" rel=\" noopener\">Titles</a> and/or Music/Stock Footage, for not acknowledging underlying works such as books, scripts of screenplays or for not requesting permission to acquire rights.</li>\n</ul>\n<h2>WHAT CAN AFFECT THE COST OF AN E&amp;O POLICY?</h2>\n<ul>\n<li>Whether an attorney’s services were used to secure <a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/26544/script-insurance-clearance-reports-what-are-they-and-why-are-they-important\" rel=\" noopener\">clearances</a> and licenses<span style=\"text-decoration:

Shutterstock royalty-free stock photo</em></p>\n<!--more-->\n<p>On the fence about buying <a href=\"https://photographer.frontrowinsurance.com/\"><span>photography insurance</span></a> because you think you’re careful with your gear and nothing bad will happen? That is a risky line of thinking that could cost you in the end. Generally speaking, paying the annual cost of an insurance premium will be <i>much less expensive</i> than paying out of pocket to replace photography equipment that has been damaged or stolen.</p>\n<p>Below are some examples of real-life “worst-case scenarios” that have happened to photographers. Photography insurance would typically cover these scenarios.</p>\n<h2>Gusts of Wind and Photography Lights: Sworn Enemies</h2>\n<p>During a photo shoot, a $3,000 photography light was destroyed when a gust of wind came along and knocked it into a pool. The light was on a stand. This surprised the photographer because the weather was moderate and not windy before the gust suddenly came along and destroyed the light. This is an example of how even a careful photographer can be surprised by the need to make an insurance claim.</p>\n<h2>Zoom Lens: from Dresser to Floor</h2>\n<p>During another photo shoot, a photographer leaned on a dresser that had a $2,500 zoom lens sitting on it. The photographer thought the dresser was stable, but it wasn’t entirely and it tipped, sending the lens down to the floor. Upon inspecting the lens, the photographer discovered that the lens would no longer zoom and was stuck on a single focal length setting. The lens would have to be fixed or replaced.</p>\n<h2>Theft from Vehicle: Photography Insurance</h2>\n<p>You arrive back at your car to find the trunk pried open and your <a href=\"/articles/top-10-camera-sling-bags-for-photographers-and-filmmakers\" rel=\"noopener\">camera bag</a> missing. You take photos of the damage to your vehicle and file a police report. The police say it is unlikely they will recover your equipment, so you report the loss to your insurer.<span>&nbsp;</span></p>\n<p>Fortunately, because there were visible signs of forced entry into the vehicle and you filed a police report, the loss will be covered, subject to a higher deductible. Thieves target people they see carrying high-value equipment and follow them back to their cars.

Photography insurance would typically cover these scenarios.</p>\n<h2>Gusts of Wind and Photography Lights: Sworn Enemies</h2>\n<p>During a photo shoot, a $3,000 photography light was destroyed when a gust of wind came along and knocked it into a pool. The light was on a stand. This surprised the photographer because the weather was moderate and not windy before the gust suddenly came along and destroyed the light. This is an example of how even a careful photographer can be surprised by the need to make an insurance claim.</p>\n<h2>Zoom Lens: from Dresser to Floor</h2>\n<p>During another photo shoot, a photographer leaned on a dresser that had a $2,500 zoom lens sitting on it. The photographer thought the dresser was stable, but it wasn’t entirely and it tipped, sending the lens down to the floor. Upon inspecting the lens, the photographer discovered that the lens would no longer zoom and was stuck on a single focal length setting. The lens would have to be fixed or replaced.</p>\n<h2>Theft from Vehicle: Photography Insurance</h2>\n<p>You arrive back at your car to find the trunk pried open and your <a href=\"/articles/top-10-camera-sling-bags-for-photographers-and-filmmakers\" rel=\"noopener\">camera bag</a> missing.

That is a risky line of thinking that could cost you in the end. Generally speaking, paying the annual cost of an insurance premium will be <i>much less expensive</i> than paying out of pocket to replace photography equipment that has been damaged or stolen.</p>\n<p>Below are some examples of real-life “worst-case scenarios” that have happened to photographers. Photography insurance would typically cover these scenarios.</p>\n<h2>Gusts of Wind and Photography Lights: Sworn Enemies</h2>\n<p>During a photo shoot, a $3,000 photography light was destroyed when a gust of wind came along and knocked it into a pool. The light was on a stand. This surprised the photographer because the weather was moderate and not windy before the gust suddenly came along and destroyed the light. This is an example of how even a careful photographer can be surprised by the need to make an insurance claim.</p>\n<h2>Zoom Lens: from Dresser to Floor</h2>\n<p>During another photo shoot, a photographer leaned on a dresser that had a $2,500 zoom lens sitting on it. The photographer thought the dresser was stable, but it wasn’t entirely and it tipped, sending the lens down to the floor. Upon inspecting the lens, the photographer discovered that the lens would no longer zoom and was stuck on a single focal length setting. The lens would have to be fixed or replaced.</p>\n<h2>Theft from Vehicle: Photography Insurance</h2>\n<p>You arrive back at your car to find the trunk pried open and your <a href=\"/articles/top-10-camera-sling-bags-for-photographers-and-filmmakers\" rel=\"noopener\">camera bag</a> missing. You take photos of the damage to your vehicle and file a police report. The police say it is unlikely they will recover your equipment, so you report the loss to your insurer.<span>&nbsp;</span></p>\n<p>Fortunately, because there were visible signs of forced entry into the vehicle and you filed a police report, the loss will be covered, subject to a higher deductible. Thieves target people they see carrying high-value equipment and follow them back to their cars. Because <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/articles/equipmenttheftfromvehicle\"><span>theft from an unattended vehicle</span></a> is so common, some insurance companies exclude coverage altogether. Your insurer does cover the loss. The higher deductible is better than having no coverage at all.</p>\n<h2>Commercial Property not covered by a Homeowner’s Policy</h2>\n<p>A thief breaks into your home and steals thousands of dollars worth of property, including your camera equipment. You report the claim under your homeowner’s policy, thinking this is all personal property.<span>&nbsp;</span></p>\n<p>The claims adjuster assigned to your loss does a web search and sees that you have advertised prints for sale. Because you occasionally sell prints, your photo gear is now considered “commercial” equipment and, as such, is not covered by your homeowner’s policy. Your homeowner’s policy only covers “personal” camera gear that is not used for commercial purposes. You tell the adjuster that you only sold a half dozen prints for less than $300 in the last 12 months to a stock agency. The adjuster shrugs, “It doesn’t matter, even if you sell just one print for $5, you are a professional and your gear is considered commercial and is no longer covered under a homeowner’s policy”.</p>\n<p>Many professional photographers assume they are covered by their homeowner’s policy when in fact they are not: just another good reason to purchase photography insurance.</p>\n<h2>Get Photography Insurance (Canada)</h2>\n<p><span><a href=\"https://photographer.frontrowinsurance.com/\">Front Row’s photography insurance policy</a></span> (Canada) can be purchased online 24/7.

If you just want to fill out the paperwork and get that permit, this is as far as you’ll need to watch. Second: I’ll explain <a href=\"https://youtu.be/CwpS_rsyyd0\" rel=\" noopener\">what it <i>means</i> to add an additional insured to your policy</a>.</span></p>\n<h2>How do you add an additional insured?</h2>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">Most of the policies that you can buy through Front Row’s website come with something called a <strong>blank <a href=\"/articles/topic/certificates\" rel=\" noopener\">certificate of insurance</a></strong>. This is included along with the documents you receive by email when you purchase a policy with us. It’s sent to you as an attached PDF.</span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">You will also receive a PDF with instructions on how to issue blank certificates. The blank certificate is a fillable form that you can use to issue your own certificates. If you open the blank certificate, </span><span class=\"s3\">you’ll see a fillable field at the top where you can add the Name and Address of the person or entity who you’re issuing the certificate to.</span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">To add a person, company, city, or government agency as an additional insured to your policy, copy &amp; paste their name and address into the fillable “<em>issued to</em>” field.</span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">Then print a copy of the PDF so it can no longer be altered. Give the certificate holder or permitting office their copy, and send a copy to our office so we know who you’ve issued certificates to. <em>The instructions we provide will tell you what email address to use when sending us your certificates.</em></span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">That’s it! You’ve just added an additional insured to your policy. You don’t need to get our approval or wait for any confirmation on our end. Front Row’s blank certificates are quick and easy, giving you the freedom and flexibility to provide the insurance documents you need to secure location permits or rent out venues or equipment.</span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">Now, I should add one caveat. The blank certificate form will work in <i>most</i> cases, but occasionally, you may have to contact our office to get a custom certificate prepared. Some organizations want to see specific wording on their certificates that doesn’t appear on the blanks. If you’re not sure if you will need custom wording, try the blank certificate form first. If they reject it, then <a href=\"/contact-us\" rel=\" noopener\">contact our office</a>.</span></p>\n<h3 class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">Related Video:</span></h3>\n<p class=\"p2\"><a href=\"https://youtu.be/CwpS_rsyyd0\" rel=\" noopener\"><span class=\"s3\">What does it mean to add an additional insured to my policy?</span></a></p>\n<p class=\"p2\">&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related Posts:</h3>\n<p><a href=\"/articles/canadian-filmmakers-navigating-your-certificate-of-insurance\" rel=\"noopener\">CANADIAN FILMMAKERS: NAVIGATING YOUR CERTIFICATE OF INSURANCE</a></p>\n<p class=\"p1\"><a href=\"/photography-insurance-101\" rel=\" noopener\"><strong>FREE EBOOK</strong>!

<a href=\"mailto:frcerts@frontrowinsurance.com\" rel=\"noopener nofollow\">frcerts@frontrowinsurance.com</a></em><br></span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">If you’re applying for a permit to film or photograph on location, or host an event, you may have been asked to provide a <a href=\"/articles/topic/certificates\" rel=\" noopener\">certificate of insurance</a> that adds an “<strong>additional insured</strong>” to your policy.</span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">Adding additional insureds to your policy is actually really easy, especially with the tools that Front Row provides you.</span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">First: I’m going to explain <i>how</i> to add an additional insured to your policy using Front Row’s blank certificate. If you just want to fill out the paperwork and get that permit, this is as far as you’ll need to watch. Second: I’ll explain <a href=\"https://youtu.be/CwpS_rsyyd0\" rel=\" noopener\">what it <i>means</i> to add an additional insured to your policy</a>.</span></p>\n<h2>How do you add an additional insured?</h2>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">Most of the policies that you can buy through Front Row’s website come with something called a <strong>blank <a href=\"/articles/topic/certificates\" rel=\" noopener\">certificate of insurance</a></strong>. This is included along with the documents you receive by email when you purchase a policy with us. It’s sent to you as an attached PDF.</span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">You will also receive a PDF with instructions on how to issue blank certificates. The blank certificate is a fillable form that you can use to issue your own certificates. If you open the blank certificate, </span><span class=\"s3\">you’ll see a fillable field at the top where you can add the Name and Address of the person or entity who you’re issuing the certificate to.</span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">To add a person, company, city, or government agency as an additional insured to your policy, copy &amp; paste their name and address into the fillable “<em>issued to</em>” field.</span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">Then print a copy of the PDF so it can no longer be altered. Give the certificate holder or permitting office their copy, and send a copy to our office so we know who you’ve issued certificates to. <em>The instructions we provide will tell you what email address to use when sending us your certificates.</em></span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">That’s it! You’ve just added an additional insured to your policy. You don’t need to get our approval or wait for any confirmation on our end. Front Row’s blank certificates are quick and easy, giving you the freedom and flexibility to provide the insurance documents you need to secure location permits or rent out venues or equipment.</span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">Now, I should add one caveat. The blank certificate form will work in <i>most</i> cases, but occasionally, you may have to contact our office to get a custom certificate prepared. Some organizations want to see specific wording on their certificates that doesn’t appear on the blanks. If you’re not sure if you will need custom wording, try the blank certificate form first. If they reject it, then <a href=\"/contact-us\" rel=\" noopener\">contact our office</a>.</span></p>\n<h3 class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">Related Video:</span></h3>\n<p class=\"p2\"><a href=\"https://youtu.be/CwpS_rsyyd0\" rel=\" noopener\"><span class=\"s3\">What does it mean to add an additional insured to my policy?</span></a></p>\n<p class=\"p2\">&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related Posts:</h3>\n<p><a href=\"/articles/canadian-filmmakers-navigating-your-certificate-of-insurance\" rel=\"noopener\">CANADIAN FILMMAKERS: NAVIGATING YOUR CERTIFICATE OF INSURANCE</a></p>\n<p class=\"p1\"><a href=\"/photography-insurance-101\" rel=\" noopener\"><strong>FREE EBOOK</strong>!

If you just want to fill out the paperwork and get that permit, this is as far as you’ll need to watch. Second: I’ll explain <a href=\"https://youtu.be/CwpS_rsyyd0\" rel=\" noopener\">what it <i>means</i> to add an additional insured to your policy</a>.</span></p>\n<h2>How do you add an additional insured?</h2>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">Most of the policies that you can buy through Front Row’s website come with something called a <strong>blank <a href=\"/articles/topic/certificates\" rel=\" noopener\">certificate of insurance</a></strong>. This is included along with the documents you receive by email when you purchase a policy with us. It’s sent to you as an attached PDF.</span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">You will also receive a PDF with instructions on how to issue blank certificates. The blank certificate is a fillable form that you can use to issue your own certificates. If you open the blank certificate, </span><span class=\"s3\">you’ll see a fillable field at the top where you can add the Name and Address of the person or entity who you’re issuing the certificate to.</span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">To add a person, company, city, or government agency as an additional insured to your policy, copy &amp; paste their name and address into the fillable “<em>issued to</em>” field.</span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">Then print a copy of the PDF so it can no longer be altered. Give the certificate holder or permitting office their copy, and send a copy to our office so we know who you’ve issued certificates to. <em>The instructions we provide will tell you what email address to use when sending us your certificates.</em></span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">That’s it! You’ve just added an additional insured to your policy. You don’t need to get our approval or wait for any confirmation on our end. Front Row’s blank certificates are quick and easy, giving you the freedom and flexibility to provide the insurance documents you need to secure location permits or rent out venues or equipment.</span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">Now, I should add one caveat. The blank certificate form will work in <i>most</i> cases, but occasionally, you may have to contact our office to get a custom certificate prepared. Some organizations want to see specific wording on their certificates that doesn’t appear on the blanks. If you’re not sure if you will need custom wording, try the blank certificate form first.

Second: I’ll explain <a href=\"https://youtu.be/CwpS_rsyyd0\" rel=\" noopener\">what it <i>means</i> to add an additional insured to your policy</a>.</span></p>\n<h2>How do you add an additional insured?</h2>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">Most of the policies that you can buy through Front Row’s website come with something called a <strong>blank <a href=\"/articles/topic/certificates\" rel=\" noopener\">certificate of insurance</a></strong>. This is included along with the documents you receive by email when you purchase a policy with us. It’s sent to you as an attached PDF.</span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">You will also receive a PDF with instructions on how to issue blank certificates. The blank certificate is a fillable form that you can use to issue your own certificates. If you open the blank certificate, </span><span class=\"s3\">you’ll see a fillable field at the top where you can add the Name and Address of the person or entity who you’re issuing the certificate to.</span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">To add a person, company, city, or government agency as an additional insured to your policy, copy &amp; paste their name and address into the fillable “<em>issued to</em>” field.</span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">Then print a copy of the PDF so it can no longer be altered. Give the certificate holder or permitting office their copy, and send a copy to our office so we know who you’ve issued certificates to. <em>The instructions we provide will tell you what email address to use when sending us your certificates.</em></span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">That’s it! You’ve just added an additional insured to your policy. You don’t need to get our approval or wait for any confirmation on our end. Front Row’s blank certificates are quick and easy, giving you the freedom and flexibility to provide the insurance documents you need to secure location permits or rent out venues or equipment.</span></p>\n<p class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">Now, I should add one caveat. The blank certificate form will work in <i>most</i> cases, but occasionally, you may have to contact our office to get a custom certificate prepared. Some organizations want to see specific wording on their certificates that doesn’t appear on the blanks. If you’re not sure if you will need custom wording, try the blank certificate form first. If they reject it, then <a href=\"/contact-us\" rel=\" noopener\">contact our office</a>.</span></p>\n<h3 class=\"p2\"><span class=\"s3\">Related Video:</span></h3>\n<p class=\"p2\"><a href=\"https://youtu.be/CwpS_rsyyd0\" rel=\" noopener\"><span class=\"s3\">What does it mean to add an additional insured to my policy?</span></a></p>\n<p class=\"p2\">&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related Posts:</h3>\n<p class=\"p1\"><a href=\"/photography-insurance-101\" rel=\" noopener\"><strong>FREE EBOOK</strong>!
