2018-2019 Stafford Indian Legend Yearbook
Senior Information and Policies
In an effort to make your senior yearbook the best yet, please be advised of the following information and policies:
The 2019 Indian Legend will be a color process publication, similar to that of previous years. While creating the best possible
publication for our readers, we must adhere to the highest standards of VHSL, NSPA and CSPA. Our publication emphasizes great
design, appropriate coverage, graphic uniformity, theme and aesthetics. In order to achieve our goals, specific requirements and
deadlines must be met.
Senior Yearbook Panel Portraits
It is the belief of the Indian Legend staff that students should stand out based on personality ad achievements not by how much they
pay for a yearbook panel portrait. However we are required by the county to accept portraits from outside photographers IF they
meet our established criteria. Seniors are encouraged NOT to submit from outside photographers as it will make the senior section
look disjointed and take away from the visual aesthetic. When everyone is treated equally and has the same backdrop, lighting and
apparel, the section flows smoothly. Our school photographer will provide each senior with FREE yearbook sitting and a set of proofs
to choose from. Students may upgrade to a paid sitting for additional backdrops, poses, and prop options.
