What are the guidelines for providing model releases for public (indoor/outdoor) events where there are crowds, and it is possible to identify some people, mainly the one on the stage?  This shot is an example of what I mean.

Use it as an Editorial, as you are not likely to get MR from every one in the shot. In the past it might have been passable, since only the face recognition was crucial, the criteria are much stricter now, and you'd easily need more than 10 MRs here [along with property release, probably].

You will need PR from the church for editorial collection.

Thank you gipi23 and slobo.
I believe the same rule applies to students in a classroom, auditorium or sports gymnasium. Right?

Contributors who have photos like this in their portfolios get these kind images at planned shoots. They hire the models, rent the location, bring assistants to handle releases, and shoot a lot of frames that they can upload. As an example, contributor LeggNet has done some big shoots like this. You an be sure that it is a lot of work and a high risk/high reward undertaking.

Thank you for the suggestions, Box5.
I saw LeggNet's work as you recommended. Maybe I am more into another approach, trying to really include larger audience. But I will take your advice into account, of course.

Apart from the issue of shooting in a private place that may require a property release, you would need a model release for pretty much every person in the foreground here, as well as one for the person on stage.

Generally speaking, if there is a person in the frame who is more that a few indistinct pixels then there is a good chance you will be asked to supply a model release for them.

Please take time to familiarise yourself with the Model Release Article.

Thank you, kelvinjay.
I had already read that article, and now I have moved on to read the one about Editorial images also.
