Tips for citing Infographics, Powerpoints, and other visual media in APA 7th edition (p. 346-347). 

  • When adding a reference for an Infographic, photograph, or other visual work, remember that you DO NOT HAVE PERMISSION to reproduce it, ONLY to cite information from it. To add the visual work to your paper, you would need to obtain permission from the artist or creator. 
  • The creator, author, photographer, or sometimes group would be considered the "author" for visual works.  
  • After adding the title in italics, in plain text add the type of medium in brackets. Visual works you that could be cited might include, but are not limited too:
    • [Photograph]
    • [Infographic]
    • [Painting]
    • [Map]
    • [Lecture notes]
    • [Powerpoint slides]
