Order deadline: Tuesday, February 14 by 3:00pm
The Iowa High School Athletic Association and the Iowa Newspaper Association are again teaming up to facilitate a service for Iowa newspapers that are unable to staff the 2023 State Wrestling Tournament with a photographer. The Iowa Newspaper Association will provide a pool of volunteers to take pictures. The tournament dates are Wednesday, February 15 through Saturday, February 18. The IHSAA will have all state-qualifying wrestlers listed on its website at http://www.iahsaa.org/ by Sunday, Feb. 12.
Newspapers will be given options for purchasing photos of each wrestler requested. On the order form you will be asked to select from these options: Please provide one photo from each match this wrestler wrestles (ALL) – $14 per photo —Please provide one photo of this wrestler from the tournament (ONE) – $14 per photo —Please provide a photo of this wrestler only if still in competition on Saturday (SATURDAY) – $16 per photo —Please provide a photo of this wrestler standing on the podium if he is a medalist (PODIUM) – $16 per photo
Photo requests must submitted online by Tuesday, February 14 by 3:00pm. We will do our best to accommodate orders that are sent after the deadline, but all photos will be charged at a rate of $16 per photo if the order request is received after the deadline.
Photographers will shoot multiple photos of each wrestler and will select the ONE photo from each match that they believe is the best one taken. Photos will be made available on the INA’s ftp site for download by participating members as soon as possible following the matches.
Newspapers opting to get just one photo of a wrestler (rather than one photo from each match the wrestler wrestles) will likely receive a photo from one of the earlier rounds in the tournament. Newspapers opting to purchase one photo of a wrestler from each match will receive the photos as the tournament progresses.
Newspapers will be billed for the photos whether or not they are used. The INA will make every effort to make sure that volunteers are well organized so that all newspapers requesting photos will receive them. However, members are asked to remember that this is a service where members are doing their best to help other members and we can make no guarantees. The photos are for the exclusive use of the newspaper ordering them. In order to be fair to the volunteers, and in order to insure the continuation of the program, members are asked not to forward the photos to other newspapers.
