"Not Just a Content Provider, A Content Partner"
USA TODAY Sports Images is a leading news media service, providing live digital imagery to editorial news media outlets around the world. Our flex service allows editorial news media to select and license images using a suitable platform for delivery, transmitting hundreds of images daily from our award-winning network of photojournalists and content partners. We provide a comprehensive daily photo report of global sports news events, giving our members and clients an array of options to suit their creative choices.
Direct Wire Feed—All images flow directly to a central location within a member/client newsroom for real-time delivery. This allows the images to move without the member/client needing to access and download images from the internet, since the images flow directly into their internal system. Many newspapers and deadline media prefer this platform for delivery for simplicity and speed. Our 24/7 picture desk provides member/client support across all our delivery platforms.
Web Interface—Through our website, USA TODAY Sports Images allows pre-qualified members of the media to access, search, license and download images on a per-picture basis, or through a subscription service that allows high-volume users to license images without delay. Our robust search engine allows users to download images to their desktop within seconds, and users can also load images to Lightbox before downloading. This feature allows them to view and edit online before deciding which image to use, which is a terrific option for editors and researchers who need to see the full picture before making a creative choice.
Custom Photo Research—Our picture desk support allows member/clients to make any special requests and to research our historical archive.
Historical Database & Collections—Our rich image database maintains an extensive collection of iconic and historical sports images. These images can be easily researched in our database, licensed and downloaded (additional fees apply to our historical images). Contact your USA TODAY Sports Images account representative or our picture desk support team for details. For a more comprehensive look at our historical imagery, see our Historical Images page.
Our network of photographers can be commissioned for special requests and assignment photography; simply send a request to our picture desk or through your account representative.
