We offer original ISSF images for reproduction at no cost, but permission is required for certain uses. All ISSF photos must retain the ISSF copyright mark and photographer credit. Please read our guidelines below before using any of the images in our photo library.

Photo Permission Guidelines

Prior written permission is required to reproduce ISSF photos in print or electronic format— including CDs, DVDs, web sites, videos, and exhibits. Such permissions are granted on a one-time, non-exclusive basis and may be renewed.

Written permission is, however, not required for reproduction of photo material as allowed by Fair Use. (Fair Use applies solely to scholarly, academic, non-profit, or journalistic use of properly credited ISSF photos.)

Contact us to receive photo licensing permission.


ISSF photographs are the property of ISSF, which holds all rights in connection with their usage. ISSF photos cannot be altered, sold, redistributed or used to create derivative works.


All ISSF photos, whether used in print, electronic or online format, must retain the ISSF copyright mark and photographer credit — or be credited in the corresponding photo caption and in credits section as follows: ISSF Photo by [name of photographer] (if available).

Charges and Fees

Select ISSF digital images are downloadable from the Photo Library section below at no charge. ISSF does not offer photographic prints.
