questions

F.A.Q.

HOW DOES THE WIRE WORK ?
Once the online form has been filled, each Member Association will receive a e-mail with an account (up to three acounts per MA) to access the wire with a specific login and a password which will give them access to our live platform of photos. Photos are updated live from each event, each day as the day goes by (the frequency depends on the number of matches, the internet speed, etc), but images are usually uploaded between 1 to 4 hours after each match is finished, sometimes sooner (after each final for instance)
HOW TO DOWNLOAD IMAGES FROM THE WIRE ?
You can simply use the search tool once you have logged in. You can search for a specific player using his/her official name (the one on tournament software), or the country of your MA and « submit ». The lastest images will show up first. You can then download the low resolution images by clicking on the « L » icon (for direct download of just one image) or on the « L »icon with the caddy icon, if you want to download more than one image at the time. Once you have selected all the images you need, you can then go and check out your cart and download a zip folder with all images.
WHAT IS COVERED BY BADMINTONPHOTO IN EACH TOURNAMENT ?
As we can not cover all matches, the contract with BWF guarantees the following :
Day 1: 100 photos (if only qualifiers, however depending on number of matches in qualification rounds); 150 photos (if first-round matches also)
Days 2 and 3: 130 photos daily (primarily good action shots; some ‘celebration’ shots; both players/pairs if a match is covered; as many upsets as possible)
Days 4-6: 120 photos daily (on average minimum 60% of all quarter-finals; 75% all semi-finals (all winners) and 100% of finals – including all presentations)
Major Events: 130 photos daily (on average minimum all quarter-finals; all semi-finals and finals – including all presentations)
Number of players: an average of minimum 70 different players (including pairs) over the first two days (qualifiers and first rounds) assuming a full draw of 32 in each of the five categories.
CAN WE ASK BADMINTONPHOTO TO SHOOT OUR PLAYERS/OFFICIALS SPECIFICALLY ?
Unfortunately, as we have only one photographer per event (except major BWF Events), it is impossible to satisfy all requests, but we will try to have a good balance of each nation for random players, on top of the minimal requests included in our contract with BWF – for upsets and quarter finals, semi finals and finals. So, direct requests can not be made directly to Badmintonphoto. However, should you need something specific for a particular event, feel free to contact the communication staff at BWF, who will forward us your request when possible.
WHAT CAN MEMBER ASSOCIATIONS DO WITH BP’s IMAGES ?
- The only use allowed with this free access is to use our low resolution images with watermark on all your online platforms for live or archive news (official website, tournament website, all social network platforms)
WHAT MEMBER ASSOCIATIONS CAN NOT DO :
- Use our images for printing purposes
- Give our images to any third party (players, sponsors, clubs, officials, private leagues – PBL, Superliga, China League, Purple League, etc - or any commercial brands)
- Give our images to media (except when a high resolution image is sent together with a press release with mandatory copyright mention)
- Use our images for commercial purposes (items sold such as merchandise, clothing, programs, etc)
CAN MEDIA USE BP’s IMAGES ?
Media work is not included in this free offer so you may not send our images to media for them to use. For specific requests or needs, you may buy authors rights for such use as special rate for MA’s. Please contact Badmintonphoto raphael.sachetat@badmintonphoto.com)
CAN WE USE IMAGES OF PLAYERS THAT ARE NOT FROM OUR MA ?
Yes, all images are ok for you to use (other players, non playing images, etc). This is a good tool also to put live news on your website with photos of the world’s top stars, but you can also use illustration images. You can find those non playing images under different keywords such as « shuttlecock, racket, injury, medical, indoor, outdoor, stadium » etc)
CAN MEDIA USE BP’s IMAGES ?
Media work is not included in this free offer so you may not send our images to media for them to use. For specific requests or needs, you may buy authors rights for such use as special rate for MA’s. Please contact Badmintonphoto (raphael.sachetat@badmintonphoto.com)
WHAT IF WE WANT TO USE IMAGES FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES ?
If your Member Association wishes to make some profits and, for example, wants to sell goodies or programs using our images, then the use becomes a commercial use, and rights have to be cleared, both with Badmintonphoto (authors rights), but also with the players (image rights). If a third party (a sponsor, commercial brand, etc) wants to use our images, please send them our contact and we will send them our list of prices.
If you have any questions, doubt, send us an email : raphael.sachetat@badmintonphoto.com We hope that you will enjoy our services for the 4 years to come !
