Uploading Professional Sporting Events Media

Any media of game play from sports events sanctioned by the NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, NCAA, FIFA, Olympics, NASCAR, Formula1, Premier League, Australian Football League, Tour de France, and any other similar governing bodies will not be accepted at Pond5. If you have obtained credentials to cover a major sports event it generally does not give you the right to resell that content in our marketplace, however, if you are able to secure permission, in writing, from the appropriate sports league/governing body that would allow Pond5 to resell that content, forward the release to Pond5 and we can include it as an attachment.

Sports media from local high schools and non-NCAA sanctioned events do not have all of the strict restrictions that apply to major sports events, but you must always get permission to film in a local high school or university, especially if you are filming minors.
