INHF is a statewide, member-supported nonprofit organization that protects Iowa’s land, water and wildlife. Therefore, we require that photographers submit photos taken in Iowa that depict the beauty and diversity of Iowa's wild places.
Please note the pay rates have recently changed.
*extra $200 if used for cover
The donated use of photos is always welcome and appreciated. INHF will enter an in-kind charitable donation in your name and provide you an acknowledgement letter. Your gift value will be based on the pay rates above, and it may be tax deductible. Your gift makes you eligible to receive INHF member benefits.
If you submit photos to INHF, please expect to fill out a W9 in the event that your photos are chosen for publication. Without a W9 on file, INHF will not be able to use your photographs. A W9 form will be sent to you upon photo submission. If you have questions about your W9 form, you can contact Sydney Algreen-Hunter, communications assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org or 515-288-1846.
If you prefer that your photos be not used for some of the above uses (or want to talk about it first), please indicate this with your submission.
We love receiving submissions from photographers across the state of Iowa's most beautiful places, creatures and natural happenings. We occasionally have a lack of certain types of images or simply would love to see more of a particular place or season.
We prefer to receive high-quality photos on a flash drive or disk accompanied by a color contact sheet.
