IMPORTANT CREDENTIAL REMINDERS – For the 11-Player Football Finals – all media wishing to attend – including outlets with Tournament Media Passes – must fill out the online form and submit 4 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 19.  The form can be found on the Credentials page of the website.

The deadline for applying for Broadcast rights for this weekend's games is 4 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 19.

Outlets are advised to remind any freelance photographers they hire to cover MHSAA Tournaments that the images are the property of the outlet – not of the individual photographer – and any distribution of those images must be consistent with the outlet’s policies.  This is one of those times of year where a “team” photographer may ask for help in securing a photo pass – remind them the images are your property as a condition of requesting and using the pass.
