It has been a few months since USA Wrestling has posted a Photo Contest on its website. Now seems like a great time to get this back to doing this on a regular basis.

Every issue of USA Wrestler, the official magazine of USA Wrestling, there is a photo contest of wrestling images sent in by our member wrestling families. In most editions, three nice photos are published for the wrestling community to enjoy. Photos are sent in all year, and many are not chosen for the magazine, but are some pretty sweet wrestling images. Our website contest is allowing us to share even more great images around the nation.

Got a great wrestling image? Please send it in!!!

When you send them, please tell us who is in the picture, where the photo was taken, and who the photographer is. We want to have a great caption to go with the image.

USA Wrestler is seeking your best wrestling photography for publication in a future issue of the magazine, or to be posted on or on USA Wrestling’s Instagram account. USA Wrestling reserves the right to publish all materials submitted for the Photo Contest with no restrictions! E-mail photos to:

Here are 10 photos that USA Wrestling received recently and are proud to share. Keep them coming, please.
