I completed the mapping from the current state of *IPTC Newscode Media*
https://github.com/schemaorg/schemaorg/issues/280#issuecomment-412632555

I did not do all the mapping for *IPTC Newscode Genres* /newscodes/genre
because things there were much more "news like" and harder to fit into
existing Wikidata topics where many would be brand new topics in Wikidata
against a "newsroom" context or better fitting into Wikidata's upcoming
Lexemes/Senses.  But some /newscodes/genre were done where it was
straightforward such as http://cv.iptc.org/newscodes/genre/Synopsis -->
https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q1427116

*IPTC Newscode Genre* http://cv.iptc.org/newscodes/genre/
was not fully mapped and remains to be completed, but was left for Brendan
Quinn and his team to clean up..since they were in the middle of updating
things for Media Topics as well.  You'll have to ask Brendan what the
status is for /newscodes/genre and if they have plans to update now or
later... but anyone can do the mapping in Wikidata itself once Brendan
provides feedback.
