"ZUMA is proud to offer images from Reuters network of 600 award-winning photojournalists, including some of my favorite photo-journalists working in the world today: Lucy Nicholson, Goran Tomasevic and Yannis Behrakis, whose work is truly amazing and whose powerful images I have long admired. I am excited to add Reuters archive content to ZUMA's strong premium Wire Service. With our award winning picture Editors, among them: James K. Colton (Managing Editor of ThePicturesofTheDay.com) as well as Ruaridh I. Stewart (Managing Editor of zReportage.com) and Julie Rogers (Assignment Editor), all working together with our top sales team, ZUMA strives to curate the best news images of the day, every day," said Scott Mc Kiernan, Founder and CEO of ZUMA Press, Inc.

Adding Reuters just takes that mission to a higher level! We are passionate about the role of imagery as an agent for change and bringing stories that need to be told to the world," McKiernan continued.
