Posted on 10/17/2018 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Shutterstock, Inc. has announced that Editorial content is now available for license on its eCommerce Platform. Shutterstock Editorial offers images that capture the world around us, including a live feed of curated news, sports, entertainment and royal family images, along with access to a multi-decade archive of iconic images. Previously available only to Enterprise customers with Shutterstock Premier accounts, this collection is now available to all Shutterstock customers through Shutterstock.com/editorial.

Shutterstock Editorial distributes images from strategic partners including the Associated Press (AP), the european pressphoto agency (epa), BFA and Variety as well as royalty-based contributors and staff photographers. Shutterstock combines this content with its unique technical capabilities to provide customers with timely, iconic imagery when they need it. In addition to its main content library of over 200 million images and 10 million video clips, Shutterstock’s comprehensive Editorial collection contains over 40 million images and publishes, on average, more than 700,000 images per month.

“Shutterstock continues to see growing global demand in its editorial business. Our team alone has covered over 6,500 events last year and we continue to work with world-class partners who help to amplify that number, capturing the events as they are happening,” said Jon Oringer, Founder and CEO of Shutterstock. “We are thrilled to expand this offering beyond our enterprise clients to all of Shutterstock’s 1.8 million customers around the world.”



Shutterstock’s progress in editorial imagery began in 2015 with the acquisition of UK based Rex Features, the largest independently owned photographic press agency in Europe. Later that year, Shutterstock and Penske Media Corporation (PMC) formed an exclusive global distribution partnership including images from PMC’s legendary, 100-year-old publications Variety and WWD. The Editorial collection has since expanded further through partnerships, acquisitions and milestone distribution deals with The AP, epa, The Kobal Collection, The Art Archive and the Football Association. Shutterstock’s comprehensive team of talented photographers include award-winning sports photographers, renowned Royal photographers, and leading entertainment photographers.

With this new offering, eCommerce users are now able to purchase Editorial content at flat pricing with a simple license. Packages include single image and 25 image pack options.
