• 900,000 stock images added in June making it a record month for submissions
• Largest collection of hi-res images online available to purchase
Independent picture giant, Alamy, reaches 25 million making it the largest online collection of stock images in the world. Alamy has expanded its rich and diverse collection of stock photos by 25 percent in just 10 months, putting it comfortably ahead of the published figures of its competitors.
Alan Capel, head of content at Alamy, commented: “What’s been refreshing this month is that the images have come in from a wide variety of suppliers. We’ve taken in work from emerging photographers, seasoned professionals and world renowned picture agencies, proving that supplying to Alamy is still a no-brainer for producers of quality photography.”
Rachel Wakefield, head of sales at Alamy, added: “It’s great to see further work from existing contributors such as National Geographic, Image Source and Corbis as well as exciting material from new recruits such as VintageMedStock from the US and Offside Sports from the UK. With 30,000 images added daily in June our customers had an unprecedented wealth of fresh content to enjoy every day”.
