Customers have access to the world’s most compelling editorial and creative imagery in the market
Seattle, Washington (January, 2012) - Corbis Images (www.corbisimages.com) and The Associated Press ( www.ap.org) today launched their Media offering that provides customers unprecedented access to more than 10 million images covering an unparalleled range of breaking news, sports and entertainment, archival and creative images.
This comprehensive cross-distribution partnership combines the strengths of two of the world's leading organizations for compelling and authoritative imagery. Corbis has traditionally led the industry in advertising, commercial and archival images, while The Associated Press is the industry leader in breaking news, sports and entertainment, and an archival news photo collection dating back more than 90 years. Beginning today, customers have access to the industry's most comprehensive, end-to-end editorial offering available today across many subjects and industry verticals.
AP Images, the commercial photo licensing division of The Associated Press, will make available thousands of breaking news, sports, and entertainment images each day and more than 5 million archival photos. AP, a not-for-profit cooperative headquartered in New York, has won 30 Pulitzer Prizes for its photography.
"With The Associated Press' breaking content and venerable collection Corbis will provide its customers with the most differentiated editorial offering available in the market today," said Corbis' SVP of Media Products, Barak Ronen.
"Combining AP's award-winning collection of breaking news and other editorial photography with Corbis' extraordinary collection of creative and historical imagery provides our customers access to the most comprehensive content available anywhere," said AP Images Vice President, Fernando Ferre.
Under the agreement, Corbis images will be available on AP Images' portal, www.apimages.com/corbis.aspx, and AP photographs will be available on the Corbis website at www.corbisimages.com. These collections will be available on the two sites beginning today for customers in the United States.
