When contributors create a Shutterstock account via, they are asked to submit 10 images for review. If a contributor is leaving exclusivity to submit to Shutterstock, we ask that they write a note to the reviewer mentioning their exclusive status with a link to their portfolio.

Alternately, if you are a videographer with a collection of 500 or more clips, please email us at and let us know how many clips you have and what type of content it is. If you have a link to your work online, please provide it.  Based on the nature of your request, we may be able to provide some additional submission assistance.

Please review the terms of your agreement to make sure you are not breaching it.
