Shutterstock Images LLC, a leading global provider of high-quality stock photography, vectors, illustrations and footage, today announced a yearlong partnership with TED, the non-profit dedicated to ideas worth spreading. This partnership connects the two creative brands to encourage more dynamic, visual presentations from the world’s most inspired thinkers. As part of this partnership, Shutterstock is providing complimentary subscriptions to speakers at TED2012 and TEDGlobal2012.
“Shutterstock was built around sharing and supporting creativity, and we are thrilled to partner with an organization like TED that has a strong reputation for sparking groundbreaking ideas and influencing millions around the world,” said Shutterstock Founder and CEO Jon Oringer. “A diverse group of TED speakers have started to enhance their presentations with visuals from Shutterstock, and we’re excited to be a part of this innovative, pacesetting platform.”
In addition to providing conference speakers with visuals, Shutterstock has created a multi-user account for the TED organization for ongoing use, and will provide all attendees at TED2012 events with a free, one-month subscription.
Shutterstock has previously supported TEDxDanubia, a TED event taking place in Turkey and the 2012 partnership builds on the initial collaboration.
