"Since January, we have added over 2 million new royalty-free images to our library, and our weekly library growth rate has recently reached more than 70,000 new images per week," said Jon Oringer, founder and CEO of Shutterstock. "We are extremely proud to reach the 5 million image mark, especially while maintaining our stringent standards for accepting new images. We are certainly grateful to our global base of more than 120,000 talented submitters who provide our subscribers with a steady pipeline of great creative content."
Shutterstock's diverse library provides a wealth of fresh creative and editorial content, rivaling traditional stock photography agencies, yet at far lower prices. This has allowed the company to flourish despite the current worldwide economic downturn.
"As media companies and creative firms look for ways to save money, more and more decision makers are choosing Shutterstock to provide high quality stock images at significant savings," said Adam Riggs, president of Shutterstock. "Since launching Shutterstock, we have remained committed to providing the best content at affordable prices. That's why we're confident that we will continue to meet the demands of today's marketplace."
