We have so much to say about Shutterstock, and we’re saying it in so many places. In print, online, and at events, we never stop spreading the word about what makes Shutterstock great. And now we’re looking for fresh ideas from you.

Today, I’m excited to announce that we’re partnering with Tongal to create 4 local video spots promoting Shutterstock in the U.S., India, Brazil and Germany. You’re invited to participate — and you could claim a share of $50,000 in awards!

Tongal is global community of creative individuals, videographers, and production studios that creates videos for some of the world’s most loved brands, including LEGO, Ford, and Pringles. We’re thrilled to kick off our first project with Tongal, offering that community the chance to help tell the Shutterstock story in a 30-second video. You don’t even need to be a videographer to participate — the first round simply involves submitting a 140-character idea.

Over and over again, we find that the people who know Shutterstock best are you, our customers and contributors. So, if you’re interested in participating or just want to learn more, please visit http://tongal.com/project/shutterstock. I can’t wait to see what develops!
