Shutterstock is committed to ensuring our content is representative of a globally diverse world—offering a range of perspectives in both our visuals and the artists who create them. Through The Create Fund, we provide historically excluded artists with financial and professional support to help close access gaps, fill content gaps, and further diversity and inclusion within our content library and our contributor network.
Create Fund Artist Investment Program
Our Create Fund Artist Investment Program concentrates on artists from diverse backgrounds that can help us fill content gaps in specific areas. Selected artists receive a cash grant, production, and marketing support, as well as other hands-on help needed to successfully complete their projects.
