With the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Brazil looming Getty Images are back in buying mode.
Getty Images has acquired 100% ownership of G&S Imagens do Brasil Ltda, its third party distributor in Brazil. Trading under the name of Getty Images do Brasil, G&S Imagens has been the primary distributor of Getty Images’ creative and editorial content in the Brazilian market since 2008 and has been a key contributor to Getty Images’ success in the fast-growing region.
“As worldwide demand for content across multiple channels and platforms continues to increase, we are delighted to strengthen our ability to fully serve the Brazilian market,” said Jonathan Klein, Getty Images co-founder and Chief Executive Officer. “The need for both local and global content remains strong in Brazil and across Latin America, as the region continues to develop and grow.”
The acquisition will provide customers in Brazil with a greater selection of high quality and relevant creative and editorial content than ever before, as well as expanded access to services such as photo assignment and digital asset management.
Getty Images will be exhibiting at Fotofringe London April 24
