Following Shutterstock’s announcement to distribute Associated Press content in the US last March (see PAN article), they will now be doing the same for AP in the UK .
“Following our successful collaboration in the US, this extended deal with AP allows us to reach new parts of the market we haven’t yet been able to access and acknowledges the strong demand for Shutterstock’s editorial content world-wide,” said Ben Pfeifer, SVP of business development at Shutterstock. “Having worked with AP for over nine months now, we’re looking forward to our continued relationship with the world’s most prominent provider of news content.”
“Shutterstock has deeply impressed us with their continual innovation, that has transformed editorial distribution. By working with Shutterstock in the UK, we will be able to bring our content to new market sectors,” said Alwyn Lindsey, AP’s Vice President of Sales for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. “Our global network of photographers will continue to deliver timely content from red carpets to runways, conflicts to elections, shaping the way we see the world.”
