Global digital media company Getty Images partners with LightRocket to distribute over 50,000 international images

Singapore – 12 December 2013: LightRocket, a comprehensive online service for serious enthusiast and professional photographers, and Getty Images, one of the world's leading digital media companies, have today announced a partnership that sees Getty Images become a key distribution partner for LightRocket, distributing select members' content around the world. 

The represented content spans a wide variety of global subject matter, from Tibetan Festivals through to everyday life in London. LightRocket also brings the latest images from regional news events, such as the plight of Rohingya Refugees in Burma and the recent Anti-government Protests in Thailand to build on Getty Images' extensive portfolio of editorial assets, which is currently growing by 10,000 to 15,000 images each day. 

Stuart Hannagan, VP, Editorial, APAC at Getty Images comments: " Our relationship with LightRocket complements and expands upon Getty Images' already extensive archive of over 90 million images and will provide our local and global customer base with access to over 50,000 images from the collection”. 

"As our customers' need for a wide range of engaging visual content continues to grow, the LightRocket collection will provide customers with access to an even broader selection of culturally diverse Asian and international imagery.” 

The partnership provides LightRocket's premium annual members with a unique opportunity to apply to become Getty Images contributors direct from LightRocket's dedicated Getty Images page (http://www.lightrocket.com/getty). Utilising a feed from LightRocket's online portal, members can upload and distribute images worldwide via Getty Images' global platform, www.gettyimages.com, reaching business customers in over 200 countries. 

LightRocket was launched earlier this year by the founders of OnAsia Images, an Asia-based media company that was originally established in 2001. LightRocket is seeing fast growth as new members sign up around the world. 

We are very happy to be partnering with Getty Images,” comments LightRocket co-founder and CEO Peter Charlesworth. "Not only does this serve as a validation of the quality of our existing archive, it also creates a fantastic opportunity for our most talented members.” 

Getty Images presence in Asia Pacific continues to grow, with nine offices across the region spanning Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Mumbai, New Delhi, Tokyo, Sydney, Auckland and, soon, Taipei. A leading global creator and distributor of editorial content, Getty Images is currently strengthening its network of contributing photographers across South-East Asia, and covering a greater number of local sports, news and entertainment events than ever before.
