Global stock photography and media content platform Shutterstock has announced the renewal of its agreement with The Associated Press to distribute AP’s daily global photo output for license to customers based in the US, UK and Ireland.

The three-year deal continues to give Shutterstock customers access to approximately 3,000 images daily, from breaking news to red carpets to live sporting events, as well as provides access to iconic news images from the vast AP Archive.

AP is a leading global news agency, delivering up-to-the-minute news, sports and entertainment images worldwide, including from every statehouse in the US. 

An independent, not-for-profit news organisation with staffers in more than 250 locations around the world, AP is a recognised and globally trusted source for news as it happens.

“We are pleased to be able to extend our collaboration with AP and offer their award-winning images to our customers in the US, UK and Ireland,” said Donna Granato, General Manager of Shutterstock Editorial. 

“AP has a clear focus on newsgathering and is committed to the highest standards of objective, accurate journalism. AP’s content is trusted globally and is in high demand among newsrooms and media outlets around the world.”

Ted Mendelsohn, AP vice president for commercial and digital markets said he was delighted to see the relationship continue: “AP’s news content and Shutterstock’s strength in technology and visual discovery are a terrific match.”
