More than 1 million artists, photographers, videographers and musicians around the world license their work through Shutterstock
Shutterstock, Inc., a leading global technology company offering a creative platform for high-quality content, tools and services, announced that its contributor base has reached $1 billion in earnings paid. The company released its Contributor Earnings Report, which breaks down the massive achievement shared among its global community of artists, photographers, videographers and musicians. The report showcases an overview of earnings by region, a snapshot of high-growth countries and features a selection of contributors who helped make the achievement possible.
Over 1 million contributors across Shutterstock, Shutterstock Editorial, Shutterstock Custom, Bigstock, Offset, and PremiumBeat are responsible for making more than 300 million images, 16 million videos and 24 million music tracks available on the platform. Each time an image, video clip or music track is licensed through Shutterstock, the contributor behind that content earns money.
