NEW YORK, November 18 /PRNewswire/ -- It has been an exciting year for Shutterstock, the world's largest subscription-based stock photo agency, thanks to the rapid growth of its innovative editorial photo program: Shutterstock On The Red Carpet.
In 2009, Shutterstock On The Red Carpet covered many notable events worldwide, including Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, the U.S. Open tennis tournament, Madonna's Sticky Sweet Tour, The Black Crowes Tour, the Major League Soccer Semifinal match between Chivas USA and the Los Angeles Galaxy, and the Tribeca Film Festival.

Shutterstock is the only online stock image agency to offer this unique service, which assists its global network of photographers in securing press passes to the hottest events in the world of news, sports, and entertainment. Thanks to the tremendous success of the program, the amount of photographers and event organizers who participate continues to rapidly expand. In fact, since Shutterstock On The Red Carpet launched, the number of covered events has grown from two in 2007 to 127 so far in 2009. Based on the number of exciting events in the pipeline, Shutterstock projects covering a total of 175 events this year.
The program, which is open to Shutterstock's submitter base of more than 200,000 talented photographers, has produced high quality editorial photos that set Shutterstock apart in the highly competitive online stock photo marketplace.
Given that Shutterstock On The Red Carpet is unique in the international stock photo marketplace, it's a key differentiator for buyers who seek affordable, premium stock photos of newsworthy events happening around the world, said Adam Riggs, president and CFO of Shutterstock.
