Announcement from Gerber Global Media Content (Gerber GMC) in cooperation with PhotoBizCoach Beate Chelette
Feature Story Submission invitation for Web Media Content to all photographers!!
Zurich/Los Angeles June 1, 2013
Livio Gerber (zapaimages) and PhotoBizCoach Beate Chelette are announcing the launch of Gerber Global Media Content, an image licensing company dedicated to packaged photo and text stories for digital media outlets. All photographers with relevant content are invited to submit their stories and features.
What exactly is Gerber Global Media Content? It is far more than Editorial usage of features and includes, Advertising, Websites, eReaders, smart phones and tablets. Gerber Global Media Content offers content for all things digital.
Mobile traffic already makes up 13% of total web traffic. 50% of adults use a smart phone and 29% have tablets or eReaders. Two billion computers are connected and six billion mobile connections are in use worldwide, a number expected to grow to 15 billion by 2015. Accordingly, the demand for web content and feature stories across all genres has increased dramatically and will continue to do so.
From entertainment and celebrity, sports, travel and culture, living and interiors, news, health and general interest stories – the demand for fast and easy stories to feature is virtually exploding.
Many photographers and authors have stories that can’t be properly utilized because most traditional licensing companies require long-term contracts and continuous feed of stories. This loophole has now been closed by Gerber Global Media Content by offering compelling content to a broad variety of users across all platforms.
Gerber Global Media Content accepts single or multiple stories and licensing agreements are issued per story. Creatives upload submissions via FTP. Upon acceptance, a per feature agreement is issued and after processing, your story goes into immediate global distribution.
If you are interested in submitting your features for consideration, please download our submission forms that contain the subject categories and how to get your work seen and licensed:
