iStock Photo Tenth Anniversary

iStockphoto was founded in 2000, pioneering the micropayment photography business model, and has become one of the most successful user-generated content sites in the world. The company pays out more than $1.6 million weekly in artist royalties and offers millions of vetted, royalty-free photos, illustrations, video, audio and Flash files. Perhaps most important, istockphoto has reshaped the way professional graphic designers, and other art and photobuyers, work with and think about digital imagery and workflow. A microsite is dedicated to anniversary activities. Kelly Thompson, founder and now COO of istockphoto says that it is not the organization's nature to blow its own horn, but that it was important to recognize all the contributors and participants who have become part of its close-knit community.
