From Oscar-winning motion pictures to internationally acclaimed advertisements, Getty Images video is widely used across broadcast, feature film, corporate communication, new media and education.

Getty Images has several house collections including rights-ready collections, one80, Image Bank Film, Iconica Video and Archive Films as well as royalty-free collections, Digital Vision and Photodisc. You may be offered the opportunity to submit your material to one of these collections if it meets their unique creative direction.

What type of video are we looking for?
We seek dynamic and exceptional videos. Clips with strong conceptual appeal and an emotional connection have the greatest power to make multiple, global sales. All contemporary videos should be shot in a fresh and innovative fashion. In addition to contemporary material, we're always interested in unique and powerful editorial and archival footage.

All video clips need to fully meet our technical requirements, be model and/or property released where needed and not be currently available for license with any other stock agency.

Technical Requirements
To successfully submit, we require finished HD QuickTime movies in the Apple Pro Res HQ 422 or Photo-Jpeg codecs to be uploaded to our online portal.

Here are the main points:
- We accept content captured on 4k (ultra high definition), high definition, or on film and transferred to high definition.
- Content can be submitted digitally through our online portal.
- Model and Property releases are required with all clips where relevant and must be uploaded in digital format.
- Metadata (also known as captioning) must also be supplied to us digitally.
