CEPIC stands for the Coordination of European Picture Agencies Stock, Press and Heritage and aims to be the centre of the picture industry.

As the Center of the Picture Industry, CEPIC federates 600 picture agencies and photo libraries in 20 countries across Europe, both within and outside the European Union. It has affiliates in North America and Asia. CEPIC’s membership includes large and smaller stock photo libraries, major photo news agencies, art galleries and museums, video companies. CEPIC has among its members the big global players – such as Getty, Shutterstock or Reuters. Through this membership, CEPIC represents more than 250.000 authors in direct licensing. The annual CEPIC Congress extends CEPIC’s network on all five continents. It is the largest global gathering of the international photo community representing 90% of the market worldwide.

We will be in attendance to continue to nurture our relationships with three full days of meetings with old and new connections.

We are extremely excited to also be utilising our time at the congress, by launching a new product that makes the integration of SmartFrame by converting, storing and then delivering SmartFrames on a large scale basis even more simply than ever before. Stay Tuned!

Our CEO, Robert Sewell will be attending along with our Business Development Director, Peter Shackleton
