Panpa Bulletin : February 2006
New access to celebrity and editorial imagery online US Bureau, Getty Images has launched 'Exclusive by Getty Im- ages', a premier online solution for magazine and newspaper customers seeking to differenti- ate their publications with celeb- rity portraiture, reportage features and editorial specials from world- class photographers not available anywhere else. To simplify the process of se- curing global and territorial rights all content is located on a secure platform at http://www.getty- images.com/exclusive. The site allows for users to personalise features such as light boxes, book- marks and customisable views. Created by a growing network of elite photographers including international celebrity shooter Lorenzo Agius, renowned photo- journalist Tom Stoddart and Pu- litzer Prize-winner David Turnley, Exclusive imagery is carefully pro- duced and edited to meet specific customer needs. "Tom Stoddart is at the fore- front of committed photojour- nalists hugely respected by those who work with him," said Gra- ham Wood, director of photog- raphy, The Times Magazine. "He consistently puts his subjects' in- terests before his own as he travels the world witnessing and record- ing history unfold before him. We are thrilled to now have greater access to his outstanding materi- al, on an exclusive basis, through Getty Images." Recent 'Exclusive' celebrity portraiture includes Madonna, Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie and Gwen Stefani, while reportage features have focused on topics such as the disposal of unsecured munitions and ordinance in Iraq and the effects of urbanisation on the Asian Elephant. "The positive industry response to our editorial business affords us the opportunity to offer this com- pletely new product," said Steve Blogg, director of photography, editorial contributors, EMEA. In addition to Blogg, Exclusive is being managed by industry vet- erans Nick Bull, director of pho- tography, celebrity portraiture, and David Laidler, director of photography, editorial contribu- tors, Americas. Getty Images are headquartered in Seattle and serve customers in more than 100 countries. A selection of exclusive and reportage celebrity images. Successful switch to mutual contributions START of the New Year saw an end to the phasing in of the New Zealand Press Association's member newspapers' mutual contribution of news and sports copy. The final switch to a commercial model of operation meant the national news agency staff of 42 journalists, plus stringers, supplied all national and local news for the wire service clients. A few small independent newspapers are filing copy on a commission basis and during the settling in process newspapers outside of Wellington and Christchurch are providing basic court reportage. NZPA editor Nick Brown told the PANPA Bulletin that the change went without serious hitch. A couple of freelancers 'have let us down,' but newspapers did not telephone to complain. Wellington head office staff are now working a revised roster system with the first shift starting at5amoranhourandahalf earlier than before the change to the commercial model. News files for morning newspapers are completed earlier in the evening unless there is late-breaking news, and fewer staff works late at night. As usual, a staff member works through the night monitoring and processing cable news. Demand has been picking up gradually for NZPA's new image services since the September launch, said Brown. The services include staff originated photographs, graphics, cartoons and camera-ready pages. Brown gave the example of 10 newspapers buying the agency package of camera-ready feature pages reviewing the past year's national and international news, politics, business, and sports. "We always knew it [the commercial model] was going to be pretty tough," said Brown, "but we have learnt we can provide a quick, comprehensive news service with limited resources." Fairfax sacks newsagents AS part of an ongoing review of the performance of newsagents, Fairfax has terminated territorial distribution agreements with five Sydney newsagents. The company, publisher of The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and The Australian Financial Re- view, discussed the cancellation of the agreements with the Aus- tralian Newsagents' Federation. Fairfax is now looking at the track record of other newsagents "not meeting expectations." Currently, there are more than 30 distributors in NSW who average deliveries of fewer than 25 a day. According to the ANF, various reasons relating to contractual breaches and poor performance triggered the termination of the contracts with the five Sydney agents. "For example, one newsagent had declined in sales by 60 per cent from 2002 when a change in ownership occurred." 10 | PANPA BULLETIN February 2006 NEWS
