Alamy has received an award commending the excellence of its live news and stock imagery and its ability to meet the demands of the publishing industries.
Alamy has been awarded a Stationers’ Company Warrant for the excellence of its live news and stock imagery. The award acknowledges Alamy’s ongoing ability to respond to and meet the changing demands of the newspaper, magazine and publishing industries, providing images of an appropriate quality at a competitive price.
Stationers’ Warrants are awarded to products or services in recognition of product excellence or innovation in a variety of industries. Alamy was one of five new award winners at the 2017 ceremony, which took place on 9th October.
Mike James, the Chairman of the Warrants Committee stated that there was “a record number of applicants for the warrant and the judging was interesting. At times the discussions were quite heated, and it was great to see the passion of the judging committee. At the conclusion of the judging it was decided to award new warrants to 5 products with a further 4 products having their warrants extended for another year”.
