Announcement of the launch of GDI Media Limited: a content licensing agency significantly owned by its contributors that will be listed on AIM, a leading international stock exchange based in London.

The formation of GDI Media Limited (GDI) was announced by Chares Taylor, managing director.

GDI will be a photographic, video, audio, vector and illustration content licensing company, operating both traditional rights’ managed and microstock business models from offices around the world. It aims to become a challenger brand to leading content licensing companies such as Getty Images and Shutterstock.

The company’s capital structure is a key factor that is designed to give GDI the scale of content, technological and financial resources to compete effectively. Founding equity participation is open to potential contributors be they individuals or editorial agencies.

GDI is in advanced discussions with over 40 leading editorial agencies from around the world. Their participation is contingent on listing on AIM, which is expected to happen towards the end of 2014. Successful inclusion of these agencies will result in a company with extensive, world-class content covering most developed markets.
