Shutterstock, the stock photo company, has just opened up a programme for in-app contributor registrations on iOS and Android. Available in 21 languages, it lets creatives, videographers and photographers earn money from their content using the Shutterstock Contributor app.

After a quick sign-up, contributors are able to upload content straight away.

When a customer is interested in a photo or video, creatives receive instant push notifications to let them know. They can also monitor sales and commissions from within the app.

“Our growing base of over 650,000 contributors around the world upload nearly half a million assets from the Shutterstock Contributor app every month,” explained Jon Oringer, founder and CEO of Shutterstock. “We’re thrilled to enhance the in-app experience for today’s generation of highly-visual, mobile-first users. Now iOS and Android users can sign-up to become a contributor straight from the app and start making money from their mobile imagery instantly.”

At the same time, the company introduced changes to its main app that make it easier to search for contributor content.

Shutterstock isn’t the only company which is bolstering its options for creators and providing monetary rewards. Facebook recently launched a programme for video creators and provides monetisation to both publishers and creators.
