Triple Celebration for Image Source

October 26, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Media News
Image Source, the world's leading independent producer of royalty free stock photography, is delighted to announce its celebration of three important milestones. The company has recently added its 100,000th image to the library; the company has been accredited with international quality standard ISO 9001; and the company features in the recently published Best Companies Guide 2007, the only photo library to do so.

“These are fantastic achievements for a company as young as Image Source”, said Christina Vaughan, Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “We are only seven years old but we have never deviated from our commitment to strong creative, quality and management standards. It is very satisfying to experience these successes and they are a testament to the hard working and talented staff, photographers and partners we have.”

The 100,000 image is IE050-084 (“Hurdler”) and this barrier was broken soon after Image Source was awarded the prestigious ISO 9001 accreditation, the internationally recognised standard for an organisation's internal Quality Management. Image Source featured in the ‘Ones to Watch’ section of the Best Companies Guide 2007, the leading guide to the top UK companies. Using feedback directly from employees, the Best Companies Guide measures employee engagement across eight key areas and produces an index score to provide a rank. Image Source is the only photo library in the guide.

“There is no denying that so far 2007 has been a tough year in our industry for many companies but we continue to buck the trend”, said Duncan Grossart, Image Source CEO. “We’re building momentum as we approach 2008 and looking forward to using these achievements as a springboard to even bigger and better things.”

Image Source also recently launched the largest marketing campaign in its history. The Open Your Eyes campaign features a microsite at with a range of innovative creative and design functions.
