PRINZ announces partnership with Getty Images

Monday 3 February, 2014

From today Getty Images is the 2014 Official Photographer for the Public Relations Institute of New Zealand (PRINZ).

Both organisations have signed a one year agreement giving PRINZ access to photographic coverage of key events including its annual conference and Awards event in May, and an event for Senior Practitioners in November as well as selected networking events.

Simone Bell, CEO of PRINZ, said that partnerships with global thought leaders serve both to advance New Zealand public relations practice and open up new opportunities.

"The partnership with Getty Images is very timely as the profession addresses the challenge of incorporating visual imagery into its communication model."

Svetlana Zhukova, Getty Images Marketing Manager Australia and New Zealand commented: "We are excited to be working with PRINZ this year. 2014 will bring further growth in the field of visual content, not in the least in professional photo assignments and video content, and we look forward to sharing these developments with the industry in the coming months."

Getty Images joins other long-standing PRINZ partners, iSentia, Perceptive and Aon.
