Important information for the photo community
Shutdown of the photo community on April 30th, 2021 - photos in the stock agency will be retained
Dear Community members
We hope you had a good start to the new year! As in every year, strategic decisions had to be made for the coming year, and this year under the special challenges that the corona pandemic has brought with it.
In addition, there are rapid changes in the business environment, which is increasingly affected by free image platforms.
Your images accepted for the stock agency won't be deleted
We thank you for your long-standing participation in the community and ask you, if necessary, to download and save all image files that you still need by April 30, 2021. This expressly does not apply to image files that have been submitted to and accepted for licensing in the stock agency. As of April 30th only those images that have only been uploaded to the photo community will be deleted. Images that have been uploaded to both the photo community and stock agency will be are retained in the stock agency.
Maintain your friendships with the Nikon Network Photography
If you want to maintain friendships in another photo community and make new friends around your hobby, we recommend the Nikon Photography Network. If you are interested in switching there, you can take a look at link 1 below and use the second link to open the registration page.
By the way, only a member name and an email address are required to register there.
If you are interested in continuing to operate the community yourself or if you know someone who would like to consider this, you are welcome to contact us by March 31, 2021 at the latest.
Further innovations and information will follow
In the next few months we will come up with a very interesting innovation that you might find particularly interesting. We will contact you again in due course.
We hope for your understanding for this difficult decision and wish you all the best, also as an active photographer with us or perhaps as part of our new initiative mentioned above.
With best regards,
Your PantherMedia team
