Important information for the photo community

photo community function discontinues on 30.4. 2021 - photos submitted to stock agency retained

Aktuelle Information zur Fotocommunity

Dear Community members

The photo community function of PantherMedia was closed down as of April 30th 2021 as announced previously.

As in every year, strategic decisions had to be made for this year, and this time 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.

We therefore had to decide to focus our resources on our core business (sale of licenses and uploads to the contributor portal) to concentrate on these challenges.

Your images accepted for the stock agency remain online

Images that were submitted to the stock agency are not affected by this and are retained there and on sales.

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.

1. Nikon Netzwerk Photography
2. Nikon Netzwerk Photography Register

By the way, only a member name and an email address are required to register there.

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 thank you for your long-standing participation in the community and hope for your understanding for this difficult decision. We wish you all the best, both as an active photographer with us or perhaps as part of our new initiative mentioned above.

With best regards,

Your PantherMedia team

For the sake of good order, we would like to point out that the shutdown is taking place in accordance with ยง 7.4 of the Terms of Use - Special right of termination: Additionally, PantherMedia is entitled at any time to stop the platform, the services offered there or parts of such services without prior notice. The members' entitlement of use will end automatically to the same extent.

Questions about buying videos or images?

We are happy to advise you and look forward to a personal conversation!
