iStockphoto turns 10 years old

Look who s growing up right before our eyes! iStock Photo is 10 years old and we’ve barely even had time to tell them how proud we are. They’ve gone ahead and planned their own birthday celebrations with something for everyone. 

First a very cool “Faces of iStock” mosaic with uploads of the iStock community. People have until April 4th to upload their images to be included in the mosaic, so get on it this weekend and get your image in. Once you’ve got a self-portrait, head on over to for more details.

Second, their social media strategist, Tyler Hellard, is spearheading a Twitter contest.  Every hour on Twitter they will be giving away a prize, from midnight on April 7th until the following midnight, I hear that one lucky person will be winning an iPad, but there’s other great stuff as well. Here’s hoping you don’t have to stay awake for 24 hours to win something 🙂

Also, iStock is entering everyone who buys a credit pack on iStockPhoto into a draw for $10000. The goal here was to say thank you to the community members that have made iStock great. They’ve chosen to say thank you buy rewarding someone for doing what they do anyway, buy credit packs for photos on their site.

Finally, they are celebrating with a party here in Calgary, their hometown.
