We are so thrilled to have your eyes (and, hopefully soon, your images ????) on our website!
Pixels in Colour was started in 2016 as a way to add diversity to the world of stock photography. In short, it provides content creators of color a platform to upload and sell high quality images and also gives brands access to a robust database of diverse stock images, all in one place!
Why Pixels in Colour?
Too many times, we’ve heard brands say things like: ‘We don’t typically use images that feature people of color because it’s difficult to find them.’ If that is indeed the case, then Pixels in Colour seeks to solve that problem. We want to make it as easy as A, B, C for brands (big and small) to find royalty-free images that feature underrepresented people of color. Ultimately, Pixels in Colour represents the underrepresented in stock photography.
Why Should You Care?
The sad truth is that a lot of what we believe to be true, is due in large part to what we see in the media. If people of color are constantly being shown pictures, videos, movies and TV shows that feature only ONE race, then they start to believe that they don’t exist, that their voices don’t count, that they don’t matter. And that couldn’t be further from the truth.
We are ALL deserving of representation and that is the platform upon which Pixels in Colour stands. We hope that you join our movement and help us paint the world in more realistic shades of beauty.
