Welcome to the Creative Research Forum for iStock Contributors. Follow this forum for briefs and reports on our collection needs, industry trends, and creative challenges.
What is Creative Research?
The Creative Research team at Getty Images and iStock analyzes the content of our collections, how and where that content gets downloaded, and how it is put to use out there in the world.
We look at images through a variety of lenses, breaking them down by category, genre, region, and audience, in order to spot trends and see patterns. We follow stock imagery in use across different segments and industries, to see what is popular and how it's being used.

Creative briefs aren't necessarily on a monthly schedule. It's our intention to get a brief out at least every two months. We hope this can help the contributor base plan and strategize the content they shoot in order to accommodate the needs of our customers. Please let us know if you have any suggestions going forward by posting in our Suggestion Forum. Title your suggestion with "Creative Research:"
