Getty Images & iStock Events


The iStockalypse was born in early 2005, as an official multi-day photo and video event. Several times a year, contributing artists and photographers from the iStock community come together to collaborate, share knowledge, create stunning content and exchange tricks of the stock industry trade.

The iStockalypse is not only about creating great local content. Our passion is growing artists and providing them with the tools and expertise to further their experience and education. We set the stage for attendees to broaden their knowledge in a series of seminars and activities designed to take their trade to the next level.


Minilypses are an opportunity for our community members to plan and host events for their fellow contributors. Every year dozens of community-planned events take place around the world, with local contributors inviting peers to their home turf. Attendees get the insider perspective on unique locations. Hosts get the chance to plan a photography event – with help from iStock and Getty Images.

Creative Conferences

An exclusive by-invitation-only event, bringing together Getty Images & iStock contributors to equip them with all the market information, business insights and inspirational creative workshops that can fit into two days.
