Asian Beach Games
A major factor in the success of any major sporting event is to be found in the sponsorship deals that accompany it. Delivering imagery which supports that activity is central to showcasing the event to the world. And that’s where we came in.
We supplied a team of dedicated sports photographers, account managers and custom built Media Manager site for the event. All in all we delivered over 6,000 images to over 40,000 subscribers around the world.
But that wasn’t all. Each day a different Omani photographer was invited to join our team, helping to ensure the legacy of the event lived on long after we were gone.Download PDF
Asian Beach Games
Demonstrating brand presence is central to sponsorship. BMW wanted to show the world their presence with high profile sporting events including cross-country skiing and biathlon events to maximise the impact of their association.
By utilizing the experience of our winter sports photographers, we helped them do just that; providing imagery within moments of each event happening.
And we didn’t stop there. We used our Media Manager service to distribute imagery to BMW and their media contacts around the world, while giving them complete control over access to those assets.Download PDF
The European Tour
With wide-ranging sponsorship deals and activity worldwide, The European Tour wanted to capitalise on its golf activities and events to maximise exposure for its sponsors.
Our solution was to provide strengthened coverage, with our global team of sports photographers, as well as innovative rights packages and asset management to deliver content quickly and seamlessly to the world’s media.
The result? Improved value of sponsorship. Improved communication. Improved awareness.Download PDF
Texas Motor Speedway
Maximizing effectiveness and visual impact is the name of the game for Texas Motor Speedway. They needed high-quality imagery that captures the dynamism of the sport. They needed to deliver value to their sponsors. And they needed to do it even more efficiently.
Making that happen was demanding. So we dedicated an account manager, some of the finest photographers in the business, delivery via our image.net platform and a streamlined workflow courtesy of our Media Manager service.
In all, we were able to deliver a centralised service, controlled by the client that supported them in distributing powerful and timely image and brand assets to their partners and the media.Download PDF
Texas Motor Speedway
The world of Formula One is glamorous and fast moving, pun intended. Events move quickly. So rapid delivery of imagery which captures all the action, to media around the world, is key to the success of sponsorships.
Add to that, a high-octane brand with a self-claimed ability to perk up its consumers and you have the perfect partnership in the making. But without the oxygen of global publicity it wouldn’t be half as effective.
That’s where we came in, working with Red Bull to provide that exposure. The results speak for themselves.Download PDF
With global sponsorship deals, league games and the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ all capable of generating thousands of images every day, FIFA needed a way of controlling and distributing imagery to the media, its sponsors and its own internal users quickly and efficiently.
But that’s a complex task. It generates its own challenges. It also delivers its own rewards.
Giving FIFA access to our own collections was just part of the solution. We created the FIFA collection thanks to the exclusive access our assignment photographers enjoyed. And we built a secure FIFA Media Manager site. All resulting in unprecedented access and exposure.Download PDF
From photo-calls and VIP hospitality, to golf tournament coverage and branded action – HSBC needed world class photographic coverage, the distribution platforms to get it to the media and a system to manage all the thousands of brand/image assets that were created.
Our response was to put together a team, including photographers and editors, to deliver just the premium imagery they needed. And then we backed it up with the systems to deliver within their organisation and to their agencies.
As a result HSBC have asked us to expand our services to sports beyond golf to include rugby, tennis and equestrian events.Download PDF
