The Disability Collection

We've partnered with Oath and the National Disability Leadership Alliance to create a special collection of images that break stereotypes and elevate the valuable role of people living with disabilities by providing more authentic and relevant images of them.

While we cannot change what people publish or click on overnight, we can provide better alternatives for those looking to create more authentic stories. The Disability Collection - strives to be a collection of authentic and empowering images of people with disabilities in everyday life. This is an opportunity to be a part of an important project and we invite you to join us.

What imagery are we looking for?

We have worked closely with Oath and the NDLA to identify the types of images that perpetuate myths of people living with disabilities and have created a set of specific brief that sets out the full range of content needed to address the content gaps but also guidelines for working with and representing disabled people.

What is Stock Licensing?

It is important to understand what a royalty-free license is and how the imagery you submit can be used by our customers.

When a customer downloads your image file from Getty Images, they're buying a standard licence that lets them use the file for any personal, business or commercial purposes. Customers can use your content in advertising, marketing, apps, websites, social media, TV and film, presentations and product packaging, among hundreds of other uses. Your images will help brands and organisations tell their stories.

Please note, that by applying you agree to be contacted by Getty Images in relation to The Disability Collection.
