In January BNS tested a photo service for media clients. While content-wise the testing period can be deemed a success, business-wise we did not achieve a big enough volume of contracts with potential customers during this one month to launch a full-scale offer of integrated news photography immediately.

We are grateful to our cooperation partners who confirmed their interest and will continue communicating with those who could not make their final decision yet.

It is definitely our goal to get the news photo service going, hopefully in the course of 2011. In communicating with potential clients we saw that the need for greater efficiency and flexibility of the service offered by the news agency really exists.

As for now, BNS is planning to cover individual events in its photo wire, about which we will inform beforehand. To be able to use these photos an order has to be placed at, based on which it will be possible to download the photos in full size. Proposals as regards the events that should be covered can be sent to the same address. The price of each set of photos will be shown alongside the set, being as a rule 150 euros per event.
