Win Free Credits for Stock Photos at Pixmac

by Steven Snell

August 11, 2009 in Site News

Pixmac has offered to give $20 in credits to five readers of If you’re not familiar with Pixmac, they sell royalty-free stock photos that designers can use for websites, posters, brochures, etc (their inventory also includes a large selection of celebrity photos). Most designers need stock photos quite frequently, so hopefully this giveaway will be useful for a lot of readers.


Pixmac has a large inventory of stock photos (well over 6 million photos) available for purchase, and their prices are very competitive. You can buy credits as you need them (starting at $9.95 for 5 credits and going to 500 credits for $449.95), or you can subscribe for a monthly fee if you plan to download a lot of photos.

Of course, like most stock photo sites, you can also sell your own photos at Pixmac. The commission for non-exclusive rights starts at 30% and for exclusive rights it starts at 45%.

How the Giveaway Works:

If you’d like to win $20 in credits to Pixmac, please leave a comment on this post. On Friday, August 14th I will select 5 random winners. At that time this post will be updated and the winners will be notified by email and put in contact with Pixmac.

If you haven’t been to Pixmac before, take a few moments to see what they have to offer.

UPDATE: The giveaway is now over and the winners have been randomly selected. The winners are:

To the winners, you will be contacted with instructions for claiming your prize.
