Win Free Credits for Stock Photos at Pixmac

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.
