JUPITERIMAGES ANNOUNCES EXCLUSIVE PARTNERSHIP WITH PHOTOGRAPHIC YOUTH MUSIC CULTURE ARCHIVE(New York, NY - October 14, 2005) - JupiterImages, a division of Jupitermedia Corporation (Nasdaq: JUPM) today announced an exclusive worldwide partnership with Photographic Youth Music Culture Archive (PYMCA), a rights-managed image company based in London, U.K. The PYMCA collection is scheduled to launch in early 2006 at www.jupiterimages.com.
"An integral part of our strategy is to expand the exclusive and unique, rights-managed content available from our Web sites so that we can provide our clients access to images they can't find anywhere else," stated Alan M. Meckler, Chairman and CEO of Jupitermedia Corporation. "The PYMCA collection is unlike anything offered in our industry and will further enhance JupiterImages' standing, particularly with high-end photo buyers," added Meckler.
Founded in 1997, PYMCA is the world's premier archive of youth culture photography. The authenticity of PYMCA's photographs, often shot by photographers from within the cultures they depict, offers a genuine insight into the lives, circumstances and concerns of their subjects. The collection celebrates the energy, self-expression, idealism, frustrations, resilience and creative vitality of youth the world over, as well as the subcultures and movements they inspire and create.
"By partnering with JupiterImages, we will have the chance to introduce a new segment of image buyers to the edgy and provocative subject matter in our collections," said PYMCA founder Jon Swinstead. "This is a unique opportunity for both organizations and we are very confident of our future growth and success," added Swinstead.
JupiterImages will make the PYMCA collection available online from its various Web sites as well as through select image distributors worldwide.
