Back at the beginning of 2019 we ran an internal photo competition, the aim being to get to know the whole team a little better, as well as sprucing up our marketing materials with some funky new stock 🕺

The competition had 410 entries and formed the foundation of what we now call ‘The Seenit Stock Library’. After the success of the competition, we opened the library up so that anyone could contribute using the Seenit Capture app and the project id seenitpics; anything uploaded would go directly into our stock library. As more and more uploads came in, we started to share our photo of the week across social media.

As I write this, the ‘The Seenit Stock Library’ holds 1414 uploads from 443 locations across the globe. We are now in a position where no longer need to use stock sites, and can completely rely on our own, crowd-sourced library, where not only are the photos completely unique, each one has a story to tell. Where stock footage on the whole lacks authenticity and at times can be downright weird (search ‘business success’ if you don’t believe me), your own crowd-sourced stock proves to be the antidote to that 🙌

And so, as 2019 comes to a close, here is a selection of our favourite photos uploaded throughout the year. We’ve picked images that meant something to us, this could be because the photo captured a special story, showcased creativity, or it was just a great photograph. At the bottom, we’ve picked our top three photos of the year 🎉

2nd place 🥈

This was taken on 35mm film and uploaded to Seenit back in September 2019. It show’s Rocky and Emily enjoying a drink at the old Seenit office and, let’s face it, everything looks better when shot with film 📽

And the winner is… 🏆

Two women scuba diving

1st place 🥇

Photo by: David Forbes Shot using a drone and uploaded to Seenit back in July 2019, the photo shows two swimmers enjoying the blue waters of the Turks and Caicos Islands and, as I look out of the window at a cold, grey, and drizzly London, I just can’t get enough of that water 🏖

And there there you have it 🤓
