As we head into a new year, we’d like to thank everybody who has supported us over the last 12 months.
2014 was an eventful year, as we celebrated our first birthday in July, received a major national award for innovation from Lloyds Bank in October and have grown exponentially to a point where we now have customers in 112 countries worldwide.
Our Student Photography Competition has now become an annual event and we’d like to thank all at Olympus for sponsoring the inaugural event and Canon for supplying prizes for this years competition that has just closed. Particularly thanks to Harry Judd from McBusted and Film Director Jack Harries for agreeing to be Judges on the panel this year.
Our mission remains the same, to showcase the work of existing Artists, Photographers, Writers and Designers and expose emerging talent to a global audience. We remain passionate in our resolve to achieve these aims.
We operate through a principle of open innovation and are constantly listening to our customers. As a result we have some very exciting projects in the pipeline, and will be updating you regularly on our progress.
In January we will be launching the Exhibtr App for iOS and Android for use on smart phones and tablets. You will be able to upload your shots directly from your device or camera to your Exhibtr profile. We will continue to showcase the very best work on our discover page.
We are currently working on a major site upgrade, which will see considerable improvements in functionality and design, which will make the site and profiles far easier for users to manage. The new upgrade will provide a section dedicated to designers and their work, as well as several new features.
We’ll also be providing an online store, which will allow customers to sell and license all forms of their art on line. Many customers have asked us for this service and we’ll be incorporating the store into the next upgrade when it’s launched later in the year.
We always look forward to all your views and ideas so please don’t hesitate to contact us through the site if you have any comments good or bad.
All that remains is once again thank you for your continued support and wish you a Happy New year from all of us at Exhibtr.
