Two collections about the war in Ukraine for free download at DepositPhotos

Jo Ann Snover:
I saw a post about Deposit Photos creating two collections of free images/videos of protests about the war in Ukraine (an account is required, but you can use a Google or FB account if you don't already have one at DepositPhotos).

They explain why they are doing this:

Most of the content is editorial use only (not surprisingly given the subject)

Mimi the Cat:
But in the meantime it seems Alamy are still allowing TASS the official russian news agency to publish in live news.

Some companies need to wake up and stop money being supplied to the russian federation

--- End quote ---

This is important since the DP founder is a Russian who built his business in Ukraine:

Dmitry Sergeev is a successful serial entrepreneur of Russian origin, who built his most prominent venture, Depositphotos, in Ukraine.
...
Being of Russian origin, but developing his startup in Ukraine, it was inevitable for Sergeev to face consequences from the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Having spent most of his recent years in the latter, Sergeev feels more passionate about Ukraine, its pro-European direction and most importantly, its IT community. He often emphasises his refusal to relocate the main operations from Ukraine, despite this being a frequent environment of investors approaching Depositphotos. As of today, Sergeev has acquired citizenship in Cyprus but maintains stronger ties with Ukraine, rather than with Russia.

Jo Ann Snover:
Shutterstock says it's making a direct donation to Ukrainian contributors:

https://investor.shutterstock.com/news-releases/news-release-details/shutterstock-stands-support-ukraine-immediate-donation

Not clear to me exactly how they will implement this offer, but the press release says:

"... by making an immediate donation of $1 million to provide direct assistance to Shutterstock's thousands of contributing photographers, videographers, 3D artists, illustrators and musicians in Ukraine.."

If anyone who might be eligible for this assistance knows more about how Shutterstock is distributing this assistance, it'd be good to hear - and possibly useful to others who might want to receive assistance but don't know how.
