Comments Comments

Shutterstock has just released its 2020 Year in Review, a collection of images that captured the most noteworthy stories of the past year. Shutterstock is global provider of licensed photographs and videos, among other mediums, and works with over one million contributors.

This year was certainly one for the history books, marked by loss, tragedy and upheaval, as well as progress, unity and hope.

As part of their Year in Review, Shutterstock has put together a series of collections organised chronologically by month, as well as thematically under categories like Entertainment, News, Sport, Obituraries and more. 

Some notable events that feature in the collections include: 'Parasite' winning Best Picture at the Academy Awards and being the first non-English film to win the award; the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic and the social distancing measures introduced to combat its spread; the rapid globalisation of the Black Lives Matter movement; the highly-anticipated US presidential election.
