The BBC Kids Collection

Furthering our commitment to break visual stereotypes and broaden the representation of people, we have partnered with the BBC to create a library of authentic imagery and video of children. Both Getty Images and the BBC are committed to increasing the representation of children and families who are currently underrepresented in the media.

Launching with over 2,000 images and videos, the BBC Kids Collection captures everyday moments of a diverse range of children from across the UK.

A seed fund sponsored by BBC Children’s of £10,000 is now open to applications from amateur and professional photographers who are creating inclusive stories of UK children and families. We encourage photographers from across the UK to participate. See below for details.

View the library here and check back often as the library grows.
