Initially featuring a significant back-catalogue of photographs from Skandia Team GBR, the site will grow to include, video, audio and printed material. Media organisations are free to download and reproduce material from media.skandiateamgbr.com for editorial use.
Using powerful software the site offers editors the ability to quickly search for images of individual sailors at specific events, or browse more generally for images appropriate to their publication. Registered users may create, download, send and save albums of images. Registration is simple and almost immediate.
The first event to feature live on media.skandiateamgbr.com will be the ISAF World Sailing Championships, which are currently underway in Cascais, Portugal. Fresh images of the action out on the water will feature every day of the finals series and medal races, starting on Monday 9 July.
“This is a fantastic new service that will allow us to continue supporting our colleagues in the media and ensuring that Skandia Team GBR continues to enjoy the coverage that Britain’s most successful Olympic sport deserves,” commented RYA Olympic Manager Stephen Park.
