OÜ Scanpix Baltics


Scanpix Baltics (founded as EM Foto) was founded in 1999 to preserve, manage and distribute digital photos of the Eesti Meedia group. The company expanded quickly and soon became the biggest partner of local news photo producers and users in Estonia. With the involving of foreign partners in 2002, the selection of products offered by the company (in addition to news photos, also decorative pictures, infographics, etc.) increased considerably, and with that the number of customers and users of the company grew.

 In 2002 Scanpix Scandinavia, the biggest photo agency in the Nordic countries, acquired majority holding in EM Foto and the company became Scanpix Baltics. In the next years and months the number of the company’s foreign cooperation partners increased expansively and in addition to Estonia, agencies were opened also in Latvia and Lithuania. By the beginning of 2016, the company’s database consisted of more than 15 million units of different digital products and recordings (news photos, decorative pictures, videos, graphics).

Scanpix Baltics is the biggest cooperation partner of most periodic media publications of the Baltic countries, many advertising agencies, book publishers, web portals and television channels. In the Baltic countries the company represents the world’s largest photo agencies, like Thomson Reuters (Reuters), Agence France-Presse (AFP), Associated Press (AP), Itar-TASS, Panthermedia, AGE, etc. In addition, the products of the Baltic countries’ main photo and video producers, for instance publications of Postimees Grupp, Õhtuleht, Delfi, BNS Lithuania and others, can be found in Scanpix Baltics.

Scanpix Baltics closely cooperates with BNS, the biggest news agency in Estonia and Lithuania. In 2016, Scanpix Baltics also started closely cooperating with LETA, Latvia’s largest information agency.
