Are you an Alamy contributor with a burning question? Perhaps you’re a newbie just starting out and you’re getting to grips with our system. Or maybe you haven’t registered with Alamy yet but you want to understand the ins and outs of Alamy in more detail first. Well, there are lots of ways you can find the answers so here’s a quick rundown. Before I get started though, I really want to emphasise this:

Please don’t contact our customer service (sales) team either by phone or via email. The team there won’t be able to help with contributor questions and they’re there for customers – if you do contact them you’ll literally be taking our sales team away from selling your images. It’ll be much easier (and you’ll get a quicker resolution) by following one (or all) of the steps below:

Our contributor relations team
We have an expert team on hand to help you, and get this, during UK business hours you’ll get a reply to your email within 30 minutes! Considering we have 60k active contributors we think that’s pretty impressive. Perhaps even the best in the industry? Alamy Contributor Relations don’t have a phone line and we find that the vast majority of queries can be dealt with by email. However, if we find a call would be the best option to clear something up then we will give you a call.
