Picter is a company with deep roots in photography.

Interactive exhibition »Thread Count« by DER GREIF at Unseen Amsterdam 2017

In the beginning we got together to publish the art photography publication DER GREIF. The core of the publication is the combination of images from established artists such as Carrie Mae Weems and Roger Ballen with images from a new generation of artists such as Juno Calypso, Senta Simond, Tania Franco Klein and Alyssa Heuze. As our publication gained international recognition (including a Lucie Award for Photo Magazine of the year) it expanded to become a cultural organization. The Guest Room series invites editors and curators such as Alessia Glaviano, Robert Morat and Charlotte Cotton to select and combine work of up-and-coming photo talents. We also arrange photography events and exhibitions at the world’s preeminent photography locations in New York, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin and Arles.

By its tenth year in publication, DER GREIF had generated an annual influx of thousands of submissions. We needed a better way to manage these submissions so we built our first product, Picter Contests. In a few short years, Picter Contests is now the industry standard for hosting international photo competitions.

The photography community lives from an interplay of art and commerce. But the project management software on the market is not built to serve the particular needs of visually-driven teams. It's common practice to refer to images by file name or use screenshots for markup. We see an opportunity to do better. Our second product – Picter Workspace – is the world’s first visual project management tool. With our longstanding ties to the industry, we know how to take an images-first approach that will redefine how you work with visuals in your day to day.
