We want every esport photo and video to impact the world!

 

Our Solution

Our ESPAT Media founders have identified the need for a dedicated photo and video asset platform for the editorial and commercial global market. The demand was impossible to ignore, especially based on their collective experience in sports and entertainment media. Our platform is designed to rapidly aggregate photos and videos captured around the world by crews already in the bloodstream of esports, immediately available to license.

Our Services

ESPAT's custom content offering for esport's business partners will increase brand awareness, enhance consumer engagement, drive sales and audience engagement. Photography and video crews will be available for hire, dedicated to your brand for tournaments, talent appearances, awards and on location ad campaign shoots. Once your custom content is produced, we will deliver that digital media to a wide audience through wire distribution and brand activations across social channels.

Focused on serving: teams, sponsors, venues, publishers, social media influencers, consumer products and broadcast partners.
