Our award-winning photographers cover more than 16,000 news events, 28,000 sports events and 50,000 entertainment events annually. If something happens anywhere in the world, we’re there to bring you the images and video you need.

As we countdown to the end of 2013, our Directors of Photography around the globe are starting to select the images that stood out and told the stories of the key events that shaped 2013. This selection is made from the 4 million plus images uploaded to gettyimages.com across news, sport, entertainment and from partners.

Here's a small sample of the best of the year. If you would like to follow the full selection as it unfolds, bookmark the Year in Focus landing page.

Take a look back at the best of 2012 via our Year in Focus ebook and downloadable app (available in the ibookstore).
