About us

BackpagePix was created as a Photographic Agency in 2001 and has developed into a media syndication agency, which has dominated football sponsorships in South Africa’s growing football industry and is contracted to nearly 80 percent of professional football sponsorships in South Africa through PR Companies and Marketing Agencies aligned to the various sponsorships.

Over the past ten years BackpagePix has taken its successful media syndication package into to other major and minor sporting codes as well as into other African countries. From a strong football background we have now grown and developed as a major force in Sports Imagery throughout the various sporting codes in Africa.

From development sporting events to the Fifa World Cup – from local athletic meets to the Olympic Games, no job is too big or too small. Over the past few years the BackpagePix portfolio has grown immensely to the point where we can now cover and supply images from any sporting event.

Mountain biking, netball, rugby, hockey, athletics, football, golf, swimming, athletics … you name it and we will cover it!

BackpagePix has recently joint forces with International Photo Agency EPA (European Pressphoto Agency) offering both a live wire feed as well as secondary sales to the African market.
