Images for Oscar Winners

It would be fantastic if IMDB could find a way to acquiring images for ALL Oscar winners (and, perhaps, even nominees), past and present. For example, there are many deserving behind-the-scenes motion picture pioneers -- other than performers -- who have made an indelible impact on the industry over a significant period of time. I believe that a photo has the effect of rendering a person's entry seem somehow less anonymous.
Anyhow,  just a thought...

I was under the impression that only IMDB can add images for people. According to the submission guidelines  "The "Add Image" option is only available on IMDb title pages (i.e. movies, TV shows, TV episodes, video games, etc.)".

Hi.

Thank you for your feedback and excitement about our Oscars coverage!

I was under the impression that only IMDB can add images for people.
To clarify this point, images for people can be added by IMDbPro members who have claimed the name page or IMDb editors.
Typically, our editors upload images for Oscar winners, as part of the event coverage.

That said, I am passing on your comment to our teams, to look into more coverage for behind-the-camera talent and older titles.

Enjoy the Oscars tomorrow!
We have some exciting things lined up :-)
