I have launched a survey on SurveyMonkey that is designed to gather general information about the incomes Still Photographers around the world are earning from the editorial (not advertising) uses of their work in newspapers, magazines or online editorial sites?

To see the 8 questions before filling out the survey go here. http://www.selling-stock.com/Article/editorial-photographer-income-survey

To respond to the survey go here. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PhotogIncomeSurvey
Individual responses are totally confidential. We and not tracking IP addresses or gathering any personal data of individual respondents.

Caution: when responding to the survey you will not be able to change your answers after you have clicked Done. In addition, after clicking Done you will not be able to access the survey again from the same computer. You will receive a message saying, You have already completed this survey. However, you may still access the survey from a different computer. You can always re-read the survey questions by going to: http://www.selling-stock.com/Article/editorial-photographer-income-survey

Stock photographers may not receive an accurate breakdown of how their images are being used. If that is the case, on Question 5 please check Not Sure unless you are reasonably confident, given the subject matter of your images, that a certain percentage of the uses are editorial. All photographers who license uses of their images are encouraged to respond to this survey.

The data from this survey should be very helpful to photography students, working professional photographers and the organizations that license rights to use editorial photography as well as those who purchase editorial photographs. It should also help us have a better understanding of sales in various parts of the photographers working in various parts of the world.

The survey will remain open until mid-October. At that point I will do a comprehensive analysis of the data and make the results available at www.selling-stock.com as well as publishing the detailed report here on MicrostockGroup.

Hi Jim

Sounds interesting, but how would most microstock contributors know the answer? I do both commercial and editorial images and submit them to the agencies that accept them, but no-one breaks out the sales between those categories (as far as I know). Wouldn't you have to track the sales performance of every single image?

Hence the "Not Sure" Option

I agree you can do that, but the whole point was to estimate that editorial income for photographers...
