6 months? That's a long time to be holding stuff back from other sites, so I hope the wait is worth it.

I thought Sean said a week or two back that they were already starting to contact contributors, or is that just wishful thinking on my part?

Edit: I just checked back this thread and can't see the post I was referring to. I'm sure I didn't imagine it, so maybe it was on a different thread somewhere?

You didn't imagine it. :) It's on page 4 of this topic.

Thanks @m00n, I missed it when I looked back.

From what is says, no news is good news, so I guess that's some consolation to hold onto.

@yanjf, sorry you weren't successful but do you mind sharing the time frame from submission to rejection email, just to give a rough idea?

First image was uploaded on Sept. 14, but the day before yesterday I started to upload those images to Shutterstock, approved and one of them been sold immeditately, because it is easy to delete them if stocksy approve my application. This morning, rejection email received...

Sorry you didn't get accepted, but I hope the images work well for you elsewhere

Hi veryone! I am a contributtor principally on Getty, and a bit on Shutter and others microagencies, I am pushing harder there, in micro...

Now I have seen the call to artist I am trying to go with stocksy, but I have some doubts. I fill the page and now i can upload videos and/or photos.

1. They say to upload a "minimum of 25 photos or/and 10 videos" , so I can upload more than 10 videos. Is better then to split and upload now 10, and if I get rejected upload other 10, or upload directly 20 or more for getting more options? Is better to focus in some kind of videos or better a mix of themes (family, landscapes, adventure...)?

2. anyone know if they admit the model release from the app "Easy releasy" or just the realese form form them?

Thanks a lot and luck for evryone!!!

Sorry if this had already been covered.

I'm reading the legal agreements. As far as I understand stocksy is a cooperative with contributors applying for membership with Stakeholder Group C.

What I like to know is how much / how far contributors are held liable. If there were any financial problems or bankrupt are Stakeholders Group C held responsible for liablity of the cooperative?

Generally, (in most countries), being a shareholder in a Cooperative means liability is limited to the value of your shares and, as you would only own one share, it would be very limited, and certainly not cost-effective for anyone to pursue you anyway. In the event of the holding company going bankrupt, your share would be worthless , so liability = zero.

I'd be glad if Stocksy could confirm my understanding here to be correct?

Yes at least in Germany this is true for a "stock company" (Aktiengesellschaft). Concerning a cooperative german rules are different. Normally all members of a cooperative are liable with their personal assets unless there is a written agreement that they are not made responsible. I'm not a native english speaker, if this passage appears somewhere at stocksys legal agreements I'd appreciate someone ponting me to them.

Anyway it's a good idea if Stocksy can clarify on this.

I believe that in Canada, the Shareholder Liability is the same for a Cooperative as it is for a Limited Liability Company. I don't think you are at any risk if you are approved as a contributor.

for BC:

A statement that the liability of the members or investment shareholders is limited in accordance with the Act.

Thanks, Nica.

I also checked the Parliamentary Bill, which also confirms Limited Liability for shareholders in section 3 Part C:http://publications.gc.ca/Collection-R/LoPBdP/LS/361/c5-e.htm

I didn't think there was an issue, but it's always good to read it in black and white.

Hi,

I just wanted to check that I understood correctly... Is it ok to apply with images that are already accepted at other sites (shutterstock/istock/Adobe) so long as they are removed if accepted at Stocksy?

Also, how does one go about deactivating images from istock if successful? I think you can remove images from shutterstock and Adobe manually in your account but I wasn't sure if this was the case for istock...?

Thanks

You have to ask Istock to remove them and hope that they oblige. I have uploaded mostly new images for the application but for the few I already have on istock, if it comes to it I will close my account.

I asked and they got a ton of response and are actively going through and evaluating many a day.  So it is moving along.  Just a lot to get through and still a small team.

I am heading out to a model shoot later today and want to submit the images to beef up my application since I don't have many images with people. Do they only accept their model release from their site or can I submit with Easy Release from the app on my phone? I have had an agency in the past who wouldn't accept a digital signature too.

yes, they accept Easy Release.

And generic releases? I Uploaded a few people shots in my application, and used the release I had on file. I can easily get another if needed, but it's good to know for reference.

I have submitted an application and some images with people
I have the releases but did not upload the releases with my application, as I remeber reading somewhere that they are not required unless the images are approved and you become a member of Stocksy.

Just want a confirmation if this is correct, or are the releases required beforehand!

Thanks!

1) Why would they say it if it is not true?
2) Why would you not submit a release if you know how to? I know it's a pain, but don't you want to show that you know how to manage the details of submitting content? Why not put your best foot forward.
