Why do you think they are cleaning house? Are images missing from the database?

I didn't mean cleaning as in removing individual images; I meant that inactive contributors could be persuaded to contribute or given a deadline. And if inactive contributors don't want to contribute they could be invited to leave, that's what I meant. In that case, Stocksy would only later know how many and what subjects and areas they could take on new contributors.

It's just my 2 cents, hope I explained it clearly. :)

About Stocksy exclusivity, I've seen Sean's message on series exclusivity, but I have another question - can the picture be removed from the other agencies and then offered to Stocksy, is then the image exclusive?

Yes, that's fine.

Anyone heard back yet? Do we have any idea how long it will take to hear whether a contributor is approved or not? A week? A month? Three months?

It would be good to have a rough timescale.

As usual.

Uploaded last 5 more yesterday, after already being under review. Now I'm just waiting for the rejection notice. They can do what they want. Seems to be a good agency and working for quality also favorable to the limited number of qualified artists. I'd be proud just to be a member, but I think that's unlikely.

Thanks Sean... I also don't see until when is the call for artists opened?

Jim, Indeed, being accepted would give some sense of purpose to all this...

I don't know of any close date yet.

I wanted to upload some more images today, (email said I could upload up to 100), but I don't appear to be able to submit anything. Is there a problem?

Call it whatever you want, but if you search latest images you will spot at least one contributor whose "oldest" images are from October. If it's an "old" contributor who just now contributed images or if it's a new select from this Call to Artists ... who knows? :)

False alarm - it's working again now.

I applied to Stocksy a month ago when I first saw the call for artists and am still waiting for a response. Does anyone know how long the application process takes? I think it said two weeks when I submitted? Do they just not follow up if you're rejected?

I was also recently accepted to Cavan images where I did submit my editorial images with them. I also want to submit my commercial images to Cavan but can't yet because most of them are sitting waiting for a response from Stocksy.

Does anyone know if Stocksy has a time limit for removal of images after acceptance? I think Alamy has 60 days for example. I just don't want my images to be crossing paths between to exclusive sites if I am accepted to Stocksy!

Wow 6 months! Thanks though :)

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?

What will give us more profit: Stocksy or Cavan?

That is exactly why I won't attempt to apply there. My new work goes immediately to agencies (RM and RF) that do accept my work and provide proven steady income. I can't even understand the logic of putting completed productivity on hold for a year or two until the call to artists is open, then submit that work in hopes I might get accepted months later. That to me translates to loss of income.

Love the concept of Stocksy but it ain't for me as the time delays are counter productive to my situation.

Our acceptance time is a week or less. But nobody is telling you to withhold submitting to other places until after you're accepted.

Thanks for the info. Cavan Images has a long hold on removed images after they approve, so anything I submit to them that's accepted is off limits to my Stocksy application.

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

Do you mind me asking - did you submit a variety of image subjects i.e. people,landscape,food,etc or was it mostly of a single genre? And did you do some kind of desaturated look (the kind stocksy seems to have/prefer?

I uploaded 95 images, including people, landscape, animal, flower, etc (no food)

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?
