Finally got the courage to hit send on my Stocksy application, and stop the indecision about which images to include! It's over to them now. Fingers crossed, I am so keen to be a contributor to Stocksy as I love the images there, so inspirational and creative, and pushing boundaries with 'on trend' lifestyle content.
Link to my Flickr stream below contains many of the images I included. I know there's not many, I only put this together last couple of days. I'm being brave putting this out there as usually I just read this forum, not actually post much! I will also post the outcome when I hear back from them... hoping for a  ;D
Any feedback is welcome too  ::) Thanks

I would say that you stand a good chance with the work you've presented. Has that  'Stocksy-style' about it.
I notice you follow, amongst others, Cat Klein and Darren Muir. Excellent choices and Darren Muir is a real talent in food photography. Like his work a lot.

Good luck

How long did you wait for a response? i made my apply on june 17 and i'm still waiting. I know they say it could take 2 months, but i read that some people heard them back in 20 days

I sent my application June 16 and I'm still waiting too. I'm afraid I will be very disappointed if I will receive rejection after two long months.

I think that maybe are "skimming the fat off". Maybe we passed a first selection and now they are deciding if let us join or not. It's all a big Maybe :/

Probably you are right. May be they put us into a group "We aren't sure what to think about them"...

Jodie you have a lovely portfolio and I wish you luck!  I can definitely see your work there!

I posted in another post but never heard from anyone.  Does anyone know if stocksy is 100% checking our external portfolios?  I've had a lot of work this summer and my portfolio is very different and much improved.  It would be a bummer if my work couldn't be reviewed as a whole!

It's been almost two months and I haven't heard back and i'm starting to get a little nervous.  I have a friend who applied after me and was rejected a few weeks ago.  I'm getting nervous that my application hasn't been seen yet and that the call to artists will close.

If anyone has any advice for my portfolio please let me know!

I hope they will check our external portfolio. I improved it later and I'm very sorry I'm not able to add some of new images to my application too. I applied 7 weeks ago and I'm still waiting.
