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!

Thanks Chelsea, really appreciate your feedback! I also added more images to flickr after my application so I do hope they review all the links I provided. You have some gorgeous images, and they seem like they would fit well with the Stocksy feel. But we will all just have to wait! My fingers are getting sore being crossed all the time!

Oh well. :( I uploaded 25 initial images on the Stocksy website last Saturday and heard back from them this morning. The photos were rejected but they said would be happy to look at my portfolio again in a few months.

Thank you for sharing your experience, epantha. Did you send them images from your microstock portfolio or something different? I was rejected with my microstock images last year so I decided to choose more personal work for this time but I don't know if to was good decision yet.

Does anyone got approved from Stocksy this year so far?
I applied two months ago and still have not received any answer from Stocksy. I am getting worried.
Epantha, I am sorry to hear that :(

Chelsea, I sent a question to Stocksy support and they assured me that they will check our websites  :)

Thank you Magdalena!  I just took a very deep breath.    And thank you Jodie!

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't get in epantha!

I definitely see that people are getting in on their site.  I'm wondering if they go through portfolios randomly seeing as though epantha heard back within a week and I had a friend hear back before me and I applied before her.  Who knows, but i'm starting to get really anxious.

For the Stocksy application, I uploaded some stock photos that are already online and some from recent trips. I ended up with a mixed bag of old and new and different styles which might not have been very cohesive as a group.

For my next application in 3 months, I will upload mostly new work using my 5D Mark II and iPhone and work towards a more unified portfolio. I do like some of the filters you can use in Lightroom which are kind of toned down Instagram types and have been getting some good results using my phone camera, which I never would have even considered using in the past.

I was getting pretty bored with the whole stock photo scene (started uploading in 2008), but the hope of getting into Stocksy has reignited a passion for shooting again. I REALLY want to get in there. I work part time as a designer at a marketing and communications agency and most of the photography used there has the "new look". It seems to me that it would be a good idea to go with the flow, and change with the times, even if it means changing my shooting style and post-production techniques.

Good luck with your Stocksy application, heard it's not easy to get through nor it's worthwhile to apply for one.

No!  Today actually marks two months since I applied, so I am hoping that I might be reviewed today.  The wait is 1 - 2 months.  I know that I'm certainly not the best photographer that ever applied but I am hopeful and I'm worried that my application is going to get forgotten!  This is one long wait.
