How far in advance do you start submitting new seasonal art? E.g. is it already too late if I want some pieces up by Halloween? Given the delay for review (it's been over 6 weeks), how do you approach working on your seasonal releases?

anywhere from 3 to 6 months out. Some companies can take months to process while others only weeks.

Micro buyers are typically buying for their post tomorrow.

I upload whenever I have the material.  I am not really selling for THIS holiday, but for every similar holiday in the future.

Typically I go to some celebration (New Year's Eve, Corpus Cristi, whatever) and capture it the best I can.  I then edit all the material, which takes me several days.  At that point, I have missed the news cycle (let alone advertising cycle) for this year.  But now my stuff is there for next year, whenever a buyer decides to look for it -- and every year after that.

Sure enough, Corpus Cristi is a big deal here in South America.  I shot a couple hundred images back in 2013 at one of the celebrations.  My first sale on those images was in 2014, and every year in May/June I see them coming up again.

Doesn't make me rich, but those sales here and there for this and that is basically what stock photo market is all about...
