Hi Everyone,

Last month we announced our plans for the Adobe Stock Advocates program and Artist Development Fund. I am pleased to share that we have now officially launched the program and are accepting applications. For information about the Adobe Stock Artist Development fund including how to apply, go here:
https://stock.adobelanding.com/adobe-advocates/fund/

The Advocates Program is not only for those who will be selected to receive the Artist Development Fund but is open to all stock contributors. Everyone is invited to participate by creating inclusive content. As you likely know, content that features diversity and inclusivity is in high demand by stock customers and their audiences. We have shared creative briefs on the Advocates program website to provide you with inspiration for your projects. It doesnt need to be newly created content, if you have existing content on your hard-drive that fits our creative briefs we encourage you to submit it.

It is our goal to be leaders of positive change in stock by encouraging and supporting the production of high quality, inclusive content and we hope you will support and participate in this important endeavor. For information on the Advocates program including the eight creative briefs, go here: https://stock.adobelanding.com/adobe-advocates/

We've put together a detailed FAQ which should cover your questions: https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/adobe-stock-advocates-program-faq.html

If you have any questions we didn't answer in the FAQ, please let me know and I'll get back to you asap.

Thank you,

Mat Hayward

Yes, content submitted by the contributors selected for the Artist Development Fund will be in the Free collection for the first year. If you are not receiving the Artist Development Fund, you can submit content that is relevant to the Advocates program creative briefs via the contributor portal.

Self-identifying artists from underrepresented communities are creators who identify as being part of an underrepresented community, such as: Black, Hispanic & Latinx, Asian/Pacific Islander, Indigenous, LGBTQ+, Female, Disability, Age, Veteran, Religion, Body & Skin Type."

seems the only folk left out are self-identifying cis white young atheist males! 

are all religions underrepresented?  what is a self identifying female?

There are lots of male veterans (over 1 million in the US only) under the age of 34 so they are not left out.
The answer to your last question is pretty self-explanatory.

Yes, all religions are underrepresented in stock imagery and mainstream media/advertising. There is a lack of contemporary, high quality, accurate, and engaging stock imagery depicting religious people, families, practices, rituals, objects, etc.

funding and developing artists is an excellent endeavor, but will have only a minor effect on coverage of under-represented populations.  are the editorial rules going to be changed either overall or for this project?  much religious content ( and other categories) will have many non-released images - it's not reasonable to get model releases for church, mosque or temple services and currently many interior images without people are also rejected when they could be accepted with a more relaxed editorial policy

also,  will there be a separate submission processes for the many of us who are not selected but have coverage of these areas that AS has neglected until now due to those editorial limitations?
