But how (i.e. where) would one even join it today?
I think you would need to apply.

Just that they seem to have replaced their initial submission with a ****ing competition... just the sort of professionals that other professionals work with...

This is what they have on their website:

http://contributors.gettyimages.com/workwithus/

But why not just attend one of those istocklypses where people from getty are also present?

The most difficult choice though will be to decide what goes to which agency and should it be RM on getty or RF elsewhere (or on getty) and where will that file earn you the most money?

Also if Getty only takes a few images from a series will you then earn enough from it? Or wouldt you earn more by spreading the files to many different agencies,maybe even spreading the uploads carefully over 2 years? Or sell direct? High price on pond5?

Having images on getty is not an instant way to get rich, just like sending files to subscription sites doest mean you will be poor.

I'm totally confused. The "work with us" link takes you to Getty Images Competition where you submit photos to a brief. No where does it say what happens if you win, or if there is one winner or multiple, if you can enter multiple photos, etc etc. Is this there way of applying for Getty RM?

From the link in Cobalt's post, I just see a number of links to different sorts of content you could send to Getty (no editorial).
No competition.

Now I see what you mean. But it doest look that scary. I mean if you are applying for getty, you consider yourself a pro in stock photography,so you should be able to put together an interesting application that stands out anyway.

I think it is a fun looking page, why not make the application process inspirational? Also they probably get so many applications every day, this system might help people to be more focussed when they apply.

getty is an edited collection with exclusive images. It is a process you need to get used to when you come from the micros.

But if you really want to work with them, i wouldt let the page scare you.

At the moment it is probably a lot easier to get into getty than stocksy or other more boutique agencies. They are a much bigger outfit and can work with more people.

I wish they gave more information upfront that this is an application process and not a contest in the traditional sense. Also there is no information about rates and royalties to be found -- or at least that I can find.

I agree, that is strange. They probably assume everyone knows their rates,but if I was checking them out, I would also want to know what the terms are.

No I registered and it just lets you enter the competition. I will email them I guess.

How many photos can you upload after you register? It looks like most people uploaded somewhere between 4-6. Anyone go thru the process yet?
