The 2013 Microstock Industry Survey is now live.  It shouldn't take more than 5-10 minutes if you have your numbers ready.  You can find it here

If you enjoyed the previous years results, please share it around (last year we had 750+ respondents).  It would be great if as many people as possible can take part so we can get the most accurate results possible.

The survey follows a nearly identical flow to previous years (with a few tweaks thanks to comments) as it is nice to compare results from year to year and I feel it asks the basic questions we are wondering without taking too long to answer.

For interest, here is last year's infographic and full results

As a thank you to everyone who responds there will be a random give-away again.  There are a number of prizes up for grabs.  There will be one winner for each prize.  Winners will be drawn randomly (using a random number generator).  Prizes cannot be exchanged for cash.

StockPerformer has offered a one year Eagle and one year Sparrow membership ($400 and $125 value)
ProImageExperts has offered a $500 image editing package and a $400 image editing package (2 winners)
MicrostockSubmitter has offered a 6 month unlimited subscriptions ($250 value)
MicrostockGroup will give a GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition ($399 value)

The giveaway is now over - winners announced here.

Just filled in the survey  :)

The box for leaving your e-mail address at the end is a bit, let's say "spacious" ;D At least it is in my IE9...

"How many photos did you have for sale in the microstock marketplace (as of December last year)?"

Does that mean December 2013 or 2012?

Percentage of total income. Is that microstock total? Stock sales total? Photography total (including commissioned shoots)? Personal earnings total (including the day job - non photo)?

Done.  It's a fun list of questions, though I always have difficulties with those questions about "how much did you spend" (on hardware and on microstock shootings).  I don't keep track of that - I don't want to get depressed  :) - so I did a rough estimate.

Um... that is cool. * it, I guess I would have had to add my email address somewhere to qualify for one of the prizes, right?  :o

I guess there is no way to add that when I've already sent my filled out survey form...?
