Done!  I really enjoy completing the annual survey.  It makes me think about the agency ranking, RPI, how much I spent on shoots and studio stuff, etc. etc.

So we now have the definition of what a PRO is.

I'm iStock Exclusive and a contributor to Alamy (RM). Does your survey want just the iStock numbers or the iStock plus Alamy?

I did iStock only, as the survey seemed to consider Alamy as "macrostock" (even though we know it really isn't -- but it isn't exactly microstock, either).

OTOH, Getty isn't microstock either, yet I included my Getty earnings.  :o

yes, it gets confusing once we start pulling things apart.  I think we'll still come away with some good generalizations about the industry.

I know it is called the microstock survey, but maybe for next year couldnt we add more macro agencies? Corbis,Getty,Masterfile,Offset etc... I think it would be really helpful to get an overview for the whole market. And there are more and more artists who send files to all price levels,not just micro. It might also encourage people to apply there, to diversify their portfolios and returns.

done. The "answer only one" questions might be split between video and stills next year.  I am most excited about, for example, is different for video compared to still products.
