Documents were filed today in the US to create a non-profit organization, the Stock Coalition.

This will be the basis upon which every contract with every agency will be signed, and will support Coalition initiatives. This is a major milestone for the Stock Coalition as all of our work will be official, backed by our own organization.

To find out more, join the Stock Coalition here: https://stockcoalition.org/join-us/

Once the application form has been submitted, you will be able to gain access to the main members forum where more details about the organisation have been posted.

Congratulations and hearty thanks to all who have been involved in conceiving of and then getting this new non-profit off the ground.

Once you have it officially approved and running, please be sure to provide a DONATE button so the rest of us can help support it financially.

I will do that, for sure!

That part you can access now - at the web site (that's how the fees for filing got paid!)

https://stockcoalition.org/donate/

There's also a RedBubble shop where the proceeds go to the Coalition, should you have a coffee mug emergency :)

Thanks to you all, so very much!

Thanks so much Martha.

Would you be interested in having one of your images as the next cover in the Facebook group/twitter profile for the Stock Coalition? If you would, I thought this one would work very well in the format required - it has to be horizontal

As it's covered in the logo and tagline, it's effectively watermarked :)

If you would like to do that, I'll send you a message with my email address to send it to.

Yes, Jo Ann,I would be honored to have that pic used for the Stock Coalition's social media. I'll send it to you in the morning.

I lost in the last battle, but I did join and send in a few dollars.  Good job.

Thanks Sean.

I'll extend the same invitation as I did to Martha. If you'd like to have one of your images featured in a future cover for the Coalition, that'd be great. Needs to be horizontal  and not have too much important stuff around the edges - you can email it to me if you want t do that

Interesting but "about us" needs a lot more details ? Is this a type of Photo Union ? What are we signing up for ? Are you starting a new stock site ? How do you gain fair value for coalition members ?

The Stock Coalition is an industry body representing talented global photographers, illustrators, videographers, animators and other artists who contribute their work to agencies for distribution. Collectively, our work has been licensed millions of times by companies and individuals around the world.
Our goal is to ensure fair value and compensation for our collective creative works and to support agencies with strategies that align with these goals.
Our organization has had to form rapidly in response to one agency unilaterally changing their compensation agreement with contributors without any warning or consultation with catastrophic implications on the earnings for these contributors.
We have built a competent core management team to steer our organization and a constitution and full list of goals will be prepared in due course.

Awesome!

And for me also: Donation made!  And I will also do it again.

That's $$ not in Shuttercrook and other Gettythieves pockets

Thanks to you all, so very much!

Thank you so much for the donation.

If you'd like to have one of your illustrations (I assume from your user name :) ) as a cover on our social media pages, let me know via PM. It would have to be something I could work into a horizontal format with a fairly skinny "safe" area.

Thanks. Something like the images you put in FB header for example ?
