Hello,
I have shared in some briefs at imagebrief.com then , I got a notice that client didn't choose any image this time .

I think I am free now to sell this photo as RF in all agencies .

Am I right ??

Sure, they don't own your image, and you didn't enter any license.

Yes, of course you can sell them wherever you want.   

I think the images will remain on your personal Imagebrief marketplace unless you actively delete them.  In this case, there is a (small) possibility that they might be selected for purchase by another client, which you would not be able to complete, if they had been sold as RF on a cheaper site. 

As I said, it is a small possibility. 

Regards

Delete image before you offer that to microstocks or other stock (price under price $250). Of course, you can not return same image to the IB later.

Before photographers post images to Imagebrief, I suggest that you look into the ACTUAL sales they make, I have entered a number of briefs, at least 2 of these were URGENT must be filled promptly, they sat around for literally weeks, then closed and the briefer did not purchase one image. When you look carefully at the briefs listed and the briefs that are filled is is pretty small.

if you plan to bring the photo into microstock, i'd suggest that you take it off IB first.
I am not the biggest fan of them.  A potential 'buyer' can put a brief out with little commitment, and then we, the photographers do the leg work for the 'human powered image search' or whatever their tagline is. and more often than not, I see the brief go quiet.   I think that place could convert a lot more briefs into sales for us photographers if they got a simple deposit from a 'buyer' for each brief they put out. 
Otherwise, the buyer is about as committed to the brief as a google image search.

I agree, only about 10-15% are awarded.

I am not a fan of their business model. Just no expectation for return. Deposits from buyers definetely can improve their responsibility and this is a normal practice on respectable freelancing sites.

The post became a review for Image Brief :)
Thank you for this very useful information

in fact I am new at Image Brief , but I was very optimistic about them.

Prices are really good , not pennies like microstock

Aren't there any successful stories with them ? :)

I haven't sold none, but my friend has sold couple images via marketplace. For her it's ok, small marketplace portfolio and she will not sell via microstocks at all. But success, hard to say.
