Hi everyone,

I just found out that the agency Zoonar has started uploading images to SS.
Does anyone know what this move is for? Feeding another agency with images seems to be a weird strategy to me...

Regards  :)

This was posted by Michael / Zoonar in October:
Shutterstock (NEW): Only Photos, which are not at Shutterstock, especially local content from german, austria and switzerland (middle europe), Creative and Illustration. Makes only sense for Photographers which are not at Shutterstock or doesn`t have the time to submit there.

With 240 images in zoonar's port on ss, I guess most people found the time to upload direct to ss.

On the other hand - there may be some photographers that have few good images from their trip to Germany but never passed Shutterstock's entry test.

Mr. Krabs, the owner of Zoonar himself, wrote some time ago in a German blog that this option makes no sense for people who already upload directly to Shutterstock.

Right, we have many photographers from Germany, Austria and Switzerland they have no time for new agencies. They are not typical microstockers, many of them are hobby photographers with very good photos and they started with midstock agencies some years before. Now they want to submit their photos from Zoonar to some other photo agencies to earn more money. And they want us to do the work. We offer 8 distribution ways now, but we hope to offer much more in some months. The photographers just have to do ONE work process for all these agencies. More than 100.000 photos are now waiting for the transfer and quality check at Shutterstock. That shows us, that this kind of offer could work.

One example why it makes sense to use an image distributor like Zoonar: All photos for Alamy gets essential keywords and a keyword translation from our team. Zoonar is a good solution for all photographers which have not the time to submit to 10-20 agencies. 

Sorry for my bad english ;-)
