I think you need to get a lot of guys in their early 30's with beard, fancy sunglasses, a surf board under their arm and a Volkswagen van from the 80's (this is absolutely mandatory).
But, is it worth the effort?

What about similar or sister images from an existing shoot with the same model and location that's already selling on another agency's site, but not the same image? The 2017 open call application page did not indicate these images can not be submitted. Just need to make sure. Thanks!

The stocksy idea is cool and the project is fair, i think is the more friendly agency.

Part of this sucess secret is sell macro quality images at 1/4 price, great curation, real exclusivity and different style....(plainpicture cheaper style, stocksy didnt discover the hipsters)

People are earning good money there, but finally, what sells is lyfestyle images. Is ever the same history, "rare" images for be aproved, "stocky" images one time you are in. Worker smiling with crossed arms sell more than that hipster,s back in the forest.

All images i see here in this post arent enough unique or god for be in. Yes, i will apply but my images arent enough "unique" for be in.

No.  Stocksy is series exclusive.

I see that many, but not all, of the current Stocksey contributors have links to their websites from the Stocksy bio. I want to apply, and can provide a link to my website, but that is currently a very 'stock', (think Shutterstock, etc.) website, and I want to apply to Stocksy with some slightly different images that I've been working on.

My question is how important is it to have an independent website, and will Stocksy just look at mine and reject me because it is too mainstream stock? If I was approved, I wouldn't particularly want to link to my main website as, stylistically, it's very different to the kind of work I would want to submit to Stocksy.

The review team is pretty good at looking at the "whole picture", so showing an amount of other work may be a good indicator that you're serious about creating content.  That may be an important factor, as we would like to have more people that consistently upload.

Thank you Sean, that helps a lot.  I am finalising images for my application, and will submit over the weekend.

How many of you guys are submitting more than 25? I'm doing my best 25 (exclusive) but wonder if I should do more (like 50)

I've already done the model releases but then realized I didn't have to for an application ...

Because it said we can continue to upload as many as 100 I have added a few more because I figure if they reject me I can then upload them elsewhere. Hopefully they won't take too long to decide if they like us or not.

Is here anyone who submitted their work before? Do you get some kind of explanation why you aren't accepted? I would just love to have a feedback from them, no matter the outcome

I was rejected on the bases of aesthetic quality, doesn't get more ambiguous than that, I asked for more details but were not given.  I would suggest to get a look and feel of the Stocksy library and send images that you think would fit right in, but you have to be objective and honest towards yourself.

If images are approved, is there a facility to edit keywords/descriptions at a later date if you notice an error or something missing?

Images that are online, or in the queue can always be modified.

How long do they respond after the application? I have been waiting more than two weeks. I wonder how much longer to languish in anticipation.

No news yet for me. I was going to upload a few more yesterday and couldn't because my application is "currently under review". I wonder if it is one person who decides if you get accepted or several? Just curious about the process of accepting people...

That didn't prevent me from uploading more yesterday.

Thanks PhotoBomb. I can drag and drop them apparently but the green "Upload Assets" doesn't work anymore ... Wishing everyone luck on getting in!

My 2 cents: looks like they are "cleaning" the house first; noticeably photographers who have been contributors for some time but whom do not contribute regularly are back to submitting. I suspect that only after Stocksy "cleans" the house will they choose new contributors, accordingly to subjects and styles that are lacking in the "cleaned" house. So, there is no limit date to apply, there is no clear info on how many new contributors are being invited/approved and no clear info yet on when answers will be sent. It all will depend on how the "cleaning" goes.

I read - don't remember where, probably in this thread - that Stocksy is looking for contributors who will submit regularly, which to me makes sense as there is no sense in accepting a limited number of members and then these members do not contribute regularly.
