Ditto.
I don't think I have that range or vision for them, but I will keep trying. :)
Great article.

Yes, I'm still waiting to find out if I made the cut.

Me too. As far as I'm aware nobody has been accepted yet.

Can anybody confirm this?

A couple of weeks ago I was browsing latest images on Stocksy and checking some profiles; doing this I came across 2 or 3 members with smaller portfolios, whose older images date from October 2017. Not sure when they signed, but I'd say in the actual Call to Artists ...

Last news from recente accepted contributor a week ago is only new 6/7 new contributors.

Maybe they are making short lists and then suddenly solve more requests.

I sent 4 partial sessions a lot of time ago that I reserve for stocksy in case of luck. What's new I'll send it to my usual places, productions cant stop!

I've noticed people talking about how your submission needs to adhere to 'their vision or style or colour palette'. However it seems to me that is not true at all, in fact this quote from the interview with Stocksy CEO/Co-Founder Brianna Wettlaufer says quite the contrary .. so don't give up hope if your style/colour palette doesn't meet what you've seen on Stocksy !

BW: Our editors are closely involved in reviewing the people that apply. In our first year it was anyone that had artistic merit and the same sort of visual goal that we were after. This last year, we've been looking for people who are going to grow what's in the collection.

That's an extension of the concerns of our members. If someone's shooting particular content in a particular style, and then we bring in someone who's doing the same thing, that's no longer going to be a collaborative relationshipit's going to get very competitive. So right now the focus is on finding people who expand the creative vision in some new way that doesn't encroach on what's already there.

even those accepted this month have the same color palette and tone of typical stocks.
they look for new content but the style must be similar. most of the photos posted here on this thread will not adhere. stocksy like neutral saturation...people keep uploading files who have too much colors in my opinion.

Please, could you say which day of September you received the email confirming that your application was complete? It is to calculate how many more days I have to wait for the answer. Thank you very much!

True, but if you read other threads on this same topic (applications for the last few years) you will find that there were people waiting 5-6 months for a refusal. We can still hope ofc :)

About 70 days; 2 months and 10 days. Well... this is always better than 5 or 6 months. ;D  We will wait patiently...

Thank you very much, shutterspeed! :)

I submitted mine in October. I've been working so hard (and still am) but given how few they accept, I know my chances are slim. Keep us posted guys and good luck to everyone waiting.

Sean and others, can you help me understand why a social media presence is sort of a requirement? I don't get it. The definition of stock imagery is images that are bought to serve a specific purpose. Why does it matter whether or not the creator has a footprint in social media?
Thanks.
