Title: "exciting" News from Getty

Briefs are moving home! Soon you will be able to browse briefs and submit your content, all in ESP. And we’re not stopping there… later in the year we will be introducing a new, simpler look to the ESP website, so stay tuned!

Maybe [idle speculation] too many people were opting out of the briefs emails, or ignoring them.

Count me in, I don't even know what "briefs" are.

Those things you wear around your lower regions.

I not at all interested in being paid peanuts for jobs that should be contracted at day rates. Small wonder people have ignored these offers.

Thats right Pete!  but of course they will lure plenty of noobs to do this for dimes and cents and the poor sods will fall for it! not knowing that dayrate photography following layouts and briefs is min,  $1000 a day. In places like N.Y and London its double!

The most interesting part of the post is ‘a new simpler look’ to their website

let me guess, it shows less useful information and takes longer before we actually see it but is full of little touches that the designers think are awesome but just annoy users.

I guess briefs are a huge failure and they are trying to push them hard down the throat.

I wonder if any pro would take the time to even read them. When I reviewed the program I was astonished. If they would pay 10x /image (literally) I might take the chance. Briefs are ok if somedy is searching for any simple image or something you have on your HD. To arrange a shoot with models and locations for such a low reward "if" you get rewarded is just crazy.

Or? A brief is a document that is submitted to a court by a party to a lawsuit.

Not as much fun as intimate apparel kinds of "briefs"

"exciting" news from Getty usually means not "sustainable" for content creators.

I only give Getty stuff that was declined by my 2 top exclusive agencies, and even then I prefer Adobe/SS. I don't care for their briefs anyway, Adobe still does the best briefs.

Hi Gillian, I didn't know Adobe did briefs. Where do we find them?
