Did anyone else get an invitation from Getty/iStock to participate in a brief for their area?  I don't see it on the website, but it popped up when I was on the app.  A friend of mine, who lives in the same area, said he didn't get one so I'm not sure how people are chosen for this type of thing.  I've never had it pop up before.

Also, does this mean the images have to be exclusive?  The invite doesn't mention anything about being exclusive, but when I was looking on the website, it looks like they are.

Mmm Better to forget It in my opinion...
I received a lot of invitation in the past for my area, all about US cities... And I live in Italy  ;D

My opinion is based on my experience, of course! What else? :)
As I said, I received a lot of invitation for "random" places... so I didn't give them good credit.

You ask about this invitation and I told my experience, based on what I directly saw.
Which kind of answers do you expect from your post? If it's good for you, it's ok.

Asking something like "exclusivity or not" is quite strange, you can read the specific agreement for every single assignment (of course is always exclusive, by the way....). The same is for how much they pay (really poor in my my opinion), you can red by yourself in their agreement.

Apart of this, the only thing I can add is that IN MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE they are simply looking random around the world someone available for their need, and this (always in my opinion) is not really serious.

I was just curious if you had participated in the invitation.  Obviously not.  No need to be snotty about it.

Not sure why my question about exclusivity is strange.  I stated that there was NO mention of it in the offer.  I had to dig to find even a little info, and still wasn't sure if it pertained to my particular offer.  And there is no agreement to be found, so I was asking fellow users about it.
