NO !
Not with all the mess and the poor knowledge in their review-team.

Try to buy an audio and see what i mean!

I don't upload there as I don't make video, but I would like to see them grow. They have potencial as IS, DT and most low earners are slowly dying. P5 should make efforts to get those clients that today are heading to SS and FT. I would gladly upload my port there.

I have all my images there and 250 videos. I have had 5 video sales this month and I am loving it. I think we need to stay positive about Pond 5 as they are a fair trade agency who deserves our support.  I'll admin that I don't sell too many images, but my video is starting to get a small amount of traction. So while I get hosed on DT and IS, I make it up on P5. Trade one for the other is the frustration in micro.  Growing revenue as a whole is far more challenging. If Bigstock is successful at launching their 15 cent video it will be incumbent on video contributors to yank their content from BigStock and, if necessary, from SS. However, BigStock, if successful, may heavily influence MS video as a whole. The only way to stop it is to not contribute to BigStock en masse.

I agree. Pond5 is the ONE agency that we should fully support now, the ONLY fair agency there is. Besides, they have been the king in videos for a long time, not just another new start-up that we dont know about. With the recent development at BS (hence SS), we should really sort out our priorities. Please stop picking on Pond5 for small things, there are much larger problems in this industry right now.

i really enjoy the mix of freedom and sales on pond5 very much. I sincerly hope they become just as strong in photos as they are in video.

3 weeks and waiting for the review of my first submissions?

A leader cannot afford these delays.
