From an official email from Photocase:

"Debt Cut
For all remaining photographer income that has not been claimed yet we offer 50%. This measure is a prerequisite for the survival of the agency. Yes, everyone loses 50% of their unclaimed earnings, but please keep in mind how much you have earned with Photocase so far and will still be earning. "


That means that if I had 300 earned but not withdrawed yesterday, today the balance appears with 150.

Seriously? They are cutting sales with retroactivity!!!

Is this even legal?

They are stealing money already earned (cutting it by 50%).
So not only cutting earnings of new sales but cutting MONEY ALREADY EARNED!

Is this legal?

Thank you for your comments, guys.

It's pointless to feel depressed for the rejection, especially when we do not even know the criteria to be accepted.

Just got my rejection yesterday.
I sent my application on november 2nd.
It took them more than 4 months...

Here you can see a gallery with both the pictures I submit and other pictures I showed them from my portfolio:

Good luck to those who do not have a reply yet.

Thank you!

I use safari, so it is a browser issue.

It is a Stocksy's issue. I can see no pictures on the entire website using Internet Explorer.

To everyone frustrated with the wait, I understand what you are saying.  But, remember one thing.  Stocksy is image exclusive so any image you may have there (and its similars) cannot be placed anywhere else.  Stocksy wants to make sure that both parties benefit from an acceptance.  In other words, they want you to sell.  They are taking their time to make as certain as possible that you will have every chance possible to be successful there.  It would be a disservice to you for them to take you on knowing that you may struggle there; to have your images gathering dust rather than working for you somewhere else.  That evaluation can take time; give them all the time they need to make a careful decision...it's a win for you whether you are accepted, or not.

Yes, true, it wouldn't help anybody if they accepted all applicants and most of them won't sell any images or worse if it drags down their image because people send in lots of crappy images as you find elsewhere... Nevertheless I think 3 months without any feedback is a very long time! Some sort of communication would have helped and it would still help to know when to expect a decision.

Exactly. I think there is no excuse.

We know that stocksy receive a huge applicants and only so much quota left for contributors.
I understand they might need some time to sort things out.
But what I dont understand, if they find some shortlist/candidates who already submit, why do they still open the application. On the other hand, if they're still looking for the right contributors to fit their collections, why they dont reject the old applicant first?
I just edit my image submissions and change some images into Non Exclusive and send them to another agency.  Because 3 months is a little too long for those images to wait.

Everyone keeps talking about pictures on hold. It is not what they ask for. We are free to use those images and sell them on other sites while we aren't part of Stocksy yet. All of us who applied should've known that it's a long wait, there are similar threads to this one for the applications before. Nothing weird and nothing new.

@selasasore, are you still waiting? It's been exactly 80 days from my application today, including weekends

Today is 3 months because their email saying my application is completed was sent at September 18th.

That's too much.
I don't know any other site, service or job that needs so long to answer for an application.

I am starting to think that the conditions for applying and how the entry process is managed is not fair for the candidates.

They ask for exclusive photos upfront, and given the time they take to say yes or no to each candidate, those pictures cannot be used in other agencies in the meantime.
Wouldn't it have been better to just ask for a portfolio as a reference to assess style, and only after saying yes to ask for the first submission...?

I think that more than one month (some pleople are even saying they have not been noticed after near 3 months...) is a very long time, regardless of the number of applications.

I am tempted to delete all the pictures, but I am not doing it yet because I know some people that are current contributors at Stocksy, and they say they are happy.

I hope that once you are accepted, the relationship contributor-agency is good, but mi first impression has not been very good so far...

You might want to read their FAQ again.
Exclusive content isnt required for the application.

You are right!  Thank you for pointing that out.
Sorry for the fuss, I don't know why, but I was convinced I read the pictures had to be exclusive. My bad.

EDIT: I misunderstood/misread the conditions to apply, and they are allowing non exclusive content as well.
However, I still think more than one month to reply is a long long time.

Sorry for my previous message.

I sent my submission a month ago, and no news so far.
Shall I assume a rejection?

It works again!

Technical issues aren't solved as quickly on the weekends I guess.
