Which country selection list?

Stocksy says it's interested in some locations, such as Western Europe. When you apply there is a form where you answer some questions about your work - there is a question about location; in my case, Portugal is not an option (and it is Western Europe), there is only, if I recall correctly, France and Germany.

is good.  i like stocksy as an high end rf agency.
i'm more a travel/generalist/doicumentary photographer.
i will apply mostly my best images for rf. exclusivity means if i travel in a country stocksy want all photos from the same trip?

Nope.

I'll ask about the list.  I hadn't seen that part.

I tried to submit an application but 4k videos in prores 422 HQ aren't even recognized... If I have to re-encode them in h264 I don't see a lot of interest in doing so...

I can understand the appeal of Stocksy for photo.
But frankly, if your doing video, why on earth should you go exclusive?

Why not putting some to test the water...

Yes, h264 is the format we use for delivery.

Its really easy! Finalcut -> Masterfile -> h264 and your done. And thinking that you probably have to do a rough selection of what Stocksy would take, then its not so time consuming as you might first think :)

Hey Sean

You've mentioned in the write up that you guys are looking for people from asia to contribute stuff. However in the country selection list the only names i could find were Hong Kong. No love for India, Malaysia and all others?


And Hong Kong isn't even a country.

Sean, do you by any chance know if Stocksy is interested in timelapses/hyperlapses? So that I don't waste anyone's time if there is no interest.

Well, we've got some, which would seem to indicate they'd probably like more.  https://www.stocksy.com/search?text=timelapse&type=video&sort=latest&page=1

hi sean i '0d like to ask one thing and hope to have an answers about what you think.
i'd like to upload, but i'm a bit sceptic about my photos. i found they can have a place in the collection, cause especially in travel i see a lot of holes in stocksy. i love colors, and do pp like everybody, sometimes i apply some cross processing or vico filter, to create a moody photos, but especially in travel photography i prefer to boost saturation.
looking the collection what i see is 95% of photos are desaturated and with pale tonality.
It seems like the world has the same colors, a bit like instagram nowadays, where you can find people flying from iceland to peru and have always the same color palette.
do you think true colors fidelity has a place in stocksy or not?
the only contributor i'd say has beautiful colors tonality is felix hug from what i saw. in addiction it seems as stocksy don't like real colors.

If image/series exclusivity is required, does this mean images that have never been sold elsewhere, or can I use images that have previously been available as long as I remove them from other sites?

Stocksy said the last time, that you can sell them on Stocksy but you have to remove them from other sites.

Is there a grace period for Alamy contributors?  Image removal takes 6 months there.

I'm going to say you shouldn't submit those, then.

Any estimate of when / how quickly does the Stocksy team revert with their decision regarding one's application?

It won't be immediate.  Usually they take time to look at the person's portfolio site, look into them a little deeper, maybe set up an interview.  With this new paradigm, I'm not really sure.

Not hearing anything is better.  I'm told declines may start going out this week.

Sean please one question, when logged and ready to upload images, will image review team judge my contributor status looking at my portfolio on my website (link provided during registration), or will they look only and even give more focus to images I upload through a Stocksy website (ones that are ready for sale if accepted))?

They will also look at the portfolio and use any other information given as well.

The "country" list doesn't disqualify anyone.  It's just a list of places they wanted to flag.  I passed this thread on to see if they wanted to add more.

I don't use Instagram much at all with only ten posts. Would it be more harmful to link it or should I start uploading more?
