Seems a little counterproductive to keep people in the dark about what kind of images they're looking for.  The contributors who've been rejected may have very well had images in their portfolio that met the required criteria, but the secrecy surrounding that criteria may have ultimately led to rejection.  Doesn't make sense to me.

Agreed.  All seems a bit "cloak and dagger" to me.  I'll hold off trying to get in until I know what they are looking for.  Doubt they'd want me anyway.  I'm not an "artist".   I mostly just have boiler plate stock.

For those who have the request to see 10 images, I wonder if we should ask what sort of material is expected for review? Ask if they are reviewing technical only or if they are also critiquing subjects.

Any word on the final use of the 10 images? Are they for inspection only? If accepted, do they go on to the site? If on to the site, then there might be exclusivity problems with other sites if you are exclusive at other sites.

I agree with leaf - instead of shotgunning, you may want to wait until after the 25th to have a better idea, and it should be pretty clear then, I'd think.

Hey leaf quoted me in saying that!

It is your choice to submit in the dark.   If your porfolio is not the best work,  then I would question people saying that stocksy does not know what they are doing by judging it to be a contributor.

Congrats!
How long after you made the initial inquiry did they contact you?
I gave my email a little over a week ago and haven't heard back.

The images will be added to your portfolio but you can deactivate them after if you want.

I'm guessing this is a good indication of what they'd like to see:

Interesting. Apparently they want images of roses laid out to spell the "C" word.

My guess is they want niche and artsy stuff, not so much the girl holding a blank sign, the fruit basket and travel photos. Not that they don't want ordinary stuff, just that they probably have chosen them already and don't want a million variations of the same thing. This is just a wild guess. Denis

If thats their niche then they are not aiming to become the next stock site. Not by a long shot, thats very conceptional arty imagery. I dont think that stuff will be downloaded by the millions, not be because its not good, but because its very conceptional. Its not going to be about a handshake or a businesswoman.

I'm wondering, what percentage of your portfolio will fit their criteria?

Isn't this what the file of the week on IS always looked like.  Some low selling artsy farts photo that had very limited comercial use while the photo that eventually got 15000 downloads never started out as image of the week.

So if I open up a new gallery and desaturate everything and throw in some lens flare there is hope?
