  1. Had a couple of these licenses: Worldwide: Usage: Ad and design. Marketing Package Use. Any size. Any placement. Excludes advertising. Repeat use within the terms of the license. Industry sector: Construction & Property
  2. Got the email inviting me to re-apply but I won't be filling the form in. Since 2008 I have filed 1,700 News pictures to Alamy which usually sell as stock weeks/months later. So there's nothing wrong with the images themselves but everything I shoot, News and non-News, is processed at home so I'll never be able to get them up within 60mins - a very deliberate personal choice from the very beginning of shooting digital. And anyway, what I give Alamy are alternatives to the first edit to "G", who, by the way, make sales for next day usage even though it's eventually uploaded sometimes 2-3hrs after the event. So, if it's the golden hour that's affecting my News sales then I'd rather not bother - preferring instead to get the material on Alamy as fast-turnaround Stock which allows it to be in the wider marketplace much sooner than News.
  3. I'd say that if one's pictures are interesting, then finding descriptives won't be a problem and paying others to insert them is only going to reduce what little profits there are left in this industry.
  4. I can see this going red at some point. Two simultaneous sales - similar rights, very different fees: £xx v £xxx.
  5. Well, for all of this: Usage: Business use, One of each of the following uses: Presentation, internal communication, student project, business website, small book (up to 1000 print run, excluding cover use), small magazine/newspaper (up to 1000 print run), a digital marketing campaign. Worldwide license. Excludes advertising. They got a good deal.
  6. I posted it because of the controversy that a picture has caused where the winner was purporting it be unstaged but where it clearly was.
  7. In case you missed it: https://blog.photoshelter.com/2019/03/the-problem-isnt-the-photo-contest-its-us/?&utm_source=memnl&utm_medium=PS_Emails&utm_content=contestsitsus&utm_campaign=&mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiWm1Fd05UUm1ObVl4T1RjNCIsInQiOiJZV2lHNDJYMkFhd1Y3SUFmQVlhRnpFNG83QWdZSTVCWFRZXC9sV0NMWkhCVGV5MDJKWHdcL0R2b3I0RjBZSnp1Y1FIS29ybUIzV1JsZmNscjZpMXBsWUZzM3RXM1c3ek5PMGNxUFhqb01NMDdiaFwvOUUrVkRBXC9pNkEwZDZ5dzhIS3QifQ%3D%3D
  8. A classic reason to keep in touch with local issues. To those wondering what to go out and shoot, I say read your local news - more especially if it has a national topicality.
  9. Commercial electronic Media: Promotional email, single design Industry sector: General business services
  10. Presentation. Of a car park? A pretty dull presentation, then. That files doesn't look lens-corrected, though
