As we move into October I planned to upload some shots of pumpkins and other squashes ripening in autumn sunshine that we have been enjoying recently in the UK. I shot the images two weeks ago when I was visiting the West country. I had intended to submit them as "news" in the hope of catching the eye of picture editors preparing their halloween stories. But as I got ready to submit them I noticed the "shot in the last 48 hours" requirement for news images - so I've submitted them as standard stock, but of course they will now disappear into the thousands of similar images on Alamy. There are numerous seasonal events throughout the year and newspapers and magazines often prepare for them well in advance, so we should do the same. How do other contributors feel about an additional "news" category called (say) "topical" to be distributed on the feed to customers who request it containing images of the next seasonal event(s) in the calendar irrespective of when they were shot?
