UK Newspaper Question

Question

I had a rare (for me) UK newspaper sale show up a couple of days ago. Very curious to know what kind of article it was used to illustrate. Does anyone know what paper it might be? It is my lowest sale ($) this month. These are the licensing terms:

 

Country: United Kingdom
Usage: Editorial
Media: Newspaper - national
Print run: up to 2 million
Placement: Inside and online
Image Size: 1/4 page
Start: 29 November 2019
End: 30 November 2019
Any placement in paper and online. One use in a single editorial article used within the print and digital versions of a single publication. Digital usage includes archive rights for the lifetime of the article.

 

Ta in advance.

All I can do in similar circumstances is to use the google image search or a general google search for your credit, but many UK newspapers only credit Alamy, some give no credit at all. I only track down about 40% at best of my sales.

As a long shot, you might try Googling topics associated with the image, including the date of usage. Not all of the UK papers hide behind a paywall and you might get lucky.

 

Alternatively, if you were to cite the gross fee John, it would be easier for other contributors to check against their own records for that period.

 

The papers do pay peanuts for online usage, but, in fairness, some of the redtops do use multiple images with most of their stories.

I agree, licences like this match those I've had in the Sun and Times Newspapers.

Not quite a match with my latest use in The Times - it was editorial and worldwide.

No print run mentioned. Single figure sale.

 

But these sales often seem  to be very easy to find in use in a Google Image search. I found the recent one in two secs.

It was gross alright -- $7.62

Thanks. Fortunately, the scheme doesn't seem to like me much. I get very few UK newspaper sales.

If you peer in here  you will see that only 3 UK daily nationals apear to have circulations above 1 million

 

(Your dates were a Friday and Saturday.)

 

So options appear to be 

 

The Metro -

The Sun 

The Daily Mail

 

Best of luck!

Thanks, Bryan. The Daily Mail seems to be the most likely culprit, but no luck. I guess my photo has been swallowed by the black hole of "in perpetuity". Oh well.

 

I'm surprised that The Guardian has such a low circulation. It's  one of the most interesting newspapers on the planet IMO.

That will be the Daily Telegraph, Betty.  I had one for the same terms (different start and end date) and price drop in this morning and it was one that I'd already seen.

Thank you, John. It’s only the second or third time I’ve ever sold to UK papers. Hen’s teeth comes to mind in rarity.

This is my only UK newspaper scheme sale during the past "rolling year".

 

However, I've had numerous non-UK newspaper sales at much better prices during the same time period. The highest was $80 (USA).

The left is in a state of disarray at present, it appears that a majority follow the banal warblings of the DM. I confess to be a Guardian concise crossword addict, and should really give them a small Xmas present. I don't know if that paper will be able to struggle on for much longer without a paywall to protect its online offering.

The Guardian does get a little over the top sometimes, but I really enjoy most of their articles. I should give them a small Xmas present as well. It would be shame if they folded. They're probably afraid of losing readers if they put up a paywall.

 

I'd say that everything is in a state of disarray these days -- left, right, and centre.

I pulled out of the newspaper scheme because of the single figure prices, and stories and pictures get copied/ripped off online around the world.

I've found a few images of mine that were used by newspapers with Copytrack, that google search and Tineye didn't pick up.

Following other folks advice on here led me to Copytrack, I've been uploading my zooms and news submissions there. Not found any illicit use yet though...

I do an occasional search on the news section of google with my name in inverted commas, plus 'photo'. That turns up usages from years ago which I've forgotten.
