I would prefer not to advertise the gaps!

 

Picture needs by forum suits me too - prefer these to be genuine buyer needs

You mean with over 100 million images there are still gaps?

Just kidding, email please.....

Will the picture needs come with a proposed budget?

Forum would be my first choice, e-mail second. What the heck is twitter?

Email for me - also allows Akamy to be more selective if required, like it or not we all specialise 

 

Please not Twitter (even if I do use it regularly) we do not want to over publicise the needs, that is outside the Alamy regulars

Forum is fine, at least people that keep alive the community suggest improvements help other and newbie can have a little reward for their effort. E-mail maybe can be used for more specific needs, when you know that someone has the access to the specific needs, just as an example the geographical advantage to live near where events, news, place of your interest are.

Definitely email. Plenty of contributors travel and it's much easier to check your email than browse the forums when traveling.

I'm on Twitter but I don't check it every day. And, even though I'm following Alamy I'm not sure I always see your tweets.

E-mail with the "Pictured Needs" name in the title, is the best for ensuring it gets seen, followed by a special thread here, twitter is pointless unless the photographer sets up notifcations, but even then if like me you are on twitter, it's easy to miss things

Email and forum with much more specificity.

 

I've just moved to the New Hampshire seacoast area and I'm looking at all the searches for New Hampshire and Maine that appear to have gone unfulfilled even though there are thousands of images to choose from.

I would like to be informed at a leisurely lunch at one of the nicer restaurants in Dumbo near your Brooklyn office. :)
