    Getty Images and Flickr Announce Exclusive Partnership to Offer New Collection of Creative Imagery


    http://www.foxbusiness.com/story/mar...on/-1271567956

    TORONTO, Jul 8, 2008 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) ----New Flickr collection on gettyimages.com to provide customers even more authentic, diverse and regionally relevant imagery.

    Getty Images, the world's leading creator and distributor of visual content and other digital media, and Flickr, a division of Yahoo! Inc. (Nasdaq: YHOO) and one of the world's largest photo sharing communities, today announce a collaboration that unites the authenticity of images from the Flickr community with Getty Images' imagery collections, photographic expertise and unrivalled experience in licensing digital media.

    The exclusive partnership allows Getty Images to invite Flickr members to participate in a Flickr branded collection on www.gettyimages.com that will be available for licensing to Getty Images' creative, commercial and editorial customers in the coming months.

    July 8, 2008, 7:04 pm Great Photo on Flickr? Getty Images Might Pay You For It

    By Miguel Helft



    http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/0...ref=technology

    If you are a photographer with high-quality images posted on Yahoo’s Flickr service, you may soon get an e-mail inviting you to become a paid contributor to Getty Images, the world’s largest distributor of pictures and video.

    Yahoo and Getty Images said Tuesday that they have entered into a partnership under which Getty editors will comb Flickr in search of interesting images. They will then invite photographers to participate in the program and ensure that their images have the proper releases to be licensed legally. Those who are included in the program will get paid at the same rates that Getty pays photographers who are under contract with the company.

    pros the world over will need to brace for another big one when this gets implemented. as it is agencies and companies mine flickr for their their varios needs.

    this is really the next logical step for flickr. thats a big community filled with a lot of talent no other agency can probably match. postings i believe is in the range of 2M+/ day so your bound to find what you need.

    just keep on posting on your flickr site and they'll be the one who will choose from you photo stream.

    I have been a contributor to the Getty Flickr Collection since 2009. First, I was asked to submit 10 photos from my flickr gallery, then they initially selected 6. Now I have 84 photos on sale. Once you become a contributor, Getty curators and editors who will visit the streams and select images for inclusion. Model/Property release is mandatory for all selected photos.

    On the side note, I'm still wondering based on what criteria Getty Images select your pictures. They selected 7 photos which I think are just so-so. The ones I considered one of my best were not.
