Stocksy Reopens ‘Call To Artists’ For First Time In Years

Stocksy United, an artist-owned platform co-op that licenses premium photos and videos to leading agencies and brands, has  reopened its Call to Artists. For the past 2 years, one could only become a contributor at Stocksy through private invitation, so the reopening is a significant opportunity for photographers and filmmakers who have been interested in joining the ranks. Stocksy is known for a unique model that focuses on supporting artists’ careers, paying out high royalties (50-75%), and a dedication to creative integrity of their collection. (Stocksy reports that, in 2016, it paid out $6 million USD in royalties and $300,000 USD in dividends to their artist-shareholders.) “We’re on the hunt for artists with an edge and eye for storytelling. We want color palettes that bring intrigue and lighting that challenges assumptions as we evolve past Instagram styles and challenge artistic directions in 2018.” said Brianna Wettlaufer, CEO, Stocksy. “As we mature as a co-op, we’re also welcoming collectives and agencies looking to have their work represented to apply.”
