Experiment 2: acceptance rates

Following one of my previous posting about the acceptance-rejection of a small batch of pictures submitted to different microstocks I would like to publish my acceptance rates on 10 different websites the last 3 months.

Ranking from lowest to highest approval rate:

1.CT
2.IS
3.SS
4.DT
5.FT
6.BSP
7.CSP
8.123RF
9.LO
10.SV



Two comments here on FT and BSP . FT approval is a bit low due to the fact that this where I started contributing by sending average pictures, approval is better now.

I don't really know why BSP rate is so low (56%), my only explanation being that the style of my pictures does not fit with their agency.

IS is very tough on reviewing (27 % accepted) followed by SS, CT taking the smallest number of pictures (24 %) but it is clearly mentioned on their website.
On the extreme, I have 100 % approved on SV but I don't think it is too difficult they pretty much take everything but sell nothing as well....

Will post an update in few months to see how it is changing !




As always if you want to try different microstocks please use my referral links above, thanks:)

Thanks for your comment but like I wrote SV accepts pretty much everything and sales are not happenning and this is the most important. I prefer to have a lower acceptance rate but sell like for SS.
It looks like that Featurepics is 100 % as well....
