December 2010 earnings


December earnings were quite stable compared to last month and 9% up compared to December 2009. Distribution between media  changed slightly this month with audio (5%) earned more than video (1%), pictures accounted for  the remaining 94%.

Reporting by media

  • Photo
No BME to report this month and  Shutterstock is once again leading the pack, with Fotolia a not so distant second. Good performance of Veer which finished number three ahead of Istock.

  • Video
Dissapointing results this month and with only one clip sold, video took only 1% of total earnings.

  • Audio
With 5 % of total earnings, audio was close to a new  BME.

Looking up to 2011, I wish you a great photographic new year! Stay tuned for more blog updates in January  and in the meantime, you can follow my  updates on Twitter. You can also join my facebook photo page here.
