Apply With Stocksy


Unfortunately, we are not accepting applications at this time.

Follow our social media if you are interested in future membership openings with Stocksy.

Image + Video Exclusivity

We require 100% exclusivity from our contributors. This means you can upload to multiple agencies, but the assets uploaded to Stocksy can only be sold with us. This allows you to maintain your autonomy and gives you the flexibility to promote your work through other product retailers or portfolios.

  • You CAN sell prints & products elsewhere
  • You CAN upload to other agencies
  • You CANNOT sell the same asset or sister assets at other agencies

Image Requirements

  • Minimum 6 megapixels
  • No upsampling / increased file sizes
  • We DO accept mobile photography
  • We DO accept film scans

Video Requirements

  • Minimum resolution of 1920 x 1080.
  • Clips should be between 5 -15 seconds long, or longer if required for context and impact.
  • No audio. Please remove all audio before exporting your clips.
  • Export as ProRes 422 .MOV files. If the video is from a 10-bit source, use ProRes HQ.
  • Do not adjust colors before uploading. Please submit neutral ungraded original colours, in Log if available. If the footage was captured in Raw, please convert to Log.
  • Upload all of the clips from a shoot at the same time. Separating shoots can cause major delays in our Editor’s workflow.

Member Participation

Stocksy accepts a limited number of members each year. This means that we look for artists that will not only actively contribute unique and original content to our library but who will also participate in elections, resolutions, voting, annual general meetings, engage in constructive feedback and building online community.


Don't change your style trying to emulate what you think Stocksy is looking for. We want to see what you're already good at and are looking for originality that brings new ideas and styles to the collection.

Common Questions

Do I need to upload photos and/or videos as part of my application? No, for the first step of the application process we’ll be looking at your supplied portfolios. Select applicants will then be invited for an interview as a second step.

Is it alright if photos and/or videos in my linked portfolios are already uploaded somewhere else? Yes, you can have assets in your linked portfolios that are currently being sold elsewhere. If your application is accepted and you would like to sell those images and/or videos with us, you would then need to deactivate them from all other sites. This includes sister assets.


How long will the Call To Artist be open? The Call To Artist will remain open for an estimated 2-5 months, until all spaces for the year have been filled.

How long will it take to receive a response? We will respond to all applicants. Due to the high volume of interest, it can take several months to receive a response.
