We’ve teamed up with image agency Zoonar and we’re rewarding photographers for the first 200,000 images added to our system! For every image which passes our quality control contributors will receive €0.15, which doesn’t affect future earnings.
Accepted images will be marketed on both Zoonar and Polylooks without contributors needing to do any work, including being added to the Picturemaxx sales channel. Images are also non-exclusive, so they can be sold on other microstock platforms, and we’ll also provide cost-free German language keywording for your images, if required.
For more information, follow the link to contribute images for sale online.

The race for Number 10 Downing Street has begun, and the UK General Election 2010 is set to be the most online-focussed campaign
thus far. Bloggers, publishers, agencies, all will be looking for election images to use with their content, as will political interest groups, in the weeks running up to polling day on Thursday 6 May, 2010.
When selecting election images to accompany UK General Election-related content, to comply with copyright laws it may be difficult to find images you have the right to use. Many images of party leaders and other MPs will have been taken by freelance or newspaper photographers which means that without the right relationships – or paying for the privilege – publishers will have to look elsewhere for election-related images. You simply can’t copy and paste images of politicians and other ‘intellectual property’ found on the Internet and use it for your own content. This is where stock image suppliers such as Polylooks come in handy.
Selecting election images: Cast your vote!
Picking a suitable election image for your publication or blog depends a lot on look and feel. You may want to engage the colourful paraphernalia of an election campaign or you may want something a little more sober to reflect the seriousness of what is likely to be the most important election since 1997. Using the ‘Emotion’ option on Polylooks, you can find the right look and feel for your election image.
Another thing to consider is the colour scheme. The main three UK parties will be proudly displaying their reds, blues and yellows, so if you’re focussing on any particular party, be sure to use the Polylooks colour filter.
Polylooks has around 500,000 images on sale, including more than 450 parliament images, plus buying through stock images sites such as ours guarantees that you’ll not be breaching any copyright in the weeks running up to the election.
Polylooks contributors have been preparing for the election and you’ll find a wide selection of illustrations, compositional photographs and other relevant election images especially created for the UK General Election 2010. Whatever your politics, it promises to be an intriguing contest and we’ve got the right images for you on Polylooks.
