Stocksy United: New Co-Op Where Photographers Share Ownership and Profits

 

blogpersoningallery

Stocksy United is calling itself a new artist-owned co-op.

Stocksy United has developed a new model for stock photography focused on shared ownership and profit-sharing. The new site is owned by its photographer-members and dedicated to paying them the highest possible fee for their photographs.

Photographers who are members of Stocksy United will receive 50% royalty on each transaction and 100% of extended licensing fees. Members will also receive equity in the company giving them input on business operations and 90% of all profits will be divided among the members at the end of the year.

Founder of the new Stocksy United , Bruce Livingstone also previously founded iStockphoto. Livingstone says–“There’s no reason these artists shouldn’t be able to earn a living from what they produce.”  He believes that Stocksy United will  change the stock photography industry permanently—and for the better.

It’s expected that this philosophy of sharing will certainly make Stocksy United the preference for conscious-minded designers looking for quality images.

How are your Italian and German language reading skills for completing some of these submissions? If you need help try Google Translate.

ArticulAction

The focus of this edition is on exploring the effectiveness of synergy in contemporary art. Every work of art consists of the *articulation* between varied experiences whose contribution persists in their existence even when the work is finished. But how apparently different techniques are capable of working together in order to create a harmonious artistic composition?

About 6 weeks ago, Michael Krasowitz started his blog The Daily Krasowitz where he posts a new fine art print each day. As Michael said,

“The goal is to create a print a day for the year ahead and write a bit about the experience.”

The artist also reports that he has had over one thousand blog views so far, already exceeding his expectation.

His fine art prints are really quite amazing, as you can see by the two examples here. View many more images of his work on the Daily Krasowitz.

Applications will be accepted online only through CaFÉ Call for Entry

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: MARCH 31, 2013

The Miami Science Museum is a new 250,000 sf science museum in Museum Park in Miami, Florida. The site is approximately four acres, immediately adjacent to a four-acre parcel that will house the new Perez Art Museum Miami. Both buildings and their grounds are within the approximately 28-acre Museum Park in downtown Miami, and the two new institutions will sit atop a new joint parking structure with a plaza linking the two museums.

Key components of the new Miami Science Museum include a 35,000 sf aquarium, a planetarium, and approximately 30,000 sf of indoor and outdoor science exhibits. The aquarium is planned to be one of the iconic elements of the Museum, visible from the exterior, and spanning all the floors of the Museum. The planetarium, one of the centerpieces of the current Museum, will expand its technology and its programs. It is strongly desired to have the flexible museum exhibits both indoor and outdoor to take advantage of the climate, and the possibilities that outdoor exhibits bring to the site and the museum experience. A highly sustainable building is planned, including LEED rating, to reduce energy costs, and to act as a showcase for the latest energy management and control technology.

What is the ” Micro Mecenat ” Arts Funding Platform!?

Micro Mecenat is an online platform in Japanese and English that applies the concept of micro funding to artist posted  projects.

“Mecenat” is a French word taken from Maecenas, a historic character famous for supporting artists and poets in the Roman era. Therefore a Mecenat is a sponsor or patron of the arts.

Rather than do the standard Kickstarter campaign seeking US funders your art project, try Micro Mecenat to connect with Japanese funders.
