Introducing the deviantART Collection on Fotolia

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 17, 2012, 2:26 PM
Today, we are announcing the launch of the deviantART Collection on Fotolia, a selection of over 3,000 images from artists on deviantART. It is a grand experiment bringing together the excellence of work on deviantART with an opportunity for artists to gain worldwide commercial exposure for their work.

:star: What is the deviantART Collection?

A while back, we announced our partnership with through the StockProject group, where you can find hundreds of free stock images. We teamed up with Fotolia once again to create the deviantART Collection. 

A team of professional photo editors started filtering through images on deviantART looking for excellent photographs that would work on commercial websites, like Fotolia, that sell images for designers and art directors to use in magazines, advertisements and product packaging. The team then offered artists on deviantART an opportunity to place their work, non-exclusively, into the deviantART Collection.

Right now, the deviantART Collection launched with over 3,000 images by fine art photographers in over 50 countries. These numbers will grow if the commercial response is as awesome as we expect it to be. The big twist here is to offer high artistic and conceptual value within the context of stock photography users. We are all tremendously impressed with the results.

The artist royalty rates are the best offered by Fotolia and will be paid and monitored through deviantART. The participating artists are free to sell on their own or join other stock services, but the deviantART Collection as a group is exclusive to Fotolia.

:star: What can I find in the deviantART Collection?

Here's just a sample of some of the amazing work being made available to designers and art directors around the world:

:star: What does this mean for the stock community on deviantART?

There will be no changes for the stockers now on deviantART. You can browse for stock and resources on deviantART here, but remember to check with the deviant for their terms for using their stock.

Be sure to watch or become a member of StockProject for all the latest updates and to check out the great free stock resources there.

:star: A round of applause!

This project has taken nearly a full year to pull together and we sincerely congratulate everyone involved for their hard work! Most importantly, thank you to our participating deviants -- we're truly excited to have you as a part of this venture and we appreciate your contributions in helping to make it a success.

I managed to get through several pages of the dA stock folder on Fololia and so far there are some amazing pictures! It is such a wonderful idea to have a shared interest in posting stock. :aww:
SanIakob Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist is it that in that collection there are images which are not in the stock galleries of dA?

Because they approached photographers asking if we would consider letting our ART be used as high quality stock ;) So the photos offered up were not originally meant to be stock photos
