123RF announces Editorial Content section


In the last newsletter, 123RF is inviting the contributors to upload Editorial contents with the intention to open the section to the market at the end of February 2010. Here some significant quotes:

Yes, it's good news for those of you who've been waiting for this moment. 123RF.com is now accepting editorial content. We would like to invite you to upload your editorial images or illustrations to us

What happens next?
Images will be accepted and reviewed now. However, they will not appear immediately on the site. Once we have sufficient content, we will then launch the editorial content on 123RF.com. We anticipate this to happen at the end of February 2010.

Here are a few guidelines to be followed:

What are classified as editorial images?
Editorial images are generally photos or illustrations of newsworthy events, or famous people or locations with people often without model releases. These images can and are often used only in Editorial publications such as newspapers, magazines, news articles, academic publications and sometimes used in news related TV footage.

What we want!

  • social events & other newsworthy events
  • celebrities, personalities and interesting people
  • live sports and music events
  • world events and natural disasters

  • certain images portraying social issues

What we don't want!

  • Images which are not editorial/newsworthy in nature
  • Images which are too similar to other/previously submitted content
  • Images which are not described in a proper manner (you'll need to rekeyword/describe them)
  • Images which are sold elsewhere as RF/RM commercial
  • Images which are offensive or lewd in nature
  • Images which are not technically sound
    • too blur,
    • grainy,
