Dreamstime is one of the top tier microstock agencies and the top 3 reasons to stay as a contributor are written as follows:
1.High commissions. "Microstockdiaries" wrote about it: "Their commission for photographers is 50%, among the highest in the market, and certainly the highest of the top tier microstock agencies". In fact it's from 50% to 80%
2.Leveled value for images. There are 5 levels an image can reach when downloaded often... The more it gets downloaded the bigger the level... and the bigger the level the more it pays you.
3.Assignments. Every month dreamstime puts up an assignment - a great opportunity to display your images on the dreamstime home page. You increase the exposure of your images, raise their level to top level (for images accepted in the competition) and eventually win an iPod (the usual prize but some assignments prize you with $1000) if your image gets the most votes.
I have been here for less than a month but found that its a good site (clean and fair) and user friendly. The only thing is that once you submit, you have to wait for a long time for it to be accepted or rejected, but thats what standing in queue means I suppose :-)
Dreamstime has always gone above and beyond to be fair to their contributors. Nobody beats them! I'll be here until the end of time, just to be associated with so many astonishingly beautiful photographs. I never logon without having my breath taken away by the beauty of the work on this site.
I would add anothers reasons but the number 3 sounds good for the ad proposal. For example 4) DT approval time is one of the shortest of the market 5) User interfase design truly easy for everybody, especially if you are newbie. I liked your DT world illustration too. Cheers!
