Welcome to Bigstock!
The first step is to set up your Bigstock account. Once your account has been established you will need to read our Contributor Tutorial. This will give you an overall idea of what you will need to do in order to submit content that Bigstock will accept into our collection. It will introduce you to basic concepts of successful commercial stock imagery, what is allowed under copyright law and what is not allowed, and the technical quality that will be required.
Only after you have passed the tutorial will you be able to enter a Profile Name in your account that will accompany all content you submit.
You will then also have access to the Upload Area.
Select ten of your best images, illustrations or vector files to submit. Your content will be reviewed for technical quality, commercial viability, accurate descriptions and keywords, and the appropriateness for the Bigstock collection.
The first time a contributor uploads images, there is a limit of 10 images that can be in the review queue. As your Approval Rate increases, you are allowed to upload more images. If your approval rate drops then the number of images you can upload will also drop.
Please know that we apply the same review standards to new contributors that we apply to any other contributors.
If your images are not approved on your first submission, don’t despair. Please review the Rejection Reason(s) provided on your images to gain a better understanding of our expectations. You can search for similar images that have been approved on Bigstock so that you can see the type of commercial, high quality content that will get approved.
DO's & DONT's for Uploading Your Content
These general guidelines for uploading content may change at any time. Please review them each time you consider uploading to Bigstock. We reserve the right to remove any previously accepted submission at any time for any reason from the Bigstock collection.

If submitted material contains any of these or other types of copyrighted content, you must either submit releases from the copyright owner or you must mark the images as editorial and create an appropriate caption in Dateline Format for the description.
