Flickr Unveils Licensing Program
There is a new way for Flickr photographers to monetize their content, as the image sharing service has announced a new licensing program available on its platform.
According to the announcement, Flickr’s curators are searching for credible opportunities for members to share their photography, and will reach out to members via Flickr Mail and provide details on the licensing program when opportunities arise. Plus, aside from licensing opportunities with photo agencies, Flickr is searching for original photo assignments for its members as well as ways to showcase member photos on the Flickr blog and across Yahoo properties like News and Travel.
“Today we are excited to introduce a new way for you to partner with photo agencies, editors, bloggers and other creative minds who are seeking original content like yours,” the Flickr blog posts states. “Our curatorial team will provide assistance, outreach and connectivity to help you get your photos licensed!”
Flickr notes that licensing is a great way for members to make money from their images, and that the company is looking to make the licensing process both transparent and easy. Those who are interested can sign up to be considered for the program and receive email updates.
