SnapVillage, empowered by Corbis, has announced the beta opening of a fresh, interactive and innovative online marketplace for user-generated photography at www.snapvillage.com. The new website has no membership fees and is now accepting submissions from photographers anywhere in the world and offering image licensing in the United States.
  • Innovative “Pick Your Own Price” Model Gives Photographers Flexibility and Control by Letting them Price Imagery at Price Points from $1 to $50 with No Exclusivity Requirements
  • SnapVillage to act as Photographer Farm Club for Corbis, Giving Top Photographers the Chance to Move to a Premium Website
  • Smart, Simple, Fresh Interface as well as Straight-forward Pricing and Purchasing Makes Website User-Friendly for Buyers
  • Rich Interactivity Features and Proprietary ‘Snappyness’ Rating Make Finding Great Imagery Easy and Fun by Leveraging Community to Identify the Best Pictures

“SnapVillage is a major step forward for microstock with fresh, thoughtfully designed innovations that simplify and improve the experience of licensing low-cost, user-generated, royalty-free photography via the Internet,” says Gary Shenk, incoming Chief Executive Officer, Corbis. “We''re excited about also using SnapVillage as a farm club to find great photographers who can sell their photographs on Corbis.”

Aside from providing contact and PayPal information, the website does not require any application or approval processes for photographers or any pre-pay obligations of buyers. While in beta, SnapVillage will be actively listening and incorporating customer feedback and introducing enhancements to the website on a continuous basis over the coming months.
