What is The EyeEm Collection?

The EyeEm Collection is a partnership between EyeEm and image licensing partners such as Getty Images and Alamy. The images that become a part of this collection are hand selected by our photo curators and represent the some of the strongest images found on EyeEm Market.

When your photo becomes a part of the collection, your image has the opportunity to sell not only through EyeEm Market but also via our partners. This means more buyers will see your image giving you a greater chance to sell.

How do I know if my photo is in The Collection?

When your photo is selected for The Collection, you will receive an email, as well as a notification in your Market dashboard, which will display the chosen image.

Is the revenue split and pricing different for images in The Collection?

Pricing may vary among partners, dependent on their pricing models as well as the size of the image sold. Just as all other photos on EyeEm Market, the net revenue is shared 50/50 between you and EyeEm.
