Flickr has launched a new idea to connect editors, bloggers, photo editors and other creative professionals with your iPhone pictures in a bid to sell them through their new platform, Curated Connections.
If you read our article a few weeks back about the iPhone Photography Awards, you’ll know just how incredible some of the photographs can be! iPhone technology has seriously changed the playing field for amateur photographers in recent years, and this step by Flickr could see us all having more access to incredible photographs. Amateur photographers and professional photographers alike will be able to earn money from their photographs through Flickr.

While this is not a new step entirely for Flickr, the range of professional licensing opportunities open to iPhone photographers is now so much larger!
Apple’s smartphones take 4 of the 5 most popular cameras list in the Flickr community.
The Flickr team are determined to make this as easy as possible for the general Flickr user, and want to help get great photo’s on Flickr available to the world.
“Getting discovered for creative opportunities is as easy as being a Flickr member and uploading the photos you love. Flickr’s curators are searching for exciting and credible opportunities for you to share your exceptional photography. They will reach out to you via Flickr Mail and provide details on Flickr’s licensing program”.
