Getty is Flickr bound

According to TechCrunch, Getty Images is going to be looking very closely at Flickr soon as it mines for images to add to a special section of its website.

Flickr members will likely try to do anything they can to become a part of the program, which stands to offer them both wide exposure and compensation for their work. Unfortunately, there’s currently no way for a Flickr member to apply to become a part of the program - they need to be “discovered” by Getty’s editors.

I probably have no chance of being discovered in the sweep, but man that would be sweet. Perhaps this should be encouragement to get more of my photos edited and up on the site.
