Advertisers post jobs on the site detailing the image they want and how much they will pay for that image. Photographers then compete to create the best image. Advertisers review the submitted images and may purchase the one that best meets their needs. Upon purchasing an image, the advertiser receives all the commercial rights to that image. Springwise says “customAdArt has the potential to save advertisers the time and money they would have spent trying to find the perfect image; photographers, meanwhile, are spared the necessity of “blindly shooting and hoping that someone might be interested in their particular image,” as the site puts it. Will crowdsourcing be as controversial in commercial photography as it has been in graphic design? Only time will tell. In the meantime, one to watch!”
