>> Big White Box
Earlier this year I had a very enthusiastic response when I featured photo library Fotolibra who showcase and sell amateur photos to commercial buyers. Not-for-profit site Big White Box has some similarities to FotoLibra, but here the emphasis is on attracting free publicity for your work, and raising money for charity if any of your pictures sell.
It’s free to sign up, and upload your photos. Any photos which are accepted for display in Big White Box’s virtual gallery can be purchased for £5. For each photo sold, 30p covers transaction and running costs, £2.70 goes straight to charity and you have the choice of keeping £2 for yourself or adding it to the charity’s coffers.
