Quote for image use by games publisher?

Hi all,

I've been approached by a games publisher via photographers direct. They are interested in one of my images for the box front, for worldwide non exclusive rights without any
delay limitation?

I've asked them about the estimaged print run, to get a better calculation.

What do people think would be a suitable fee?

Using a price calculator and using Advertising, packaging, major image, and 50,000 - 100,000 print run, this generates an average of 1400.

Thanks in advance.

Depends on the game and the publisher. 50 -100 thousand isn't a massive amount of games sales...especially worldwide.
I reckon, after some research into who and what it is, you could ask for more than that.

The company is Gigamic and a quick google shows its a reputable company with worldwide distributers. I'll wait to hear back from them.

Good luck mate. The image request on PD smacks of the outfit turning micro though - a sign of the recession biting?

I do hope they come through with a decent price for the front cover - take nothing less and let us know how you get on!

Best regards

Cheers Ian. I received an email this morning and they've chosen another togs picture, but at least it was good to be considered.

I'll need to add more stock photo's this year though.
