Wow ... I made a submission to Designer Spotlight last night and woke up to an approval in my mailbox this morning.
Wow ... I had to wait a couple months for the last approval.
Things are rockin' at istock!

me too !!

Mine got approved last night too, I submitted it 3 or 4 weeks ago when I remember correctly. It seems they wait for some designs to appear in their inbox and then push them through all at once.

And, I just learned that each time a design is approved, the photographers whose images were used in the design receive a message from the admins.

Congrats to all with the new DS accepts!

What's really neat is Istock now sends e-mail notifications to photographers regarding picture usage.

I love seeing the new designs coming through! Some great stuff in there.
I wish this week's DOTW was available in the iStock store, though!! The calendar is awesome.

I am definitely with you on that one Kelly. That is one great calendar. Maybe iStock should have a calendar contest, then print the winner and sell it in the iStock store before Christmas?

It'd be super easy to buy ... just use our earnings ... of which we will have many!

Yes, thanks Marje and Marcie (aka MBCheatham)!
I got the notifications all at once too.
For the record, both went the extra distance to lmk beforehand about usage. That does deserve just as much attention as the great email automation behind the istock scenes.

Yeah I submitted two design a long long time ago I had almost forgotten about them. So I emailed support like "what the dilio?" after that one got accepted and one got rejected. Anyways the one that got accepted showed way back there in the submission like you know the news ones come out on the first pages well mine JUST got aceepted but was like on page 12 or something... that sucked. Oh well atleast it got in.
