I find it absurd that I have just had just had two images rejected for model release reason : ++ Please provide a meaningful shoot description on your model release. Really Istock? Come on, you accepted an image with that same model release only a few weeks ago! At least if you're going to reject something, be consistent, and stop treating non exclusive contributors like second class citizens! You really make it hard for people like me to want to upload here..rant over!

I'm exclusive and that's happened to me a couple times. It's not because you're indy.

You can always make the required adjustment and re-upload the model release. If you want to get to the botom of things you can also open a support ticket with the file number of the approved file and the file number of the rejected file. It could be that the approved file was the image that was accepted in error.

So there are two routes. You can stay mad or you can contact the appropriate department and have your situation reviewed.

Psst: to the OP, option 1 above will almost surley cause the issue to be resolved much faster.

I also just tonight had the same thing happen to me. All of my images were portraits and that was stated on the model release. I'm not getting mad I will just stop sending my images.

I agree, stocksites need to realize that once a photo is rejected they will never be hosting that particular photo in their library, but the competition will..Maybe exclusives will resubmit, who knows..

 I think the poster has a very valid complaint which concerns us all, it would be great if you could let us know what is expected in the shoot descrption field? I had some releases rejected because the country of the shoot was missing in that field.. uploading and keywording takes time, please respect that.

You are demanding that iStock conforms to your standards. That's not how it works. Professionals check what's required and make sure they comply.

All very well, but in my world a description of a location is f.eks. A beach or a park etc... Not the area the beach or park is in..If they want something specific, it should be stressed.

 It just feels like sometimes the inspectors here go out of their way to find something new they can pick on..

 No matter if we are wrong or right, the result is, that 95% (at least in my case) of the rejected photos never goes back on the site..It completely disrupts the workflow..

Thousands of people every day seem to somehow and miraculously fill out model releases correctly to the standards that iStock require. If this is something that is causing you issue, please refer to the article linked from here:

Model release FAQ

Standards for MRs are applied equally to exclusive and non exclusive contributors alike. Inspectors, being people, do make mistakes from time to time, so please do try to accept that despite everyone's best efforts, things may hit a little MR glitch occasionally. Thank you all for your understanding.

If anyone needs any specific help with MRs - anything not clear from the linked article, please do post in the Help forum and I'm sure we will be able to offer you the assistance you require.
