Now I know I'm not the sharpest tool in the box, but I even though I'm new, I still try to abide by the rules. 

Submitted this as an editorial, with the description "Southwold, Norfolk. England - November 4, 2018:  The Victorian lighthouse, white painted with it's beacon, pictured against an Autumn sky". Put it in two categories Buildings/landmarks and Objects. 

Sat back and waited for it to be added to the port.

All I got was this rejection " Press Credentials: This image was taken at an event requiring press credentials. Please send your press credentials to credentials@shutterstock.com prior to submitting this content"

 Now, the lighthouse opened in the town in 1890, and the lamp has a range of 44km. Not sure that the white light flashing every 10 seconds constitutes an event, but someone obviously does!

Well the arrow on the lighthouse is pointing at something...must have been the event that required the credentials.

Sorry, couldn't help myself

I just got a lame rejection myself and wrote a note to the team

"Our review team is a global network of professionals with significant experience in the creative sector. But besides being artists themselves, our reviewers are also thoroughly trained on Shutterstock technical and metadata standards as well as compliance policies."

Stephen, I did Cuba Last year, Came home with what I considered good work of the Dark side Which I prefer to shoot. I tried 4 times as editorial. I listed to alex twice and still no go. then I listened to 2 Other "Expert" editorial folks and no go. I gave up and gave to a site that knows whats up. and sold Instantly. No More ED for me and SS.

The hive mind is taking over.

After all, Orang Utan means "man of the forest".

Haha, your comment made me giggle ?

 

Obviously there was a mistake just resubmit and wait again. I am sure, it will get through or at least get another rejection. 

 

But you can also try to submit it as commercial. Just be sure to mention it is old and from 1890, if that is the case. You will widen your buyer audience with it. 

 

Good luck! 

Pleased that I made you smile. I never take myself too seriously, and when I do post.. it’s generally with my tongue firmly in my cheek! 

Interesting port by the way. Steve.

Thanks for commenting, I prefer levity. My aim for 2019 is to achieve every variation of rejection within SS for Photography. Once I’ve achieved this... I may move on ... to vectors. Steve.

Yeah, I think I had that once... but a course of penicillin sorted it! 

Good luck in the football, as a Brit, it looks like you’ll have to overturn a winning streak. Steve

I’m sure that when the Orangutan calmed down... it would have signed the release! Steve ?

I just had to write an essay for AS explaining that my model couldn't sign a release as he is a 3d mesh with a procedural texture.

Usually it's only SS and iS I have to explain this to..... getting worse <sigh>.

Just smile and carry on regardless. Steve.
