This is where you will see your submissions that are In Review, Approved or Rejected.
Under the image you will see what Brief name that the image was submitted to, and a note on why it was rejected.
Reasons for rejection, and what they mean:
Copyright - the content in the image contains one or more intellectual property issues
Model release - Model release is required and is either missing, incomplete or incorrectly filled in - there may be times we leave a note with details, hover over the reason with your mouse to see the note
Property release - Property release is required and is either missing, incomplete to incorrectly filled in - there may be times we leave a note with details, hover over the reason with your mouse to see the note
Quality - Covers one or more of the following:
doesn't meet our quality standards
submitting too "stocky type images"
poor subject matter
It is not possible for our team to give individual feedback for Quality. Keep in mind we have a higher level of quality standard for Unsplash+ than we do in the open library so we have to be extra picky with what we accept.
Please see our premium quality explanation guide for more information.
Similar - Image is too similar to other images accepted from submission. Please see our curation guide for more information.
Other - Covers one or more of the following:
image is / was on free Unsplash
image is / was on other stock image platforms
subject matter does not fit the brief it was submitted to
subject matter is not needed for the Unsplash+ library
When images are rejected for 'other' it often means that there's nothing wrong with the quality or images themselves, but simply they aren't needed for the collection.
