I am new to this community. I would appreciate if someone would take a look at my watercolor submission and advise me on the possible reasons why it is rejected as "non-compliant image". Thank you!

If that's what you submitted, it's too small.
Since it's an illustrated work presumably created by you, did you sign an IP release?
Read submission guidelines:
Thank you for your quick response. No, I didn't sign an IP release (That might be the problem?). The original piece is 7" x 3 1/2". I took a picture and uploaded it (see attached below). How can I resubmit it? It is now in the rejected folder.
A photo of any made "thing", including a painting, needs an IP release from the IP owner of the thing. It is normal and usual to make an IP release for things you made yourself, where you sign both times, so if you take a photo of your own painting, you need an IP release. Here is where it gets confusing
- the photographer signs as "artist"
- the painter (we think of them as the artist, but not in this case) signs as "owner"
This case is described, with special rules, in the info on IP releases.
Thank you! That helps a lot.
Resubmit again (with the property release) and update here. You just need to re-initiate the procedure. Upload->title/keywords->assign property release->go. The rejected folder only holds a preview of what got rejected during your stock provider's career. I love you painting!
