Hello people,

I create high quality photographs of cars Audi brand. Example. Audi TT. When I want to upload images on Adobe Stock for sale they are always rejected.

I wonder why now, because if you search on Adobe Stock for example Audi TT you can find very well pictures of Audi TT.

You would need a property release from Audi to use their brand name commercially.  

 

I wonder if what you are seeing is editorial use only content?  That content doesn't need a release, but can only be used for editorial purposes like newspapers, news and magazine articles, blog posts, etc.  It may not be used for commercial advertising.

 

You must have more than 100 sales to be able to submit editorial content on Adobe.

Major companies like Audi are fiercely protective of their design patents and brand.  You can't submit such photos to Stock without a signed release from the car maker which they are highly unlikely to give you. 

 

BTW, Adobe gets their brand name Editorial Photos from trusted partners and agencies only.
