I just uploaded a bunch of different illustrations I've done.
But they all got rejected.
Two christmas/yule card and a cute card of a balloon seller and two kids got rejected because the needed some kind of contract. I don't get it - I made them! I don't need anybodys accept to make them public accessible, do I????
These three got rejected on these issues:
The one with the reader and the one with the traveller on technical issues
The one of Queen Elizabeth II on immateriel issues
Hope you can help me out
When you say "some kind of contract" do you mean an IP release? Because you will need one. Adobe have no legal way to know that you are the artist - you could be photographing someone else's art and trying to sell it illegally! You would not want someone who has a copy of your drawings to be allowed to sell it on Stock...! So you need to make a legally binding release, as the artist. This is covered in Adobe's guidelines in detail.
Tip: on the form the "artist" is the photographer and the "owner" is the person making the design.
I like your work, by the way, please just take care of the paperwork...
The first 2 are black and white and Adobe stock normally does not accept black and white, even that in your case that is nonsense. Unfortunately, there is no appeal… So for the moment being, you will need to keep those beside and concentrate on the colour ones. As soon as you have got the colour ones through, I would recommend submitting the B&W also the same way again.
The queen will never pass, as the queen is a real person which may be protected. I think you should offer that one to the newspapers directly. They could be interested… 🙂 If, however, you put “old lady” in the description, without naming “The Queen”, you may submit the picture again. But the big incentive to use that picture is gone…
As for the three other pictures, submit them again with a property release stating that you are the creator of that artwork as @Test Screen Name suggests and let see if that passes. If not, update this again with the exact refusal reason (even in your language: if you copy-paste the text, we can translate it and guess the refusal reason).
Thank you so much for making that clear me 🙂
Hi @Jon Skræntskov,
Whatever you submit to Adobe Stock must be fit for commercial use. That's what Adobe customers expect. Cartoons, drawings and other original artwork must be accompanied by a signed property release form by you the artist/owner.
