Hi,

Can you all give me an idea of what is "noncompliant" about this type of image, categorized as an illustration because it is a digitally manipulated photo, with the title "Abstracted landscape illustration featuring a road winding through green hills."

Thanks in advance for your insight.

Did you include a property release? All illustrations must have one signed by the illustrator.

Personally, I think the borders may be a problem.  Also I would expect an illustration to be a high quality vector graphic (AI or SVG format) instead of JPG.  See link below for more on vector submission guidelines. It's a little different than photographs.

Thank you, Nancy. I appreciate your response. 

I categorized this as an illustration because it began as a photo but was digitally manipulated into an abstract. That's why it is still a .jpg.

Do you have more thoughts on this?

Nancy for the win. That gray border is a deal breaker and will result in a non-compliant rejection every time. It is however, perfectly acceptable to submit illustrations in jpg format (as long as you haven't also submitted the same image in vector format separately).

Mat, I have a follow-up question.

You say, "It is however, perfectly acceptable tosubmit illustrations in jpg format (as long as you haven't also submitted the same image in vector format separately)."

What do I do in the situations where I have a .jpg version of an illustration as well as the .svg vector file? 

What if I have submitted .jpgs and had them accepted, and then want to add the .svg version later?

Thanks for your help.
