For the rejection, you should have gotten an e-mail notice. If you did not see the e-mail notice in your inbox, check your spam folder for it. To get details of the e-mail notice you need to go to your contributor page
On the black menu bar, click on "Uploaded file"
On the new page, below the top black menu bar click on "Rejected".
There you will see thumbnails of all your rejected files. Each one you click on will show you the details on the right side of the page.
To find the images that you should resubmit with a release, click on "Reminder" on the menu below the black menu bar. (Beside "Reminder" you will see the number of assets that are there requiring releases.
In any case I believe you got a none compliant rejection because you resubmitted the affected files without providing whatever it was that the moderator rejected it for the first time around, not necessarily model release. Therefore you need to look for what it was rejected for the first time and correct that before resubmitting.
Non-compliant - therefore:
Look at your keywords for example. There are a number of reasons...
For whatever is is worth, these images were submitted with the same title and similar keywords to Getty, and were accepted readily. Are there quibbles with the concept? Adobe initially rejected them all as non-compliant, and while I understand that the moderators have little extra time for explanation, I can find no obvious reason these were rejected, so any attempt to bring them into compliance will be a frustrating shot in the dark. At this point it doesn't seem like time well spent to pursue.
It could well be that Adobe does not like the subject matter...
None-compliant means something to be corrected/addressed except one or more of similar images were rejected for "Similar". When Adobe does not want an image "commercial appeal" or "similar" rejection is used.
Thank you for your replies. I submitted a model release that copies the adobe release language exactly, (as I have for previous model photos) and I checked it for errors. I received no notifications or reminders to edit or fix any releaase problems, they just went straight to non-compliant image status.
I thought there might be concern about copyright issues regarding the use of the word "emoji", but everything I found online suggested the copyright was based on the image (an my images do not copy the images) and not the word. I brought up Getty because in the past they have seemed more sensitive to that than Adobe about that. I don't have the exact list of keywords I submitted and since the files were rejected I have no way of checking them after (something in the future I will plan for better.)
Thank you all again for your suggestions.
If the total artwork originate with you try resubmitting one with a property release filled out as you being the owner and artist and see what happens.
I note you have 8 similar images here. Are these all that you submitted for approval? Was any of this batch rejected for "similar"? If no for the latter question, did you try my suggestion to submit with "Property Release"?
These were the only 8 I submitted. I haven't yet tried to resubmit by altering the property release. Since the only identifiable subject in the photo was the model that I photographed and then retouched, I thought the model release would be sufficient.
I appreciate your followup response.
