I’m using the attached minor release and Adobe has no problems in accepting it for an adult model. As soon as I use the release for minors, they are rejecting it.
I clearly states that the model is a minor and in this case that her mother singed it – address, phone number and e-mail included (but blocked from view).
I do not understand what is wrong on the release?

Hi @WernerJB, 1. You should be using this model release form.  https://contributor.stock.adobe.com/static/releases/model/Releases-en.293128c8f1ff86abb874b5f73b8c5094.pdf 2. It must be witnessed by a 4th party  -- someone other than you, the model or the model's parent/guardian.

Adobe's realease is not an option when you are on location. And I need also releases for other agencys with no branding.

So the adult release does not need a witness but the minor release?

Yes, extra measures of protection are necessary when it comes to photographing children. A great thing, I hope you will agree!

============

@WernerJB,

This is NOT about branding, nor unique to Adobe or child models.  Getty Images and other stock houses use similar release forms.  And they all provide space for witness' signature.  And some also require the model's ID card as proof of legal age.

https://contributors.gettyimages.com/article_public.aspx?article_id=3069

 

Additionally, Getty Images have "special forms" for images shot inside France and Brazil, no doubt because of special regional laws there. 

 

So chalk this up to experience.  You learned something new and now you know what you didn't know before.  🙂

 

Best of luck with your next submission.
