I know that 123RF are not the quickest on turn around for their review times but this month none of my uploads have been reviewed yet and I still have a couple of later submissions from last month pending too.

Anyone else noticed a slow down as this is much longer than the usual review time I experience?

When I asked them how long it takes for the review last week, they said 2-3 days. It's been 4 days now and nothing. I hoped they'd stick to their time frame and I could be uploading a new batch today. But it looks like that won't happen...

Mine took 2 weeks. Yes, and prepare yourself for mass rejections. It is a known strategy of 123RF to clear the cue whenever they fall behind in their review of submissions.

I have been submitting there for about 5 months and have about 400 images on line and have noticed that the review times do ebb and flow but am sitting at about 3 weeks now since anything was reviewed and was just wondering if anyone else was having the same issue.

They are proving a reasonable place to upload to with the submission process being really simple and to date fair reviews and sales that put them inside the top 3 for me.

all my pics have been approved yesterday. they were uploaded on 3 different dates in june, so the oldest ones were pending for 2 weeks.

another note - if they review an image, but find something missing [keywords, etc], it just stays in pending and you don't get any notification;  so you need tp look at the old pending images to check.  i had some in for weeks befoere i asked and was then told they were incomplete

I submitted 4 images on June 4th and they were accepted a couple of days ago. I've always found them to take 7 - 14 days for review.

Just had two batches approved today that were loaded on June 4 and June 9.  Since nothing showed as approved yesterday and both batches showed as approved today, I assume they were reviewed together.

It's more of a hassle when you have a whole portfolio to upload.

 I'm doing batches of 40 or so to ensure that I don't upload content they don't want (and to keep my workflow straight). Once one batch is approved I upload another. However with a week between batches, it's going to be as slow as Dreamstime to get a porfolio uploaded.

Once I've had a few batches approved and feel more confident of what they will and won't reject, I might overlap things without waiting.

yes I understand.. but I had just one or two times "bad" reviews.. overall they approve nicely.. you can upload more for sure without being afraid

At least 123rf's reviews were always right.

How can I upload other works if I'm not sure if my images are only waiting the review or have been forgotten  >:(
I think that is better delete everything and put all my work on Canstock where the reviewers are very fast (I'm angry , 13 days are a too long time!)

p.s. My nick there is Shamain, I prefer that my works are refused but don't wait 13 days.

Hey guys,

Sorry for the image approval delay lately as we're experiencing a massive increase in submissions.

Our reviewers are working as fast as they can to approve your images.

Therefore, please be patient and bear with us.

Thanks for your understanding.

Notes:


Thank you for the response. I wish more agencies posted openly to questions in msg.
Our reviewers do not practice mass rejection solely to reduce the submissions queue. Every image is rejected for a reason.


Many thanks,
Anglee

Wow , that's a serious threat . I'm sure now they'll assign a special reviewer for you only . The perspective of losing you highly precious work to Canstock is just unbearable

Be careful what you wish for. It's not that uncommon and you can't compare agencies review times as apples to apples.  Just send in a request on the site and they will get back to you.  Be patient.

My last climb had taken almost two weeks to be reviewed. It is not normal, it is always reviewed in a few days. So do not worry.

Ellerslie, 123RF acceptance is high, and much better sales. At least my experience having the same portfolio.

Hi Tempus, I know that 123Rf is a very good site and I want to build my portfolio there. So you tell me that in other periods they are faster? I don't want be boring and write them an e-mail when I submit some images so I prefer wait until it's a better period for them because really, after 10 days, I don't know if it's a normal time or if my images are forgotten (bacause one of my friend tells me that sometimes they forget to do the review, so I'm worried...and nervous...and I don't like to be in this way  :-\ it's not my personality). Now I wait a week for another upload but, how can I know if it's a good period or not? ??? I'll try with fingers cross  :)
