Interestingly after the new price announcement, I have had 3 batches and 61 photos rejected. Different themes. My acceptance rate was excellent (95%+) and some (and all) of the photos have been accepted on various other sites. Coincidence! Has this happened to others? A change in direction?

....I just had slipping through a batch of 150 without problems. So till now I cannot confirm that, but it will be interesting to observe. I could understand if they would put in place some more strict rules...

Were the three batches all 'Awaiting QC' at the same time? If so, and you had one image which was rejected, all three batches / 61 images would be rejected Like it or loathe it, that's their system.

If you had three different batches all rejected at different times, you'd be best to post on their QC thread.

One fail, all fail.

ANd they always move the failed image to the head of the list with the reason, and the rest have No Reason, because they stop looking when one fails.

It also explains why they add one million images every 2 months. They do random checks. So if you submit 1000 photos, they check a few and then pass the lot. Thats also why there is so much unedited crap stock on Alamy. If they would check every single image submitted they wouldnt be adding 15000 images per day !!
