I once tried to upload some editorial content of a big balloon festival in my city.

DT required a reference to the event, which should have been a URL link to a news agency web site covering the story.
Since I provided a link of a local TV station it wasn't considered "editorial-worthy". I mean not everything is covered on cnn.com.

For a while now I see a lot of editorial images where I wonder what the event could have been as it just shows downtown shots etc. It almost looks like that when people are too lazy to clone out logos of fast food restaurants they just upload it as editorial - but how do they get around the news-reference?

What are the current requirements for editorial images at DT? Anyone?

Thanks in advance.

depends on the reviewer - some seem to think editorial is ONLY for news, others realize it's a uch broader category.   SS has recently gotten much pickier about the format of your editorial description, but accepts more editorials than DT - BigStock is by far the worst in terms of having competent editorial reviewers.

That's interesting.

Whatever I threw at BigStock, they accepted.

I wouldn't bother with editorial micro.  Sales usually are low and not worth the effort.  If you consider editorial images you should try any traditional agency, the relatively low number of sales per pic (if any) will pay up more, way more.
