I have been getting rejections lately on my vectors I created from my own sketches. I provide proof of my sketches and they still say they need model releases or something like that. It's like they don't believe i can sketch that off my head. I majored in illustration and have taken hundreds of hours on life drawing which is to study the anatomy. Who can I contact? It's like they think they have a bunch of people that cant draw submitting there or something. Why isn't sketch enough proof?

When I was with them they told me that their reviewers are not contactable. They live in apartments, dark dungeons, and have a high turnover...something along those lines. Not once have I ever gotten any constructive feedback, just to "keep uploading and shoot better pictures".  Really a shabby organization.

You mean Adobe? Really? Are PS and LR also part of this "shabbyness"?

When I was with them, yes. Today, their management that is from the old school is useless and proven to be so. Adobe, who is parenting FT might be a different story to a degree. But Adobe has its idiotic model, too, with shoving CC down our throats, so a little, yes.I can go on and on about Adobe because it isn't ALL about the product itself.

You can't contact reviewers at any agency but you can send an email to support, contact link is at the bottom of the page.
Explain your case and ask for advise. You will receive an answer as long as you are polite (forget forum manners).

Or you can write a message on a photo and send it for review.

How To Contact Fotolia Reviewing Team:

You must travel to a small town in the north of France called Vismes. On the outskirts of town, nestled within a small stand of trees, you will find a cabin. The door to the cabin is hidden and can only be seen at sunset. When the failing light illuminates the edges of the door, knock three times. The door will open. How? No one knows since no one has ever been seen inside the cabin to answer the knock. It just opens.

Inside you will find an elevator. Don't worry about which button to push, there is only one. It will take you down. It will seem like you are going forever but just when you think it can't possibly go any deeper, you will arrive at your destination.

When the elevator opens you will find yourself in a tunnel leading to three different rooms. Enter the centre room. DO NOT under any circumstance set foot in the other rooms. Inside the centre room you will find a series of puzzles you must solve. Don't ask how, they are always different. If you manage to solve the puzzles a wall will slide open and a small desk, complete with writing paper and a pen, will present itself. Write your message to the reviewers there. You must phrase every sentence in the form of a question and sign it with the name "Albion",  it's just how they've always done it.

Once you have completed your message, seal the letter in an envelope, oh by the way you must bring an envelope with you, and place it into the slot on the opposite side of the room. Immediately exit and do no look back. The elevator will be waiting for you and if you have done everything correctly you will know by the fact that no one will ever respond.

LOL! Thanks for the laugh. I needed it today.  :)

Basically, I think, you just don't. Sorry. There are other sites where to submit your stuff that will be more willing to listen.

  Why isn't sketch enough proof?

@VB,

If you are posting a sketch of your vector in the model/property release section that is automatically going to trigger a release issue notification every time. The only thing you can post in there is an actual property or model release. More than likely you will be OK simply leaving that area blank for vectors.

If you are still being prompted to submit a release after posting the image with the release section blank be sure to print and sign your name as both the contributing artist and the property owner (you will also need a witness printed name and signature) and be sure that your name on the release matches your name in your account profile.

You can print our releases from here if necessary: https://us.fotolia.com/Contributor/MyReleases?download_release_templates=1

Feel free to send me an email directly if you continue to have concerns with this issue. My email address is [email protected]

Hey Matt,

This post of mine is pretty old and I  resolved this issue a long time ago. I just paste my sketches right into the model releases and sign and it gets approved almost all the time these days. But thanks again for your help.

Hey Mat, the title of the thread is "How do you contact Fotolia reviewing team?", not "how do you send/attach a release"

And I add a question: "Why Fotolia hides and doesn't want to defend or explain his positions/decisions?".
I find this not very fair (to not use other words).
