Hi Everyone,

In addition to the Creative Cloud bonus program announced earlier today, I have more good news to share. We have started accepting Illustrative Editorial submissions from individual contributors. As we are just getting started, we have limited this access to contributors ranked at Emerald or above (25,000 downloads or more). We will expand this access in the future. For now, if you are not ranked at Emerald or above though you feel you have a strong Illustrative Editorial collection already established you may write to us for consideration via the contact us link at the bottom of the contributor portal. Be sure to include a link to your existing work. 

To understand what Illustrative Editorial is and to learn about our guidelines, please review the information here: https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/illustrative-editorial-content.html

I'm looking forward to seeing what you submit!

Matt, did they quit tracking rank at the cutover from Fotolia? I have over 32K downloads, but my rank is Gold.

No, we are still tracking sales towards rank. I've seen one case in which the total downloads exceeded 25K though a batch were free downloads from Fotolia days that didn't apply towards rank. Shoot us an email via the contact us link at the bottom of the contributor portal and I'll take a look to see if that's the same for you.

Kind regards,

Mat Hayward

Thanks. Is there a way to know how many downloads we still have to have to reach next level or the rank system died and we got frozen where we were? I have an idea this was discussed in the past but cannot remember.
I googled it, not sure if the info is on the adobe image manager.  you need 25K downloads to be emerald, and that's quite a challenge nowadays. your total DLs are on your dashboard.   I am a long way off. :/

Rank details can be found here but yes, 25,000 is the number to hit for Emerald: https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/royalty-details.html

If you have an existing collection of Illustrative Editorial online, send us an email via the contact us link at the bottom of the portal and we may be able to accept your work.

Kind regards,

Mat Hayward

Wow, this is great news!

I'm just below Emerald with Gold rank and a large editorial port. I've written to contributor support with a link to my work to see if I can be included early.

Great news, Thanks Mat

Stu :-)

Great news

hah, just kidding @Mat, no offense.

I got greater news, already uploaded and listed!

:P

Jokes aside, that is a nice move from Adobe side, as far as I remember
it is not that long that Mat & Dennis run a thread / poll to see our
opinions and intentions on editorial submittions :)

I am miles away from the 25.000 downloads but I have still sent the email with my small illustrative port.
What Adobe Stock could do, aside illustrative editorials, is accept a limited per month number of editorial photos and videos until they shape an initial opinion. This could also discourage all contributors from uploading every single asset we have, since we would have to think twice about our content to send. It is not difficult to understand both sides lose earnings from not being able to do that. Such a move could make Adobe lower the risk they are probably trying to weigh prior to enabling editorial uploads.

This is a great beginning! Any feel for when we can expect it will be opened up to photos with non-released people in them?
