I've been uploading to Pond5 for 9 years.  My website and YouTube videos link to Pond5 collections.  I had assumed the liked how many links I have sending people to my clips on Pond5 since they've accepted 100% of my submitted clips for years now... but the last few weeks my clips are getting rejected or returned. I'm not doing anything different.  Is anyone else experiencing something similar or did I just recently get a strict curator??

Any rejection reasons?

I've had a few previously approved and online clips go into the "rejected" tab recently.  I suspect these particular clips were no longer compliant with the new rules from the powers-that-be (i.e., SS).

No reason was given.

Yeah, I've had a few of those rejections lately "contextual metadata..."
Just write to the Pond5 team and they will help you with the issue.

Cheers

Basically my video acceptance is 100%. Sometimes you come across slightly inadequate curators, but letters in support of the site return the video to the accepted section. This happens very rarely.

Just had a bunch returned today for contextual metadata and finally sent an email to support.  I think I just got a weird curator.  I read over my titles and descriptions and they perfectly describe the clips.  I've had 100% acceptance rate for years... hopefully this gets figured out.

They rejected an animation of a crying emoji (100% my own design), but I thought the email was quite funny because under the rejection message there was the picture of the crying emoji which looked like it was a reaction to the rejection.

I've been getting rejections for some of my pics also. Mainly editorial ones. These are ones I've taken of commercial establishments like Levis, Gap, Cracker Barrel and Skechers. Rejected because I didn't give the date and place where they were taken. Previously whenever I submitted such pics like these I never did have to give such info. I thought it was only required for newsworthy items. Or pics of celebrities.
