15 rejected - 2 film noise/grain, 1 focus and 12 file transfer error, next submit all accepted, then 8 rejected - file transfer error, next all accepted
yes I think that's true but SS should be more honest about it. If they don't want a certain type of photo, they should say so, NOT reject it foir noise /focus when every other agency you submit to accepts same photo which always seems to happen to me.

Most of the agencies seem to have incompetent reviewers.... out of focus/motion blur-- nope.  Technical error-- nope.  Poor composition- nope -- from reviewer who has no clue what composition is.  Similar image-- nope one is a macro  -- totally different.  Just move on-- they do sell at agencies where accepted-- rejecting agency's loss.

Not sure. Speaking from my own, anecdotal, experience here: some of my good earning images were rejected during the first upload.
I had to upload them twice or even a third time before they were accepted. I thought those were quality-wise rather decent shots with respectable commercial value, so I persisted despite Shutterstock telling me different. In the end, I was right, and they started selling, earning me several hundreds of dollars.
