Put your IPTC data to Photoshop preview file. It works for most of the agencies.

I don't mean to hijack this thread, but could you please give a brief explanation on how to do this? Can you do it from Illustrator, or do you need some other software ? Photoshop ?
iSyndica used to mistakenly add IPTC data to the EPS file which resulted in rejections at some agencies and a personal note from Crestock that most of my portfolio had been removed due to corrupted files (that weren't discovered initially when the images were reviewed). Since then I haven't dared exploring IPTC options, so I keep all my keywords, descriptions and titles in seperate .txt documents which makes it a pain uploading to new agencies.

Most of agencies take EPS10 that include IPTC data and I had never problems with it (except past glitches at SS - when saved in CS5), so I'm not 100% sure, if data are taken from illustrator file or from preview .
In fact - the only agency where I send eps8 is VectorStock - for them I export illustration directly from illustrator as JPG and IPTC data are kept. Then just crop preview in Photoshop to the required size and send it as they want with eps8 and it works. If you use "save for web" in Photoshop, don't forget to include Metadata (as default they are not included). But I have no experience with Crestock.
