I've been only at stock photography for a month or so although I've been a photographer for 20 years. Recently submitted some family images to istock of a mother, father and two kids in their back yard. I used Shutterstock model releases. Submitted the images and now finally they've been reviewed and all rejected.  Reason stated: No model release.

I clearly uploaded releases for all four individuals. What's the deal? Do they only accept getty releases or do I just need to resubmitted the releases for these because they were overlooked?

Thanks

Never mind folks. I see on their site now they only allow Getty releases. Kinda ridiculous.

Not true. They allow generic releases. I use Yuri Arcurs's generic version and I upload to iStock. Never ever had a problem.

Right you just can't have other agency data on the release. A generic release will work and so will a SS release if you take off the parts about Shutterstock and the New York address and all that. Yes it's legal to alter the boilerplate of a release, if the model and legal data is not changed. A contract is a contract.

Aha! Got it. Thank you.
