My approval rate at Shutterstock used to be 99% - 100%, but since july they've dropped to around 30%!!!

Keywords and "Too many in site" are the most frequent rejections. Anyone else feeling that? Don't know if they've changed their policy or if the reviewers are either more picky or less experienced...

i got some simple vectors that are rejected for the same reasons, at the same time the jpg version are accepted. I think jpg and vector are reviewed by different reviewer. Vector format is always selling better than jpg format, and yet the vector are rejected.

Well, from looking at your latest at Dreamstime, I would say they are a bit too simplistic. Do more like this and I would say you will get more accepted:

Nope still at 100% acceptance on illustrations.
I'm glad they're tightening up a bit, for years they've accepted anything vector thrown at them. A lot of it only gets downloaded because it's new, as opposed to different, and the library must be getting clogged up with the same old silhouettes ,simple icons and backgrounds.
