I have been submitting for years - I make a fair amount of money and I know what to expect.  But this has been the most puzzling rejection simply because its for editorial at SS and, at first, they just reject for no reason.

It said nothing there.  Then I re-upped the photos thinking that there was a mistake and rejected by accident and they were rejected again saying to e-mail someone at SS.

So I re-upped again thinking its some reviewer who doesn't have a clue.  Get rejections for MODEL RELEASES on editorial?  Thats a new one (I also checked the editorial boxes)

So I've finally e-mailed and asked what is going on.  Reason I'm confused is that they released their red carpet for editiorial stuff and even though I didn't use that process I have photos for them - yet they get rejected.

By the way, DT has seen no problem with my photos - so i'm not that crazy

Anyone else experiencing this?

Don't look for logic from SS, or for that matter a reply to your email.
They could care less about their contributors.
Never forget, the better you do, the worse they do!

no offence to you, but i'm hoping you are wrong just so that things seem more positive than negative :)

Yes, I just recently had a photo rejected on the grounds they their editorial policy had changed.  Go to the forum (General Discussion), there is a posting about this with additional info on the new rules for submitting editorial images.  They want-- Who, What, Where & When and other info.  They have not updated their Submitter Guidelines to reflect this yet.

ichiro, the only time i've heard my colleagues being rejected on editorials
was due to having too many unrelated keywords, or inserting a website .
to some it is considered spamming, even though it is editorial.

i know DT likes you to include as many keywords as needed, and even a reference URL . but other sites do not.
hope this helps

I got a very quick response, which is nice.

Apparently my captions were off and there was some newly implemented caption requirement.

At least I know it wasn't the photographs.
