Sigh indeed  :o

Agencies really are populated by some of the most idiotic people  ::)

I guess it's the keywords that triggered it, just like on Eyeem.

I got that same "Oh no, you can't show that!" reaction from Adobe to a lovely video of two ducks mating in a marsh.

But Pond5 took it without question.

Go figure.

Well, I had an image rejected on iStock for being sexist even after asking for a higher tier evaluation.

The image only showed a man shouting at a crying woman to portray domestic violence. Like that never happens... What I'm sure is that the review team is imposing an ideological agenda to the content.

As for the dragonflies I also believe it was the keywords, and the "A" not so "I" checking the image cannot differentiate dragonflies from people.

try uploading a picture of a 'pinkish' ring around a whitish planet :) you might get a 'mature content' or 'nudity' rating for that too! ;)

Assholes - or maybe gluteal cleft, that's what the email said

SS rejected an image even after complaint (I clearly had too much time on my hands) not of a model but of a sculpture commemorating a poet which has stood in a park in central Helsinki since 1932. 

Pay reviewers peanuts .....

I too have had similar photos rejected at iStock. My take on it was that they hired a female CEO some years back and she decided that they no longer wanted photos that did not seem to empower women. The thing is though, I also have similar photos accepted previously before their policy change and I see them sell from time to time.
