This is one I haven't seen before and I'm at a loss to see what is wrong. I've submitted about 300 images from South America already and most have been accepted. This latest batch of 12 images from Buenos Aires were all rejected with

Inaccurate Location: The selected location does not accurately describe this content, is not consistent with the metadata, or contains non-Latin characters (e.g., Cyrillic, Thai script, etc).

The camera has no GPS or location information (Sony A7R5) and I didn't add a location in Lightroom - that section of the metadata is blank and this is what I entered (an image similar to the ones rejected that I submitted just now)

Anyone come across this rejection before and what is the solution?

Steve

A friend gave me the answer (I think!). I use Stock Submitter and in the "Other Parameters/Other Metadata" section is a setting for location. I never really use that, and it is set as a default to United States.

In future I need to either set that to the country in question or set it to Unspecified. Looks like SS has started comparing this setting in the metadata with the keywords or description.
