Hello every body.

I have uploaded my initial 10 images which 5 were okay and 5 rejected (One had model release problem)
They gave me two weeks wait time.
Is any thing changed with wait time ?
I remember it was 30 days not two weeks.

Thank you.

Maybe it's because your model released pics are okay and they just need the release? Hopefully it's not a mistake and you can take advantage of that time frame.

Yeah we have read about the two week wait from a submitter on SS who said they too have to only wait for two weeks to submit again.

We have no idea yet as the guidelines still say 30 days?

So we are lost and waiting for an answer??????

Hello All,

The wait time is two weeks.  This is something that we have control over and we have a goal to reduce wait times while ensuring quality reviews and submissions.  There may be some outdated text in the system, which we generally clean up as we go along.  If you've found a specific reference, feel free to private message me and I'll ask the team to take care of it.

Thanks!

Hi Scott, would it be safe to assume that the two week wait time may increase in future, the same as all other review times?

Its not the same, the two weeks is the cooling down period after an initial rejection to join Shutterstock. Its not a review time of images.

Yes, and I was asking if it may increase in future, the same as review times may increase in future

Hello,

Historically, the goal of the resubmission period was to give new contributors -- many of whom are completely new to stock photography -- a chance to go and learn more about quality guidelines, create new work, consult with experienced contributors in the forums, etc..., and --- to a limited extent --- reduce the spam of unsuccessful applications.   We try not to speculate on the future, but the goal is to maintain our quality standards while working hard to make sure that contributors have a successful first submission, and that there's a good educational path for them to have a quick and successful second submission if they didn't pass on the first try. 

Our goal is to reduce that resubmission time period, rather than increase it, and to build an environment where people are more successful on the first try.

Best,

Some of us do understand, others of us are just ignorant and oblivious to others.
