    I don't know if it's just the photos I uploaded or there is something wrong. It always says that my photo is not selected for market

    I have the same problem, pictures so not contain one of the above reasons, but are declined anyway. Not fun like that!

    My picture is just an image of a piano and can't tell whose company it belongs to. No watermarks, not a person in it, no filters or adjustments. Got declined. Hail EyeEm.

    My picture is a beautiful image that features water a ship and a scene of Disneyland..Why was it denied?...What can I do to get it in the market?

    Stephen Kirby has a strange attitude frankly. I'm perplexed as to why some things are acceptable and some not. The requirement to get model and property releases is just not practical, and here in the UK these rules are just not applicable. The idea that I run across the road armed with model releases is really ridiculous.
