As a first step we recommend you to read this blog article:
As a contributor you may only upload work that is owned and/or controlled by you. For an initial review you must submit a batch of exactly 10 vectors. If at least 1 of the 10 submitted vectors are accepted, you will be notified of acceptance and can submit as many images as you wish. If less than 1 image is accepted, a waiting period is required before the next 10 images can be uploaded for review. Please keep in mind that the initial review process for images can take up to 10 business days.
All content is reviewed by professionals with significant experience in the creative sector who review on an individual basis with guidelines set by illustraStock. Our reviewer team’s philosophy is based on a number of variables with customer satisfaction as a principle theme. As such it is possible that they have different views about what is acceptable content. Our reviewers inspect all images at 100% for quality guidelines. We recommend that you do the same with your content prior to submission in order to avoid unnecessary rejections.
How to submit vectors:
A vector submission requires you to upload two files at the same time: An .ai file and a small .png version with the exact same file name. We accept .ai files that are compatible with Adobe Illustrator 10 (cs5). Is not mandatory to create the illustrations from our templates, but for your best you must use it. The PNG version should be 300 dpi.
We have published a complete set of instructions for uploading vectors online with visuals included here
If your images are accepted they will be posted online for our subscribers to download. It may take several days to be fully processed on our site, and for keyword searches to function in all categories and settings. If you cannot locate certain images, please email us the image ID number of each missing image.
Due to heightened security concerns, we require that all contributors verify their address and identity by uploading an official government-issued photo identification for review as part of the registration process.
