Preparing your images for our check

Important
Check stages

Every artwork goes through two stages – our editorial and technical check. If an artwork isn’t approved during the editorial i.e. visual check, it doesn’t get to the next stage.

Please check your statuses in the uploading system as they may show the reasons for your item not having been approved as well as some recommendations how to correct the issues.
