Shutterstock has updated the submission guidelines, and photographic images are now prohibited. Over the next few months, we will begin to examine our collection and will remove any image that appears to be a photograph. Any photo-realistic vectors will also be removed, in order to err on the side of caution.
Thank you for your understanding as we implement this new policy for everyone's benefit. We look forward to your future submissions, and we appreciate your talent and creativity -- especially simple line drawings of blue cats.
