It’s kinda frustrating for me to work on a project for days only to get hard rejected by Envato ‘curators’. But I get it - sometimes the work we do is just not fitting with Envato’s ‘quality’ and ‘standards’ (or whatever). But… what is more frustrating is the fact that we don’t get any feedback for why our projects got rejected.
For example, I recently uploaded an ae project and got hard rejected (without ‘curator’ feedback, of course). I started questioning my talent, aesthetics, my sanity… only to find out that I stupidly forgot to link external footage files in my project. How did I found out about my mistake? Well, since I got rejected by Envato I uploaded the project to another major stock site. They were kind enough to inform me that files in my project are not linked properly and asked me to send the project again after I fix the problem.
They wrote me ONE simple sentence which put hope back in my life. And I kept my sanity.
