The project was rejected, can you help me understand why?

Dear colleagues, I ask you to give your opinion. The project was rejected.

Thank you for taking the time to submit your item. Unfortunately this item does not meet our quality requirements and cannot be accepted at this time.

We receive a lot of slideshow animations, and therefore we’re very strict when reviewing these kinds of projects. Because there is so much competition in this genre, we only accept projects that we feel provide exceptional design quality and execution. Unfortunately, this project does not offer much new, nor provide an outstanding visual quality that would over-perform those projects we already have.

I would be very grateful to hear your thoughts on this matter.

They already told you, the project isnt unique enough and the market is full of these kind of slideshow templates.
Also I find the animation too repetative, basically every scene is appearing with the same animation style.
Try to create something with different animations to have diversity.

There is a certain category of projects where there is no need to create too much variety in animation and uniqueness. For example, a project by another author in a similar style, it has been moderated and is selling pretty well!

Can I get your opinion for what reason it was moderated?

Maybe there are some other nuances that I may have missed …?

Well, some authors get “lucky” and can submit the “un-unique” stuff and get approved :smiley:

But in reality that author’s project seems more dynamic, it also has a bit more trendy text animations, and lastly it is resizable and comes in 4K resolution. All of these things must be a plus I suppose. Also don’t forget that it was approved in February of 2020. 1 year and 7 months have passed since then, and what worked then as maybe a bare minimum project, probably won’t work now cause the market is constantly evolving with trends, market saturation etc.

But still, overall you will have much more chances of getting approved by creating unique, diverse, and “big value” projects, rather than threading on the line of the bare minimum to get maybe accepted if you get lucky. This time you didn’t…

Yes, I understand you, and I do not seek to rely on “luck” when creating projects …

I don’t quite understand the algorithms and principles by which the reviewers follow when making a decision … I deliberately did not complicate the project with additional animations, uniqueness.

I do not think that the author of the project that I gave in the example was simply “lucky” … His project has a certain commercial appeal, it is selling well!

Thank you for your help in finding the answer to my questions! :+1:

For what it’s worth, I think your execution is quite good. There are no technical mistakes or bad design. This is simply a case of “too saturated category” on market. If you submit a file in a category that is saturated, and do not have anything that separates you from the other items, there is always a risk involved.

so, I can see you know what you are doing, it’s better to put that talent in something this market hasn’t enough of :slight_smile:


Ok, your opinion seemed very interesting to me! Thanks.

One of my goals is to learn how to do a variety of works, both creative and ordinary, and to understand the needs of the market, as well as the criteria by which certain projects are approved or not. I look at the work of many authors, analyze and try to understand the principles of creating such projects. I do diverse projects in different styles, etc. Therefore, I decided to take apart one of my recent rejected projects.
