The significance of the Illustration categories

posted on 29th of july, 2008
As a daily reviewer I have come across, and recently even more so, tons of illustrations with misplaced or even unassigned Illustration categories. I'd like to share a few words about the significance of those categories and why it is necessary to assign them correctly.

It is required that contributors assign one of the three illustration categories to their submissions that are not photographs.

I have experienced the rejection of the image by the reason not select ILLUSTRATION category. But the image was a photograph, not 3D render, and the fact was pointed by kewords "photo" and "photgraph".

Since I prefer to not select false category, what is the best solution for the issue?

Hi, thanx for an article.
But I think in some case people may not choose a one of illustration categories, I mean when image done in 3d graphic software and looks exactly as a photo, and its hard to differ it from real photographs.
Because some buyers dont know that 3d is can be as real as a photo and uncheck the box illustrations, its not fair, I think.
