Satisfactory Balance!

posted on 8th of april, 2010

Hello everybody!

I'm happy for my achievement on the assignments, even with the small portfolio I have...

My first assignment participation was the e-commerce: Uploaded 2 accepted 1... 50% AR.

Second Assignment Family elders and seniors: Uploaded & accepted 1... 100% AR.

Third assignment Show us your best stock: Uploaded & accepted 1... 100% AR.

Fourth assignment participation is the latest Spirituality & Religion: Uploaded 3 accepted 2... 66% AR.

The rejected one is pending for normal RF so I hope it will see the light as well!

Thanks DT for all the great work & thanks to all my friends for the precious support!

I'm proud to make part of this community!

Congrats! Just having images accepted in assignments is an awesome accomplishment in itself already--and you have a few. I've tried a couple of times, but... well...

Congrats on the various entries - your current two are really great!
Posted by Rosedarc on April 08, 2010
Great job on this assignment Maen, different and original!
I tried but didn't get in this time, it was quite difficult and required a lot of creativity and skills. Always a great exercise despite the frustrations it creates.
Posted by Mani33 on April 08, 2010
Thanks Mat! I don't know if I'm favored or not! But I don't think it's a matter of favored... I got rejections for too simplistic also!
Yes get over it but never say never, keep trying! :)

Gabriel just being there is a great success indeed regardless winning or not! Yes it's a great help for portfolio exposure! Good luck for you my friend, you did awesome work :)

Congratulations Maen for your achievement!I participated also in few Assignments ,i never won a place but i did win because of portfolio exposure and some of my Assignment files sold pretty well:)It is a great feeling to have at least a file approved in Assignment and you do a good work.I wish you good luck in the current Assignment and i am proud also to make part of this community and have friends like you:)

Congrats Mani. It's a wonderful feeling to be favored by Dreamstime.
I must admit I don't feel as special to Dreamstime as the two times I tried the Assignments, (1) kitchen (2) spiritual ..
I received a very rapid rejection for my work being "too simplistic".
So I think I will just fall back and lick my wounds and forget about Assignments, lol.
Good luck to you and all those that the Assignment editors find worthy of their accolade.

Thanks Enrique :)
Kelley that's how we usually start when we hear about a new assignment! Moaning about an idea :))
But tell you what, start scratching your memory about anything related, a book, a story, a person, even a joke! This will lead you to an idea for sure!
Good luck ;)

Congratulations! I don't even have the creativity skills needed to come up with anything to submit for those assignments. Very, very good! :-)
