Acceptance Policy

We accept simple 'slow paced' animation loops in banner ads but will reject any animated ad which contains flashing text or graphics.

We reserve the right to accept only advertisers which we feel are relevant to visitors to microstock insider, and will not accept any agency or service we feel has terms which are unfair for photographer and contributors.

We do not accept invitations to perform a paid review of a new website. New and existing sites are reviewed on a set of defined criteria.
