I have never had a lot of luck with assignments but this time had two images approved towards the end of the submission period.

I saw two pictures of Venice already approved and then looked back at my pictures taken last Summer in Venice found a choice of gondolas with holidaymakers taking a trip and also a wood carvers studio taken in the Italian Alps at Cortina so submitted two images which were approved. Normally I think they would have been ineligible without model / property releases.

I recommend everybody to go through all the accepted assignment images and imagine you are an Editor.

What proportion of the images would you have approved ?

We have to remember liking or disliking images is not totally objective.

Your article must be written in English
