Cover wasn't approved because....?

So. Before I leave the community (For now) I decided to finish a chapter of my story and publish it. With that, I made myself new covers, but they were rejected. At first, they were approved and just as I was about to publish, I noticed they were now rejected because" Contains references to real persons or places that might violate rights of publicity or privacy."
This was my cover.


I just don’t understand. I created this by myself, and the background was free. I also don’t get:
people can have half-naked people kissing and doing other things and their covers are approved but not mine
Things like this are what’s making me leave this community.

So anyway: What can I do to change it? I need it changed fast.

Maybe cause they are kinda realistic? Maybe uh.,the background is realistic? I honestly am stunned that it was rejected.

I searched online for (Im not sure the eact words but)
“free to use commercially… etc”

I was always thought that those were free to use but maybe not…?

Hm, have your characters in a png image with your name. What kind of background is it? Flower landscape?

Something like that, but I guess I’ll try it with a different background :woman_shrugging:

Maybe it wasn’t free, idk

How about this one? Pixabay.com is a free public domain site with good backgrounds you can use.

Actually they don’t really it can take a day or two especially due to the AW contest things are getting approved pretty quick so they might answer u fast as well

huh didn’t you use this background? because it looks exactly like the one you used on that pic and this one is for commercial use? that means you can use them so I don’t really get it? maybe it’s the uhm word style ?
