For (uncredited) listings IMDb now usually needs some evidence that the credit is eligible for inclusion on the database. It seems to me that IMDb has become much stricter recently in this requirement, probably because too many people were submitting ineligible items.

The eligibility criteria are listed in the FAQ I worked on a film but did not receive a screen credit. Can I be listed in the database?

I assume you are this Jaimee Listokin, and that therefore you have the "pre-existing credited entry" required by point 2.

If your credit is for a Crew position then call sheets, contracts or payments should be enough to get the Credit accepted.

On the other hand, if these are for Cast, you need evidence that you fulfill point 6 :
For cast/acting appearances, you must be identifiable and featured on-screen in the final released cut of the film. In other words, it's not enough to have worked on a production: your scenes must be included in the final cut and it must be possible to easily identify your appearance (i.e. background work as a crowd member or a similar role where it's impossible to recognize the subject are not eligible). If you ended up on the cutting room floor, you are not eligible to be listed. We may ask you to supply evidence of this, so you should be prepared to provide photos/stills/screen grabs to verify that you are featured in the film.
For this purpose, the best evidence is a screen capture, showing your appearance in the finished film.

The easiest way to provide evidence is to upload such screen shots to a reply here and include the Reference ID of the submission in that post so that the Staff can match them up.

If the evidence you supply is confidential you need to upload a scan to the internet on a site that does not require a subscription to view it (dropbox is a good option), then fill out and submit the Data Verification form.
