For search network - you could use text ads only. The image ad was disapproved on the display network.
If you find a competitor violating the policy - report using this link;

Hi Albert,


I am just wondering whether your ads got disapproved due to adut images or due to Heathcare and Medicines Policy. Did you check the Policy Details by customizing the columns in the Ads Tab and including that metric? What does it say that which policy is being violated?


In case it is only because of the images you used in the display ads, then you will have to delete them and create family safe ads to be in compliance:
