Hi benhoodmusic,

 

That's pretty standard. It takes longer to review image and video ads than text ads because an actual person is involved in the review. Be patient, it could take a couple days to be approved.

 

If you want your campaign to start on a certain day, create your ads well in advance (maybe a week or so) so they can get through the review process in time to run on schedule. Paused ads in paused campaigns still get reviewed.

 

Best of Luck!
