Submission Guidelines

Thanks for contributing to Unsplash! You're awesome. To save you time and increase your submission's chance of being featured, please ensure:

  • Photos meet the minimum size requirement of 3 megapixels.
  • Photos are of good quality. Photos that are unclear, blurred or contain excess grain detract from quality.
  • Photos are not visually similar. If you have a set of similar photos to share, please pick your favourite and upload that one.
  • Photos are original. If you want to submit a remix that uses photos from Unsplash you can do so at
  • Photos are not over-edited.
  • Photos do not contain nudity.
  • Photos do not have borders, graphics or text overlayed on them.
  • Photos do not contain violent imagery. Unsplash is a place for people of all ages.

It should go without saying, but you must also own the rights to the photo.
