General Guidelines
Applies to all fan art submissions in the Partner Program

Be original.
While your work will include a brand’s Intellectual Property (like a company’s logo or a character from a TV show), it’s important to add something original of your own - make it unique.
Do your research - make sure your design hasn’t already been done.

Don’t submit screenshots or imagery taken directly from the property.

Be mindful of explicit content.
Some brands might be ok with adult content, but others aren’t. Check each brand’s guidelines if you want to know more about what each partner thinks is ok.

Be creative.
Play with styles and mediums.
Get inspiration from the brand - watch, read, or play it again.

About Orphan Black

Comp_OrphanBlack_rev.jpg

SARAH is an outsider, orphan and street-wise chameleon with a murky past and a tenuous future. When she witnesses the suicide of a stranger who looks just like her, she assumes “Beth’s” identity, hoping to solve all her problems with a quick score. Instead, she stumbles into a kaleidoscopic mystery. The truth is they are clones. There are more out there – genetic identicals, planted in unsuspecting birth parents and nurtured in wildly different circumstances. Not knowing who created them or why, Sarah forges deep bonds with her identical ‘sestras’.

As this unusual family unravels the insidious conspiracy behind the clone experiment, they elicit increasing danger from the corporation who seeks to control them. The sisters are each pushed to a personal breaking point where they’re forced to deeply question their identity and purpose. Emerging stronger through these self-explorations, the sisters place themselves at great risk to attain freedom for themselves, their families, and the host of clone sisters they’ve yet to meet.
