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.
