The option to message fellow Unsplash members is available on profiles, unless the member has chosen to opt out of the feature.

Here’s our recommended best practices when it comes to sending a message:

  • The Unsplash Community is made up of great people — please keep the tone of messages polite and respectful. 🙏 
  • Aim to send a message with a minimum of 20 words. Messaging is a great way to make meaningful connections within the Unsplash community, so please avoid short interactions like ‘hi!’ or ‘nice pics’. Messages with less than 20 words are likely to get flagged as spam and may not be sent.
  • No spam please! Do not copy and paste the same message multiple times to multiple users — these will get flagged as spam and not sent.

Users that repeatedly break these guidelines risk having their account locked.
