From October 1, 2021, we are accepting 3D Renders. 3D Renders are 3-dimensional images, designed in the software of your choice, rendered into JPEG images.

3D rendered submissions should comply with our general Submission Guidelines.


  • You must be the original creator of and own the rights to any image you share on Unsplash. You can read more about this in our Terms.

  • To ensure meeting our quality standards, we recommend using a package that utilizes the ray-tracing technique and is designated for high-quality and photo-realistic images, such as:

    • Blender

    • Autodesk 3DS Max

    • Cinema 4D

    • Maya

  • It can be easy to create many different variations when creating 3D renders, please be selective to only share your favourite ones.


  • Use other people’s images for the background (ex. a 3-dimensional spaceship with a NASA image in the background).

  • Use text overlays.

  • Use a software designed for simplified rendering.
