Step 1. Get Ready to Upload!

Go to the brief page

Step 2. Select a brief

Step 3. Upload your images

If you have a model or property release follow step 4, if not, continue to step 5.

Step 4. Model or Property Releases

Add your property or model release using our release uploader. Attach all your model and property releases for the batch of images you just uploaded.

Step 5. Congrats you’ve uploaded!

Your photos have been successfully added. The team will review your images.

So you’ve submitted photos, now what can you expect?

Your photos will have to go through a review to make sure they are:

  • Following the submission guidelines

  • Don’t have any IP/logo issues on the photos

  • The model or property releases have been filled out correctly

  • The quality is in line with Unsplash+

Review: Read our guide on what to expect with the review timeline.

Rejections: Read our guide on what the rejection reasons mean.

Releases: Read our guide on how to attach visual references and fill out a release correctly.

Approvals: Great job! You have approved photos! We’ll let you know how many images have been approved at the end of each month and begin the payment process.

Step 6. Get Paid on a Monthly Basis

At the beginning of each month, you will receive a statement with the total payment for accepted images for the previous month.

You’ll be required to submit your contact and banking information, and your preferred payment method, in order to be paid.
