  • Backgrounds should be at least 4K, or 1440p at minimum
  • Images containing explicit material will not be accepted
  • Images must be licensed under a permissive license that allows modification (a good example is CC BY-SA)

Once you are satisfied that your submission meets these requirements, you can submit a background by joining the Discord server and posting your submission in the #backgrounds channel. In your submission, note down

  • The license which you are releasing your work under
  • The location of the image that you took (if possible)
  • A name for the image
