Fan Art Guidelines

We're thrilled that you're interested in creating and sharing your original illustrations or artwork inspired by Palia (“Fan Art”) with our community. Singularity 6 believes Fan Art is the highest form of community expression. We welcome all Palians to create and share Fan Art inspired by Palia in Singularity 6’s official community channels (Ex., discord.gg/playpalia). 

However, to make sure that celebration of your Fan Art upholds the cozy and safe community we aspire to, please take a moment to read through these guidelines, which should be read in conjunction with our End User License Agreement and Terms of Service (“EULA/TOS”) (together, the “Terms”), to ensure understanding of the terms and conditions by which you share your artwork in our official channels. Where there is any inconsistency between these guidelines and our EULA/TOS, the EULA/TOS shall take precedence. For the avoidance of doubt, we retain all exclusive rights in our intellectual property relating to Palia and nothing in this policy shall be taken as a waiver of those rights. 

It's important to us that you understand that by submitting your Fan Art on any of Singularity 6’s official community channels, you agree to these Terms and acknowledge that Singularity 6 can freely use your fan art in any form and for any reason. If you have any questions about these Fan Art Submission Guidelines, please feel free to reach out to our community team at community@singularity6.com.

Your Fan Art may be selected by Singularity 6 to be shared on our various official social media platforms, websites, email newsletters, in the game Palia, or any other platform or service owned or controlled by Singularity 6. Please note that Singularity 6 reserves the right to remove any Fan Art at any time, at its sole discretion.

To make sure your Fan Art is suitable for sharing in our official channels, please comply with our Terms, including the following guidelines:

  1. We ask that you stick to the existing in-game character design and lore when creating your fan art. This includes not creating new characters, storylines, or quests, or designing new outfits for existing characters, and also not combining existing characters (e.g., no mashups or crossovers). This is to ensure that your fan art is aligned with the canon of Palia and Singularity 6's story.
  2. When you share your Fan Art on social media platforms, please ensure it is compliant with the terms and guidelines of that platform and our Terms. 
  3. When creating your Fan Art, we ask that you use only original illustrations or artwork that you have created yourself based on existing in-game character designs and lore. Please avoid using any third-party content (such as titles or images from movies and television shows, artwork, or photos) except for the Singularity 6 Content specified in the applicable call-to-action, such as requests to submit in-game screenshots to our social channels. Also, please do not repurpose, edit, or alter any existing artwork that is attributed to another artist without their written permission.
  4. Your submission of Fan Art to any channels or platforms operated or controlled by us is your acknowledgement that such submission is provided without any expectation of payment, regardless of how it may be subsequently shared by us.
  5. Before you post Fan Art that includes other people (for example, cosplays), please ensure that you have received any and all necessary releases and/or consents from any person other than yourself who appears in the Fan Art. Also, please ensure that any person appearing in the Fan Art is at least 18 years old or of legal age in their state of residence. If you are not sure, please do not submit it. We want to make sure that we respect the privacy and rights of everyone involved.
  6. When creating your Fan Art, please avoid including any personally identifiable information about yourself or any third parties, such as names, addresses, email addresses, or phone numbers. This list is not exhaustive.
  7. Fan Art must not include any commercial or corporate advertising (e.g., corporate logos, brand names, slogans), recognizable branded products, or commercial artwork in your Fan Art. Let's keep the focus on your creative expression and the fun of the Palia community.
  8. Fan Art should be based exclusively on storytelling from Singularity 6's canon and should not include song lyrics or any popular culture references or elements from other intellectual properties. 
  9.  Please refrain from including any religious or political references.
  10.  Please keep in mind that Fan Art may not be submitted by anyone making unauthorized commercial use of Singularity 6 characters or properties. 
  11. When sharing your Fan Art on social media platforms, we request that you use the hashtag #PALIAFANART. Please note that Singularity 6 may add, remove, or edit the hashtags for any Fan Art at its sole discretion. While we aspire to credit artists whenever possible, there may be some instances where we are not able to note the source. If you find that your Fan Art appears somewhere uncredited, or you wish to have your name or handle removed from a credits list, please reach out to community@singularity6.com with all necessary details.

We understand that as a creative community, things may change over time, so we reserve the right to update these Terms from time to time. Please check this page and our EULA/TOS regularly to stay up-to-date on any revisions. Your continued submission of Fan Art will be taken as your acceptance of any updates.

Please note that Singularity 6 and its partners, affiliates, licensees, writers, and artists are always coming up with new Palia characters, storylines, and gameplay elements. If you ever see something in Palia the game or on official merchandise that reminds you of something from your Fan Art, please understand that any similarities are likely coincidental. Singularity 6 and its affiliates do not agree to credit or pay you for the use of any elements or ideas similar to those in your artwork submission.

Thank you for taking the time to read through these Terms. While there is a lot to process, please know that they are in place to ensure a safer, more kind community for everyone. We can’t wait to see what you make!
