Apply for a Brand or Creator account using our application form located here! Please note, our Artist program is invite only. To be considered, please apply as a Creator. To learn more about our invite only artist program, please check out our article, Apply for an Artist Channel .
You must Log In or Create a new GIPHY account and upload at least 5 GIFs or Stickers to proceed. Make sure you created or own your uploads, and that they accurately reflect how you intend to use your Brand or Creator account. If you're a Brand awaiting a launch, you can upload the GIFs or Stickers privately and they will still be counted as part of your application. If you're a creator, we will need at least 5 GIFs or Stickers to be public (not private) to process your application. Visit “Making GIFs and Stickers” to learn more!
Once you've connected your GIPHY account, you'll be able to see our application form! Here's what you need to know before submitting your application. Please read carefully, applications are limited to one per GIPHY account.
Brands are required to use an email address with a company domain that matches the applying username, ex: firstname.lastname@example.org.
For Creator accounts, please use the email at which we can most easily reach you.
If you are applying for a Brand channel, your GIPHY username must accurately reflect the name of your business (numbers, underscores and other special characters are discouraged here). Visit "Change your GIPHY Username" for more information.
Use your full name in this field (ex. Jane Smith). For Creator applications, pseudonyms are acceptable.
Double check your Display Name contains the text you would like to display on your Brand or Creator account. We will pull this field from your existing account Settings if it’s filled out, but if it’s not you will be prompted to add a Display Name in order to complete this form.
Brand applications require a working link to the business' custom web domain in this field (ex: ours would be http://giphy.com). For Brands, social accounts do not qualify here. Creators: please link us to a spot online that best represents your work.
Enter the full URL of the social media account that best represents you or your brand’s web presence. (ex: http://instagram.com/giphy). If you are applying for a Brand channel and are verified elsewhere, it would be best to use that link here!
All applicants must have an Avatar. You will be prompted to upload (or re-upload) an Avatar on the application form. 250x250 (JPG, PNG or GIF) are all supported.
Parent Company (Optional)
If you are applying for a Brand channel, it is recommended, but not required, to complete this field if it is relevant to your business
