Is Your Snapchat Filter Being Denied?
Are you thinking of getting a Snapchat geofilter for your event? You are at the right place if you want to avoid the pitfalls of submitting a Snapchat geofilter. Many have tried; few have succeeded. Here are six reasons why your Snapchat geofilter is being declined.
1. Background of Your Geofilter Not Transparent
All Snapchat geofilters must have a transparent background. Those that do not have a transparent background will block out the area around the geofilter that you designed, which violates Snapchat’s policies. All Snapchat geofilters must be submitted in PNG format to ensure that the background is transparent.
2. You Used Photographs
Photographs are not allowed on Snapchat geofilters. Any design submissions that feature these will be automatically denied by Snapchat.
3. Design Too Large
Snapchat wants you to look good and to ensure that the user has a good experience. All designs submitted should be 1080 x 1920 px. Anything larger or smaller may not display correctly on the Snapchat app and will be denied.
4. Hashtags / Website URLs
There is no place for hashtags in a Snapchat geofilter. Hashtags and website URLs are strictly forbidden.
5. Graphics 100 percent original
All designs must be completely original. Designs that are revised or recycled from other places will get the boot by Snapchat.
