Community Guidelines

Community Guidelines

We do not tolerate spam. Examples of spam include:

  • Emailing or direct messaging people that you have no personal connection to, especially when it’s done en masse
  • Using email lists that have been procured from third parties
  • Promoting your project on other Fotofund project pages; poaching backers from other Fotofund projects

The success of your project relies on you sharing your project with friends, fans, and followers, however invading the inboxes and social networks of people that you have no personal connection to is unacceptable. We take a hard line on spamming because it reflects you and all other Fotofund projects poorly. It also flags your project for review and possible removal from the Fotofund community. Furthermore, violating these rules or our Terms of Use may result in your account being deleted and/or your project being suspended.
Project Creator Guidelines

The following guidelines are for project creators. They’re meant to give project creators a clear sense of the types of projects accepted by Fotofund.

  • Fotofund is a funding platform exclusively for photo-based projects. Projects that do not incorporate photography will not be accepted.
  • Everything on Fotofund must be a project. A project has a clear end and some tangible thing will be produced as a result.
  • Creators cannot offer equity or financial incentives (ownership, share of profits, repayment/loans, cash-value equivalents, etc.).
  • Projects cannot resell items or offer rewards not produced by the project or its creator.
