Have a top-notch 3D model/texture/hdri you'd like to publish on Poly Haven?
Your asset must be 100% your own original work.
By sending us your asset, you will be releasing it under the CC0 license, forfeiting your copyright.
Once we upload it to Poly Haven, anyone will be able to do anything they want with your asset, which is awesome and really generous of you, but it's important you understand that and know that it cannot be revoked. Once you declare something as CC0, it's in the public domain forever and cannot ever be made private again.
You cannot include any copyrighted materials in your asset such as textures that you didn't make yourself, unless you have explicit permission to redistribute derivative work as CC0, or the textures are CC0 themselves.
If your asset includes any real-world logo, trademark, or copyrighted design, we cannot accept it.
Similarly, if your asset is a digital copy of another design that you didn't make (e.g. real-world firearms, furniture, etc.), or based on someone else's concept art, we cannot publish it.
Once your asset is approved, you'll be signing a legal agreement to confirm all of this and providing proof of authorship.
Quality over quantity is key on the internet these days, so unfortunately that means we have to be very strict about reviewing your asset in order to maintain a high standard of quality on Poly Haven.
Feel free to chat to us on Discord if you're not sure the quality of your asset is high enough. We may be able to provide some feedback, or help you work on it.
If you'd like to make our lives easier and get your asset published more quickly, please check out our technical standards document:
No, sorry. We have a very limitted budget which we need to use to support our staff to work on our own assets. However, when we hire artists to create new content, donors like you are the first people we look at.
This may change in future, but for now it's simply a selfless donation to the community.
If we publish your asset, you obviously receive full credit, and we can optionally include a link to your PayPal/Patreon/Ko-fi account in case someone wants to donate to you directly.
