Snapchat Geofilters is one of the most popular features on the Snapchat app. Geofilters is nothing but one of the types of different filters available on Snapchat. Geofilters are special overlays for snaps that get available based on your geolocation.

How To Create Your Own Custom Snapchat Community Geofilters?Snapchat Geofilters are accessible only at a select few popular locations. Snapchat Geofilters are currently available at special locations like Disneyland, Malibu, Santa Monica, Venice, Beverly Hills etc. So, if you live in an obscure location and also don’t venture out much, you could probably never get to use these amazing Snapchat Geofilters. If your location doesn’t have a Geofilter yet, and if you are creative enough, Snapchat has an option for you. Snapchat lets you create and submit your own custom community Geofilters for any location around the world. Snapchat has rules, guidelines and tips for community Geofilters. If Snapchat feels your custom Geofilter is up to the task, it makes the Geofilter available to all its users.

How To Create Your Own Custom Snapchat Community Geofilters?

 Snapchat has certain guidelines regarding the custom community Geofilters you can create. Snapchat wants you to create Geofilters for landmarks, public places etc. and not for businesses. You should also keep the Geofilter as local as possible and geofence only the relevant area.

Snapchat wants you to create 100 percent original artwork without any logos or trademarks for the custom community Geofilter. You should submit/upload a web-optimized, transparent PNG image file with 1080px width and 1920px height. The image file should be no more than 300kb in size.

You can submit your custom Snapchat community Geofilters at https://www.snapchat.com/geofilters/submit.html . All you need to do is upload the Geofilter file and geofence the area where the Geofilter should be available, and hit submit after filling a short form.

Now that you have submitted your Geofilter, all you need to do is wait for some communication from Snapchat that your custom Geofilter has been accepted.

Snapchat community Geofilters are a boon for people living in countries outside the U.S. where zero to very few Geofilters are available. Just bring out the creative genius in you and do your community, town, city a favor by creating a special custom Snapchat Geofilter.
