Canvas content policy

We have some limits on the type of content you can use as a Canvas.

Legally compliant

Make your Canvas your own. Make sure you have the correct permission if you use media that isn't yours.

Appropriate for Spotify

The Canvas shouldn’t be hateful, abusive, pornographic, threatening, or obscene.

Promotional content

Canvas is a place for you to enhance and add to your artistic message, and shouldn't be used to sell anything or be overly promotional.

Follow these guidelines when creating your Canvas:

  • Keep listeners in Spotify. Avoid directing people to any websites or URLs, ticket vendors, and encouraging follows or likes on social media.
  • Any text must be relevant to the specific track and not distract from your underlying image/artwork. It shouldn't promote other songs or unrelated albums, social media accounts, brands (including use of Spotify’s logo), products, discounted deals, fan experiences or encourage fans to take part in contests or sweepstakes. Any text should support the image or artwork you choose, which should always remain the primary focus of the Canvas surface.

We might remove your Canvas if it's used for overly promotional purposes.
