When we talk about quiet backgrounds, we mean unique, unintrusive, or delicate backgrounds that don’t distract too much from a user’s message. These days, social media background searches are at an all-time high — especially vertical backgrounds for TikTok and Instagram. We are looking for vertical videos, photos, vectors, PNGs, and PSDs that can help customers with backgrounds for all their social media posts. Be sure to upload your content in the right dimensions for whatever social media app you are making the background for, and make sure to add the correct keywords!

We are looking for photos and AI-generated images in the trendy vertical quiet backgrounds theme.

When creating AI-generated images, ensure that only flawlessly rendered and distortion-free images are submitted to meet our high quality standards.


With the rise of vertical content in the social media space, we want to highlight and encourage trending creative opportunities for all our contributors. This month, we’re looking for video backgrounds in delicate and unobtrusive colors or patterns that are intended to help our customers create beautiful social media posts. Feel free to experiment with faded and/or contrasting colors and use symmetry and leading lines to create original video backgrounds in all social media formats and good resolutions. This translates into clean lines, distinct-shaped subjects and complementary colors, so don’t be afraid to play with various shapes, lines, points of view, or smoother animations. We cannot wait to see your submissions!
