The Approval Process for Spark AR Effects

Once you've submitted an effect made in Spark AR Studio, it will be reviewed. This can take up to a week - excluding weekends.

The Approval Process

Effects submitted to both Facebook and Instagram are reviewed to make sure they follow our community standards and platform policies.

If you're submitting an effect to Instagram, there are some extra guidelines you'll need to follow to make sure your effect is approved.

We also make sure the effect icon follows our guidelines.

When your Effect will be Visible

Until the effect is approved, it won't be visible to the public. However, you can share a link to the effect with your friends and followers.

If your effect is accepted, you'll be notified on Facebook and in the Spark AR Hub.

If your Effect is Rejected

If your effect is rejected, you'll also be notified. Review our community standards and platform policies, edit your effect in Spark AR Studio and submit it again.
