Submit to Creator Showcase

Want to be a part of the Creator Showcase? Follow these instructions.

Steps

There are only two major steps :)

  1. If this is your first contribution to the Gatsby open source repo, follow the Contribution guidelines.

  2. Upload a photo of yourself or a logo of your company/agency to this directory. Images should have a square aspect ratio with 500px minimum (eg 500px X 500px) to 1000px maximum resolution and should carry the same name as what you put in the name field on creators.yml, but with a dash instead of spaces.

    For example,

    if name is: Fabian Schultz

    image name should be, fabian-schultz.jpg

    if name is: Iron Cove Solutions

    image name should be, iron-cove-solutions.jpg

  3. Edit the creators.yml file by adding your submission to the bottom of the list of sites in the following format:

docs/creators/creators.yml
- name: Your Name

  # You can choose one of three `types`: agency, company, or individual
  type: agency
  description: >-
    We help agencies and companies with JAMStack tools. This includes web
    development using Static Site Generators, Headless CMS, CI / CD and CDN
    setup.
  location: Poland
  website: "https://yourname.io/"
  github: "https://github.com/githubusername"
  image: images/image.jpg

  # Right now, you can only answer true to either `for_hire` or for `hiring`, but not for both.
  for_hire: true
  hiring: false

  # If you mark `portfolio: true`, any sites you have in the Site Showcase that say `built_by: [imagine your name here]` will be linked to your Creator Profile. So make sure that `name`in `creators.yml` is exactly the same as `built_by` in `sites.yml`.
  portfolio: true

Use the following template to ensure required fields are filled:

docs/creators/creators.yml
- name: (required)
  type: (required - agency, company, or individual)
  image: (required - images/{filename}.{ext})
  description: >-
    (optional)
  location: (optional)
  website: (optional)
  github: (optional)
  for_hire: (optional)
  hiring: (optional)
  portfolio: (optional)
  1. If you sent your websites to the Showcase before but have not filled out the “builtby” field, you should edit sites.yml and add your name (and the builtby field if it is not there) there as well to make sure your portfolio pieces are linked to your page.

Review process

By default, all edits submitted to the Creator Showcase will be reviewed through the regular PR approval and merge process.

Change your mind / need to edit your submission?

If you want to edit anything in your site submission later, simply edit the creators.yml file by submitting another PR.
