Unless otherwise noted in the Guidelines, the same rules apply to all content on Behance. If you come across content that violates these Guidelines, please follow the instructions in the 'Report Abuse' section below. We take these to heart and hope that you'll do the same as well.
Behance is the leading online platform to showcase and discover creative work. To protect our users and maintain the high quality of content across the platform we don’t allow abusive or illegal content or behavior. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:
Please note that we may report any material exploiting minors to the National Center of Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) CyberTipline.
Behance is all about helping creative people get exposure for their work, and so we offer an adult content filter (the “Adult Wall”) that allows qualifying projects to be available to as broad an audience as possible. Many countries, schools, and companies will block websites without this feature.
Projects should go behind the Adult Wall if they contain adult content (this includes nudity, profanity, violence or any other material unsuitable for a younger audience, a global audience or people at work). To do this, go into the Settings for a specific project and select “This project contains adult content” under the “Content” heading. Content behind the Adult Wall is available only to registered Behance users who are over 18 and who live in countries where adult content is legal (for more on this topic, view the Helpcenter page about Adult Content on Behance).
The Adult Wall is only available to projects currently. Profile images and banner images, “Work in Progress” images, livestreams, jobs, comments, messages, Behance Creator Subscriptions, and other interactions on Behance must be appropriate for an audience of all ages and geographies and should not contain adult content.
We value artistic expression, but we ask that you keep your comments, private messages, and other communications constructive and respectful. We don't tolerate abusive, vulgar or insulting comments and messages.
The Behance community is for people to bring their authentic selves and to publicly share one’s own creative work. We disable accounts that engage in behavior that undermines the authenticity of our community, including but not limited to, the following deceptive or harmful behaviors:
Broadcasting or uploading other people’s work as your own is copyright infringement and is not tolerated. If you aren’t sure whether your use of someone else’s content or trademark in your work is legal, you can talk to an attorney or consult publicly available reference materials at the following:

We can't moderate contract, employment, or other disputes between our users and the public.
