Request accreditation and increase your visibility

Everyone can contribute to Placecloud with their own viewpoints. But, we have a special place in our heart for academic researchers, writers, artists, and other experts who are dedicated to revealing the extraordinary richness of our world through their viewpoints.

If you believe you fit one of the accreditations below, we invite you to apply for accreditation. Accredited contributors are marked as such, and, as an accredited contributor, your viewpoints are more prominently displayed within our platform.

We prefer researchers active in academia, with NGOs, or in institutions. We also encourage published authors, artists with a developed practice, as well as certified tour guides to apply.

We aim to get back to you within 48 hours.
