Customizing the Look & Feel of Your Submission Form

The Look & Feel settings in your organization’s Submittable account allow you to personalize the appearance of your submission form. We encourage you to upload a header image containing your organization’s name and/or logo and to customize your submission form’s colors, font, and the text of your ‘Submit’ button.
To customize your Look & Feel, follow these steps:

1. Click ‘More’ in the main navigation bar. Then select ‘Configurations’ and click the ‘Look & Feel’ tab on the left-hand side of the screen. (Note: If you’re using an older version of Submittable, click ‘Settings’ in the main navigation bar > ‘Look & Feel’).
