Job Description

There are many different things that require backgrounds including our premade Backgrounds on their own as well as layouts. We're looking for someone who is very skilled in creating backgrounds.


The person we are looking for must meet the following qualifications.

  • You are able to create tiled backgrounds for our background page as well as layouts.

  • You accept that when you make something for the site it will then become the site's and if you were to ever leave, the graphics you contributed would stay.

  • You plan on doing this job for quite a long time. We are not looking for people who will quit after a month. Please only apply if you're sure you will enjoy this job.

  • You are able / allowed to download and install an FTP Program. We use this program to upload files on the SunnyNeo webserver and edit them as well. Without this program you will not be able to upload your work.

  • You are okay with us giving you some graphic criticism and maybe asking for some changes to be made if need be.

  • You do not work for another Neopets related website.


Below you can see a list of our preferences. You do not need to meet these preferences, but it's a big bonus if you do. If you don't meet our preferences you can still apply, after all, they're preferences, not requirements.

  • You be out of highschool, or 15/16 years or older.

  • You have Discord (preferred) or Skype.

  • You do not have a website with your own Neopets backgrounds on it. We would like the person to not have any ties to another Neopets website, other than SunnyNeo. Some exceptions still apply (hence why this is just a preference). For example, if you have your own petpage of custom backgrounds this is fine. If you create premades on your own petpage, this is also okay as long as you are still productive with SunnyNeo. If you would be willing to move your previously made backgrounds to SunnyNeo, this would be ideal.


Please read the note below. We will not take any applications into consideration without a portfolio.

Before you decide to apply for the position of background composer at SunnyNeo you MUST make a graphics portfolio. Your portfolio will show us an overview of the backgrounds you have made in the past. We have set up an example portfolio for you to use as your guideline. Click here to see the graphics portfolio. You can use our example portfolio to make your own, or you can design one yourself. Please include a few different types of backgrounds in your portfolio. We would prefer it if you could show as many things as possible. Think about showing both different kinds of backgrounds, and different kinds of styles that you can do. The more you show us, the more your application will shine. If you can do different types of backgrounds, please include an example of each type i.e. tiled, large scale, x-repeat, y-repeat. More rules about how to show your work are in the example portfolio, be sure to read it carefully.

Please work on making a good, solid portfolio before applying. Your portfolio will put the most weight in your application, so make sure its 100% done when you send in your application form. Don't worry if it takes longer than a day for you to make.

Finally, make sure that your neomail is not on neofriends-only. If we like your work we will contact you for some further details.
