When you upload your content to EyeEm market, it is mandatory for you to add a caption. This is important for your artworks to be found easily by buyers, along with the accurate choice of categories and styles.
A great caption contains the topic and content of your artwork, e.g. “seamless pattern of whales with blue and pink floral background elements”.
Be specific in what your artwork shows, as it is also a wonderful way to support accessibility for people with disabilities.
