Call for Content: Changing the Lenscape | Explore the Gallery of Submitted Lenses

The long-awaited gallery of Snapchat Lenses submitted for our first Call for Content is ready. Try them out to experience how the Lenscape has changed thanks to all of the talented, inventive Creators who answered our Call! โœจ๐Ÿ–ผ

What was the challenge

2020 saw the premiere of many new Lens Studio capabilities, like SnapML, LiDAR or Body Tracking, which extended what Snapchat camera can do AR-wise very significantly. So, to support these exciting changes, together with Snap weโ€™ve called all AR Creators to take a step forward in their artistic journey – from trying out Lens Studio for the first time to coming up with a Lens theyโ€™ve never made before. Also, as a way to kick off 2021, we wanted to recognize Creators, who both test their skills and are active in the AR Community ๐Ÿ’ช

How did the Creators respond

Weโ€™re happy to announce that our encouragement to use new features such as Full Body Tracking, SnapML or World Mesh LiDAR was met with a huge, positive response from the Creators Community! Today, we want to thank all of the participants for accepting this challenge and sharing with us the results of their artistic experiments ๐Ÿค๐Ÿ‘ We are honoured to be at the receiving end of such an amount of high-quality, pioneering Lenses! ๐Ÿ’–

And here are the exact numbers:







with LiDAR


with SnapML


with Body Tracking

To give you a sample of what awaits you in the gallery, weโ€™ve prepared a selection of submitted Lenses for you to explore and try out yourself. Weโ€™ve highlighted the ones utilizing these 3 features, so you can better grasp which of these capabilities could help you express yourself best. Then, itโ€™s your turn: choose your favourite Lenses from the complete Changing the Lenscape gallery and share them with us!

LiDAR Lenses

This technology allows us to measure distances in 3D space by scanning it with a laser in all directions at the same time. When it comes to Snapchat, it revolutionized World Lenses by enabling Creators to make experiences that recognize walls, ceilings and objects and augment them flawlessly. Remember, though, that LiDAR is now available only for iPhone 12 Pro users. Read more๐Ÿ‘‰
