Iconscout allows you to upload a variety of resources like Icons, Illustrations, and Stock Photos. Submitting your resources on Iconscout is totally free and you will retain the copyright of them.
Here is step by step process to upload Icons.
Step 1: Upload Icons
Click on the Upload button and select Icons from below options.
We only accept SVG files in which icon should be placed within square artboard i.e. 32px X 32px, 64px X 64px, etc. You will find more information about square artboard here: Why it is important to save icon in square artboard?
Iconscout allows you to upload icons two way: as Individuals or as a Pack. When you have individual icons which are not related to each other in terms of topic, category or style then you can upload them individually.
A Pack is a group of icons which offer same topic, category, style etc. When you have these resources which share same interest then you can upload them in a single pack.
Submit as Individuals
Please note that when you select Submit as Individuals, you can upload multiple icon files at same time. Since those icons are not sharing same property in terms of topic, category or style, you are uploading them as Individuals.
Submit as Pack
You will need minimum 6 icons to create a pack. Make sure that all the icons share the same property.
Select one of the options above and simply drag and drop files into the uploading window or click to select multiple files from your system.
Step 2: Keywords, Licensing, and Pricing
Once your icons are successfully uploaded you will need to provide information like Name, Keywords, License, Pricing, etc. Name and Keywords information will make your icons more discoverable. You can find more information about Name and Keywords here: Keywords guidelines and best practice.
Iconscout is allowing users to search for icon pack as well. A proper name will make it more discoverable. Make sure that it reflects icons in the pack.
Give a descriptive description of icon pack.
Each icon pack should be part of a particular bundle. You can select bundle name from drop-down box or create the one from there. Find more information about Bundle here: What is Bundle and how to create one?
