What is r/place and how does it work
Reddit for the past few years is conducting an annual campaign which is known as the r/place. During the campaign, the entire Redditors get a blank canvas for a few days where they can add a single pixel of colour every five minutes. Only registered users can take part in the campaign and find the art on the official Reddit Place. Additionally, communities on Reddit, known as subreddits, come together and collaborate to plan and craft pixel art. However, these communities can be as small as just a few members or a large group consisting of millions of users.

Both iOS and Android applications are supported on the modern version of the social network, ensuring mobile users can also take part in the campaign.
