?? Emoji Proposals
Anyone can submit a proposal for a new emoji. It's free, and details on how to do this are available on the Unicode Consortium website.
Proposals should indicate that an emoji (if approved) would be well used, is visually distinct, and cannot already be represented. So before proposing, first have a search of Emojipedia to check that your idea doesn't already exist.
Criteria and instructions for submissions are found on the Unicode Consortium website:
Some useful URLs for reference:

- ?? Top Emojipedia Requests 2019 (popular suggestions from Emojipedia readers)
- ?? 2020 Emoji List (emojis approved for release in 2020)
Note: Images included within a proposal don't have to be created by the proposer, but if attaching example images from elsewhere they must first be in the public domain or licensed for non-commerical use.
