Summer Summary: The Pond5 Shoot Brief Collection


With summer quickly approaching, there’s never been a better time to grab your gear and catch up on all of the shoot briefs that you may have missed in the first half of the year. To make it easier, we’ve collected all of our previous briefs here, along with a few useful reminders. We’ve already received some great submissions generated from these briefs and have shared the work with our customers with overwhelming success. In the coming months, we’ll be continuing to identify upcoming trends in the marketplace, so there’s plenty more to come!

Check out the links below for each of the individual shoot briefs from previous months. Once you’ve completed a brief, a unique code needs to be applied to each clip — just add the code (provided at the top of each brief) to your keyword tags when you upload. That way, we’ll know which brief you’ve been focusing on. If you have any questions or comments about any of these shoot briefs, just email Pond5’s Director of Artist Development and Experience, Robert Pascale, at
