Contributor Tips

What to Create: July 2018


This month, we’re focusing on a couple of summer subjects, both possessing strong lifestyle angles. In addition, we’ve targeted a primary category with a popular photographic technique, timelapse. If you nail these subjects, you will enrich your collection with a variety of subject matter that’s always in demand with a long shelf life.

Check out the links below for each of this month’s individual creative briefs. Once you’ve completed one of them, 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 briefs, please email Pond5’s Director of Artist Development and Experience, Robert Pascale, at
