Contributor Tips

What to Create: November 2018


This month we’re focusing on outdoor sports and lifestyles. Hiking, urban running, and parkour images are loaded with a variety of strong concepts that clients look for beyond their literal interpretation. We know that concepts are often searched by clients before a subject comes to mind. With said, It’s important to add conceptual keywords to all of your titles. Conceptual keywords have the power to reveal a more complex meaning to the viewer, which translates to more sales for you.

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
