This month we’re looking for campfire songs, lost psychedelic classics, the smoothest of jazz and the funkiest of klezmer.
Once you’ve completed your work, a unique code can be applied to each track – just add the code (provided in each brief) to your keyword tags when you upload. That way, we’ll know which genre you’ve been focusing on.
If you have any questions or comments about any of these briefs, please email Pond5’s Director of Audio Collections, Mike Pace, at email@example.com.
Light a fire, wrap a scarf around your neck, pull out the acoustic guitar (fingerpick if you can) and soak in the chill of fall.
