Music Briefs: Nursery Rhymes, Sci-Fi, Breaking News, Celtic Music

This month we’re looking for nursery rhymes, sci-fi, breaking news and Celtic music.

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
