Before you start selling music and sound effects on Pond5, you first need to verify your account with us. Before we can approve your submission, please provide us with the following:
- A screenshot of your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). By that you‘re proving to us that you compose your audio files yourself.
- Links to any audio-related web presence (Soundcloud, Bandcamp, AudioJungle, etc.)
If you are not currently on audio sites, your professional social networks like LinkedIn or Facebook may help show us that you have been established with other reputable media professionals.
Please send information firstname.lastname@example.org , indicate your username, and our support team will help you to get your tracks resubmitted.
As a reminder, Pond5 no longer accepts recognizable or copyrighted
- film and TV
- company names in titles, descriptions or keywords
Please also use non-trademarked terms in your metadata when describing your music.
Our Audio Curatorial process is engineered to carefully consider new and emerging submissions that will ultimately drive sales and create exposure while elevating opportunities for our Contributor community. In full transparency, we cannot accept everything, especially if your submissions may already have similar sounding versions currently within the Marketplace.
As a kind note, please keep in mind our Curators may reject submissions if they believe the assets will not have a significant impact within our Marketplace or may underperform.
For more information on what we’re looking for, please check out the Music Briefs.
