What is a “Creator Call-out?”
Creator Call-outs are a way for professional photographers to participate in gifted and paid content creation for Sprout Studio.
Sprout Studio users are eligible to earn commission on top of campaign earnings when they join our Sprout Studio Ambassador Program.
*See Ambassador Terms & Conditions upon application.
PART A – WHAT TO EXPECT
Creator Call-Outs are for the content we’re seeking to be created, typically as part of a marketing campaign or launch.
We'll post a project brief in our Sprout Studio Ambassador Group outlining the content we're looking for you to create, plus the rate of pay for accepted submissions. Think of it as an online job board for freelance creators! You can apply to any Call-Outs posted that are ‘open' for submissions.
Call-Outs will always specify the:
- Project idea or title
- Timeframe and completion date
- Payment listing
- Preferred social platform for posting
PART B – HOW TO APPLY
The form will guide you with the following fields:
- The title of the project
- How you plan to execute the project (this can be in point-form)
- Include your email address
- Include your social media handle(s) for CPM rates (if applicable)
Once you've submitted your application, comment on the posting to let us know you've applied!
- Creators whose applications are accepted will be contacted within 2 business days of applying.
- Creators must complete and submit their content within 5 days of the original project brief posting.
- Creators whose submissions are accepted will get paid via Paypal within 5 business days after the completion of the content piece.
PART C – CREATOR “CALL-OUTS” VS CREATOR “SPONSORSHIP”
Creator “Call-Outs” are for the content we’re seeking to be made, such as Reels, TikToks, blog posts, YouTube videos, etc.
Unless specified, Creators applying to a Call-out are not required to post the content they create for Sprout on their own social accounts and are not required to have a large online following or pre-existing audience.
For Creators replying to Call-Outs who do have a large following and want to post the content to their own social platforms, please include such handles in your application for the potential to increase the payment listing if your application is accepted!
Not seeing a Call-Out that inspires you? Pitch us your own idea for sponsored content creation.
