Check out the winners here!


I must be missing something, but that thread is about the contest and I didn't see a link to the winners - just examples of what you were looking for. I went to the Photo Dune home page but didn't see anything there either.


Yup, that's what I got.


Thanks, apologies, original link fixed :)

Envato / Re: A More Balanced Envato Market

Hey everyone, I know it's a bit confusing at first  ??? 

The $100 split example is one of the clearest ways of thinking about it, but Collis does a better job explaining it and some of the context around it in a few different ways on our forum here if you want to take a closer look:

http://photodune.net/forums/thread/a-more-balanced-envato-market-important-changes/140925?page=3#1109645

I'll redo Collis' example here from a non-exclusive author perspective:

OLD VERSION

(Purchase price of $10)
Buyer pays Author $10
Author pays Envato $6.70 (67%)
Author is left with $3.30
NEW VERSION

(Purchase price of $10)
Buyer pays Envato $2 (20% platform fee)
Buyer pays Author $8
Author pays Envato $4.40 (55% platform fee x $8)
Author is left with $3.60

Which means an increase in net author earnings!

Envato / Re: PhotoDune Non-ex Rate Increase from 25% to 33%
« on: September 01, 2014, 04:16 »
Hey everyone!  We've just announced some changes to our marketplace fee structure, as part of a new holistic approach that brings both author and buyer needs into better focus.  Our goal is to create a really fantastic experience that benefits both buyers and authors in the long term.

As part of this update, our fees to non-exclusive authors are decreasing which means an increase in net author earnings.  For a sale of an item with a list price of $100, a non-exclusive author will now have net earnings of $36 (for comparison, in our old fee structure, they would have received $33). We're working steadily towards a more competitive media offering for photos, footage, and other markets dominated by non-exclusive contributors.

The Become an Author page has a complete and more visual representation of this breakdown, with a fancy chart and slider :)

You can read more about this change on our Market Blog:
As well as our commitment to strengthening our media markets as part of our 2014 Roadmap.  Thanks!

AudioJungle / Greetings from AudioJungle!
« on: July 21, 2014, 16:40 »
Hey everyone, Eric from Envato here.  For those of you who dont yet know, AudioJungle is part of the Envato Marketplaces, dedicated to providing a place to buy and sell high quality music, sound effects, and audio to the royalty free community. 

Growing at an incredible pace, just this year we topped over 1 Million music licenses sold, have celebrated several new Elite authors to have sold more than $75,000 worth of licenses (now over 30+ AudioJungle authors in total), and introduced a new Personal Listening Music policy to help our exclusive authors earn even more with their music.  Not only that, but an increasing group of top AudioJungle authors are earning over $10,000+ per month!

If you are looking for new and exciting challenges, be sure to check out our Envatos Most Wanted contests where we offer great prizes and cash rewards for submitting items in high demand. In fact, we just wrapped up a hugely popular $4,000 contest for Dubstep Music, so be sure keep an eye out for more to come in the future.

With so many exciting opportunities and announcements in the making, we hope to see you around the marketplaces soon and share in our creative communitys continued success!

Feel free to open up the discussion here or connect with me directly if you have any questions about becoming a contributor :)
