What is Ayewind?

Welcome to Ayewind, the brand new platform artists to share their work in a space dedicated to growing in talent. As well as sharing your work, our project page is designed to give artists the space to work together, forming partnerships to create bigger and better projects.

Our aim is to provide a platform that works for artists and helps professionals find new clients, share their work with ease across the web, and build an audience online.

How It Works

It’s easy to get started on Ayewind. You can create a profile for free and instantly upload your artwork. Others can view the art, follow your profile, and share your creations with their friends.

On our Project page, you can contact other artists and creators to work together on an upcoming project. Are you an animator, but need music for your media? Or do you need an easy explainer media for an upcoming work project? Ayewind collates talent from across the web into an easy-to-use platform.

In terms of finding work and collaborators, thanks to the built-in private messaging system and category system, it’s simple for recruiters to find your profile and send you a message. We hope that Ayewind will become the leading platform for finding talent from across the planet.

With the growth of the website, which is currently still in its Beta stage, we also hope to be able to offer monetization and other perks in the future. To get there, we need you - artists and art-lovers.

Building Your Profile

The key aim of Ayewind is to provide an easy-to-use platform for artists to build an online portfolio and share their work

Setting up your profile is very straightforward. Simply create an account and begin uploading your work. Your medias/artwork/creations are safe and secure on our platform. You can then share your profile as a form of digital portfolio and tag each piece of art with the category it falls into, making it easy for other users to find your work.

As A Viewer

Ayewind aims to become the leading space to discover brilliant artwork, learn from the professionals, and find educational content across a wide range of categories.

With the project page you can find creators to work with on a variety of different projects, and you can also take part in the battle system on Ayewind. Judge the artwork you see and help out some artists!

Now Is The Best Time To Get Involved

Ayewind is still in its early stages, a period of time we’re calling the website’s Beta. We’re looking for artists to get involved and share their feedback about the website. It’s your chance to have an impact on how the website works so that we can create a platform that works for creators (illustrators, artists, creators) of all kinds.

Ayewind Medal System

Ayewind has a built-in rating system determined by a variety of different factors - we call this the Medal System. Each media has a unique rating that influences the media’s appearance in the search results: the better the rating the more likely the media is to appear on the first page.

What Determines A Media’s Rating?

A media’s medal rating is determined by viewer rating, the number of views, likes and comments, and the relevance of the media in its set category. While all of these statistics will be available to creators who use Ayewind, we wanted to create a simple rating system that highlights a media’s success.

creators will be able to see a collated form of all their profile’s statistics, including their overall rank and the performance of their best medias. This is a system designed to reward popular medias and their creators.

Quality Creators, Quality Animation

We want Ayewind to be the premier location to source, watch and show-off quality animation on the web. That means we have to maintain a certain level of quality. This Medal System helps us to achieve just that.

medias which hit a low threshold will likely be put under review by our team. If they don’t match up to our quality control, they’ll be removed from the website.

Battle For Medal Score

Ayewind will feature a battle system. Two medias will be pitted up against each other for a viewer to decide which media they preer. This is an anonymous system where just the animated media (from the same category) is displayed to a viewer.

The medias which receive a positive vote will earn some extra Medal Score, while the medias that lose will miss out on potential score. This is a fun way for viewers to interact with creator’s medias and to give all medias a chance to appear on the site.

The Number To Beat

To further reward those who have successful medias on Ayewind, we’ve set a “Number To Beat”. This is the upper threshold for a popular media on the site in terms of its Medal Score. Beat this number and you’ll receive special perks and rewards that can help to improve your profile. This number will be constantly updated to reflect the community - you will be able to find it on the homepage.

Ayewind Affiliate Program

Building an audience for your work is never easy, especially when competition is tight and the internet awash with creative people .

Here at Ayewind it’s our goal to provide a unique platform that accelerates the growth of new creators and helps those with an already established audience branch out in different directions.

While many creators choose to upload their work to platforms such as YouTube, there is not much space for the multitude of animations: practical medias, animations for business, and medias for education, for example.

Introducing the Ayewind Affiliate Program. This is our way of giving back to the community on Ayewind. You can earn income from your animation medias, and it’s very straight-forward.

Earn Money On Ayewind With Views

Ayewind affiliates earn on their animated medias depending on the number of views reached. This is a fixed-rate and the same for every affiliate. This is a simple method to earn money from your medias, and it takes the hassle out of confusing SEO terms and CTR.

The way our affiliate system works is simple:

You earn for the views on your animated medias.

The way we see it, the first 5,000 views are more valuable than the views after 5,000, at least to begin with. This gives every animator an opportunity to get paid for their medias.

Each affiliate will be able to view all the data on their medias via their Ayewind dashboard. This will include information like the rate of viewership, the number of unique views per media, and how much you’ve earned from that month of viewers.

Build An Audience

Your Ayewind profile is designed to be the focal point of your animated work on the web. We hope we’re able to provide all the tools you need to effectively run a business off our platform, and build an audience with ease.

Thanks to our frequent competitions, featured medias and highlighted creators, your work will get attention on Ayewind. You can also introduce current followers to your new Ayewind portfolio to get a head start.

Affiliate Eligibility

Ayewind is still in its early stages, and the criteria for affiliate reflect that. This checklist is likely to change as the website grows in popularity, but earn your position now and you’re guaranteed the role no matter how large the website grows.

  • At least ONE media uploaded on Ayewind that reaches 1,000 views
  • Attract at least 30 followers to your Ayewind profile
  • Content that conforms to our Community Guidelines and Terms of Service

Please note, these achievements are the minimum requirements for us to consider granting the affiliate role. Completing them does not guarantee Partnership with Ayewind.

Becoming An Affiliate

If you fit the criteria and are ready to take the next step on Ayewind, you can send us your message via the built-in contact form on the website.

Please title the message:

Affiliate Partner - “Your Username”

In the message, tell us a little about yourself and how you fit into the community on Ayewind. Please list any other achievements that you think might be beneficial to your Partnership application, including achievements on other platforms or social media.

Include links to your social media accounts (if you have any) and let us know how you intend on growing on Ayewind, your own personal goals, and what you’d like to see from us as your hosts here on the platform.

We take the time to read through each application individually. As a result, it may take some days for us to get back to you. Please be patient, we’re working through them!

Please take these notes as general guidelines and we’re excited to read through your application. Once a decision is made you’ll be notified via email and an on-site notification with instructions on the next step of your application

Please note, we are still in the early stages of the Ayewind Affiliate Program and therefore we can’t accept all applications. We have also established a maximum earning threshold during these early stages of Ayewind. This will change in time as the website and program grows in size and scope.

Who owns the copyright of the images on Ayewind ?

Every illustration on Ayewind belongs to the artist or the creator of the image. Only artists have the copyrights of royalty-free images and they give the ‘rights to use the image’ to the buyers.

The image’s copyright remains with the owner and only the license for appropriate use of the image is transferred to the buyer. Ayewind acts as a broker between the copyright owner of the image and buyers.

Artists receive a percentage of the price when someone buys the right to use the artwork. They make money from selling the image’s license to many buyers at the same price or variable price according to their free will.

Benefits of Royalty-Free Images :

Royalty-free images have gained tremendous popularity because they are cheap, instantly available and easy to license. If you like an image from the Ayewind’s gallery that you would like to use commercially, you can purchase it for one fixed price and have the lifetime right to use it.

Many stock websites sell short-term image licenses, and when the period is over, you have to track down the artist who has the copyright and renew the license by paying again. This process is not only complicated but quite risky

Fortunately, the royalty-free images are more practical, free of legal implications and don’t require you to renew the license again and again.

Royalty-free means that after the upfront payment, you have the right to use the image for numerous purposes without any time limits.

Artists also benefit from royalty-free images when they receive a percentage of the price, every time the license is sold to a new buyer.

The royalty-free image licensing ensures plenty of benefits for both parties; artists and buyers.

Rights and Restrictions

Lot of people think royalty-free images once licensed can be used any way you want. This is not true. Although you have the right to use them, you are not the owner of the image, you only have the right to use the image as long as you follow the rights and restrictions below:

  • Frequency and Duration. You can use the royalty-free images as many times as you want and for as long as you want.
  • Non-transferable. The royalty-free images that you license are in your name. The license cannot be transferred, resold, or gifted to someone else.
  • Geographical-Use. Images can be used anywhere in the world.
  • Credits. Giving credits to the copyright owner is not mandatory.
  • Usage. You can use the images in print media, social media, websites, and all types of advertisements. They can be used everywhere, except the restricted places that are mentioned in the license agreement.
  • Non-Exclusive Rights. The royalty-free images are sold to numerous individuals who pay for them, and they all have a general license. If you want to have more rights, such as the right to resell or produce copies, you will have to purchase an extended or exclusive license.
  • Restrictions

    • You cannot share the image with others for further use, similarly, the picture cannot be shared on a network, intranet, or shared access drive or sold to a third party
    • Use of royalty-free images in creating content related to sensitive topics such as politics, gender, and religion is prohibited
    • You cannot portray the model or property in the image to be endorsing a service or product.
    • The image cannot be used in pornographic or sexually explicit content.
    • The royalty-free image cannot put the model or properties shown in the image in a negative, offensive, obscene, discriminatory, or morally questionable position.
    • The image cannot be a part of a logo or trademark, because the copyright does not belong to you.

    Different Uses of Royalty-Free Images
