What is Pond5 All About?

Our goal is to empower media makers with the web's fastest, friendliest and fairest marketplace for stock media and creative content.

A world of stock media at your fingertips
Our rapidly growing library includes the web's largest collection of royalty-free video, a huge selection of music tracks and sound effects, and a fast-growing set of customizable After Effects projects.

Artist Friendly
Pond5 offers artists one of the best deals in the industry: they have the liberty to set the prices for their work, and earn 50% of each sale - significantly higher than the the alternatives. Our contract is non-exclusive, and artists retain full rights to their work.

If you have professional quality stock media, we'd love to represent it! Find out more about selling stock on Pond5.

Low prices
With prices starting at just $2 for audio and $5 for video, pro-quality stock content is within reach for media makers everywhere. Prices on Pond5 tend to be the lowest in the industry, because they are are set by the artists themselves, who earn a much higher percentage than they do elsewhere.
