We made some small changes to make it easier for you to submit designs. Our goal is to make it easier for you and reduce extra communication (so many e-mails!). The changes include:
- Updated template links on the submission pages!
- Updated specs for noobs (and a few of you veterans)!
- A complete color selection (goodbye cream, hello heathers)!
- No more DocuSign contracts! Simply check a box to agree to contract terms when you submit a design (hint: it’s non-exclusive)!
Here’s the deal: We want to be your first choice for selling your artwork so we upgraded the submission experience for you. Huzzah! We told our engineers this would save you (and us) about 3.8 billion emails. Now you can do more things during the initial submission like download the new templates, see updated design specs, choose the right colors, and check a box instead of waiting for a contract! Whee!
Also, going forward, all submissions (including Derby entries) will be non-exclusive. Yep. And before you lose your shirt, royalties are staying the same. Everything you need to know is outlined in the updated artist agreement.
And since we know you’re asking, all your current designs on Woot will remain as they were previously contracted. So if your design was exclusive to Woot, it still is exclusive to Woot. If it was non-exclusive, it still is.
Now let’s unpack this a little bit: We are not making any changes to the Derby rules outside of the artist agreement. This means customers still expect new, never-before-seen-on-the-interwebz artwork in the Derby, but entries are now non-exclusive (check here to see whatLady5tark has to say about the Derby). So keep telling your friends to come vote for your designs in the NEW mobile-friendly Derby!I
