How do I know what type of sponsorship I am looking at?
The type of sponsorship will be listed below the brand image in the feed, as well as in the brief.



How do I see more information about the sponsorship?

To learn more about the sponsorship opportunity tap on the image and scroll through the brief. The brief will include information such as payment, donations, creative instructions and required platforms.

How do I accept or decline a sponsorship?
Tap on the sponsorship in the feed and you will see an 'Accept' and 'Decline' button in the brief. Make your decision, and tap the corresponding option.



The brand requested changes to my submission, now what?

Occasionally, a brand will request changes on your content. This usually happens when an image doesn't follow the brief or meet the brands requirements, and means you have an opportunity to upload a new piece of content.

To view the changes they have requested, tap “Tap to Post” in the Me tab.  When you are ready to resubmit your new content, you can submit it there as well.

Please note that brands usually allow 3-7 business days for new content to be submitted before the submission will be declined. 



Why was my content declined?

Very rarely, content will be declined from an offer. This happens when our team feels that the content submitted is unoriginal, offensive, does not attempt to follow the brief or when there is no social account connected to review your profile.



My Create & Submit content was approved, now what?

Approved content from Create & Submit sponsorships may be used by WeAre8 or the brand for marketing purposes including social accounts, websites, internal/external decks and etc. If your content is posted across social, we do our best to ensure that you are tagged however, this is not always the case.



How do I complete my sponsorship?

To complete a sponsorship, follow all steps in the brief on the app. Completed sponsorships will be marked at 'Completed' in the Me tab, and funds will appear as incoming in the Payment tab.
