Hi all. This thread contains details on an upcoming change to the way new AudioJungle authors can access the marketplace. Current audio authors will not be directly affected, but we’re sharing the details here so you are aware of the changes.
From Monday 24 May 2021, we will be pausing our intake of new authors for AudioJungle. If you apply to start a new Envato Author account after this date, you will be unable to upload any new items to AudioJungle.
We are currently reviewing the best way to sustainably bring new authors to AudioJungle, and expect this process to take at least 6 months to complete.
We currently allow any new author to sign up and submit audio items for review. Whilst this allows any aspiring author a chance at becoming published, the volumes of content we see are impacting our review queue, and the average quality of items from new accounts is not where we want it to be. We recognise that this approach is not sustainable, and not in the best interests of AudioJungle in the long term.
We will therefore not accept new authors to AudioJungle from 24 May, and expect to implement a new process for sustainably introducing new authors at a later date.
This is part of a series of changes we are making to improve AudioJungle and respond to feedback from our community. Other related initiatives, such as the introduction of submission limits, are already having an impact by raising the quality of submitted items. We expect that this change to our new author intake will also help to reduce the average waiting time for our audio review queues.
If you have any questions about this change, please add them to this thread - we’ll answer these in batches, and will add them to the FAQ below.
When this change comes into effect on May 24, we’ll update this thread to confirm that the changes are live.
