Creators! Next week, we’ll begin reaching out to people to join our Partner Program.
We wanted to introduce this program early to support creators who are committed to furthering their craft on byte. If this is you, and you want to be in the program, the best thing you can do is keep making great bytes. Anyone and everyone is eligible for the program, even if today is your first day on byte.
Read on for more details on the program.
As a reminder of the structure: Every 120 days we will establish a Partner Pool. Funds will be paid out to creators approximately every 30 days over those four months.
- $250,000 in the first pool
- Up to 100 creators
- Kicks off April 15
For now, creators will need to be based in the US. We are working out how to expand the program to people outside the US and will keep you posted.
What we’re looking for
We want byte to be a home for emerging creators across a range of genres, styles, and communities. We’ll be building out the Partner Program with creators who capture the variety and uniqueness of byte. The start of each Partner Pool will be a fresh opportunity for new voices to be recognized.
We’re looking for creativity, quality, and passion above all else, but here are a few specifics to keep in mind:
- Originality: Your content should showcase your unique voice and be created for byte and the byte community.
- Community participation: Partners should be regular and active participants on byte. This means doing things like consistently posting quality bytes and engaging with others in positive, constructive, and inspiring ways. (See our Community Guidelines for more info.)
- Format — 9:16, non-letterboxed videos: We’re looking for the content that looks best on byte, which means fullscreen without letterboxes.

The Partner Program is an important first step in demonstrating what we mean by supporting creators. And there’s more to come. We really love this community and what we’re building together. Thank you for creating with us.
