How and when do I get paid?

If you recently won a contest (congratulations!), you will enter the sound handover stage. This is where you transfer the copyright for the sound to the contest holder, and upload the original source files.

Once you have done that, the contest holder will confirm they have received what they expect, and we’ll credit the prize to your account.

Once you have received the confirmation, the prize will be surrendered to you via PayPal or by Western Union. You can then deposit this money into your own account or allow it to remain in PayPal. This can take up to 10-15 business days (not including public holidays or weekends), depending on the payment method you choose.
