Content
Guidelines

  • Wix is looking for stunning, top quality content. Each brief comes with specific content guidelines. Here are our general content guidelines:
     

  • Read our briefs carefully and view the example videos/photos.
     

  • Because some videos/photos will be used as visual background (see examples below), try to avoid creating videos/photos that are busy with elements and effects.
     

  • Keep in mind that our videos/photos need to be generic enough for many types of websites:

  1. Try to avoid including faces in your edits.

  2. Don’t use identifiable brands, trade names or trademarks.

  3. Think diversity: gender, ethnicity, age etc.
     

  • Video/photo authenticity is very important. Make sure that the videos/photos capture a real life scene and look as natural as possible.
     

  • We’re all equally beautiful. No need to use professional models  on set.
     

  • It’s always a good idea to look through the Wix Media Manager and better understand what visual assets already exist, as well as the kind of content and the quality we’re looking for.
     

  • Make sure you obtain appropriate releases from people who appear in the videos/photos or from property owners whose property  appears in the video/photo. 
     

  • Images and videos displayed on this page are for illustration purposes only and may not be copied or imitated. All rights reserved by the respective image or video owners.
     

  • Make sure you obtain appropriate releases for your videos or images.
     

  • Make sure no trademarks or logos are visible in your videos or images.
