How it works

A world of video content is created everyday, but few creators are compensated for their work. Since 2017, Kapwing has supported content creators through our online image, video, and GIF editing platform. We started The Kapwing Creators Fund to give real dollars back to the creators who are helping us build the future of online video editing.

  • 30 winners will receive a prize of US $500.
  • All applicants are entered into a giveaway for a lifetime Kapwing Pro subscription.
  • Application deadline is July 26, 2021 at 11:59 pm Pacific Time
  • Any creator age 13+ years old can apply. Full rules here.
  • The prizes for this fund come from our Youtube Channel revenue.
  • The more YouTube revenue we earn, the more money we can give away. Support our channel and the Kapwing Creators Fund by subscribing, liking, and commenting on our videos.

    If you have any questions about the application process or the fund itself, please don't hesitate to reach out. Our goal is to help creators and reinvest our Youtube channel earnings directly back into creators in our audience.

    We’re putting 100% of the revenue we earn on our Youtube Channel into this fund. When we monetized our channel in April 2020, we did it with the intention of giving away the money we earned. We started out donating our YouTube revenue to a different non-profit each month but then realized: why not give money to creators? And that's how the Kapwing Creators Fund was born.

    Help us give away more money to creators by subscribing to our Youtube Channel, liking, and commenting on our videos! The more support we get on our channel through video engagement and subscriptions, the more YouTube revenue we earn, and the more money we can give away through the fund.
