Veer® ‘Dash for Cash’ Gives Contributors Chance to Earn Extra Money

Veer plans to give away hundreds of thousands of dollars for images contributed between May 5 and June 30, 2010

CALGARY (May 5, 2010) – Veer (www.veer.com), a producer and provider of affordable visual elements and design-related products, today announced the Veer® Dash for Cash where image contributors have a chance to earn their share of the hundreds of thousands of dollars that Veer plans to give away to new and existing contributors during the promotion.

The Veer Dash for Cash gives new and existing Veer contributors from most countries worldwide the chance to earn up to $1.40 per approved image submitted between May 5 and June 30, 2010. Contributors from the U.S. and Canada may also participate in the “Bonus Round” to win a $500 cash bonus just by following @veermarketplace on Twitter™ and tweeting about the Veer Dash for Cash. See below for details.

During the Veer Dash for Cash, contributors may submit as many images as they’d like, up to the standard maximum of 100 images per week. Every image that is approved by Veer editors will count towards a contributor’s final tally, and contributors will earn cash for every approved image. After the promotion ends, contributors will continue to earn royalties for every image sale of the approved photography or illustrations.

The Veer Dash for Cash per image cash payment varies depending on whether contributors are new or existing to Veer, and how many total images are approved during the Veer Dash for Cash program.  The more images that contributors submit, the more money they can earn. As contributors have more of their images approved, their per-image-payout increases, up to $1.40 per image. See below for the various payout levels.
