Dear CANVAS creators,
Due to the current global situation surrounding COVID-19 and the hardships many creators are facing as a result, we will be extending the current 100% net ad revenue support for CANVAS creators through the end of 2020, with the final 100% net ad revenue payout happening January 2021 for December revenue.
This has been a difficult time, and we want to say thank you so much to the CANVAS community of creators and readers for continuing to support each other. Whether it be through episode comments, engaging on social media, or simply subscribing to new series, we have witnessed an increase in community sentiment despite everything going on, and it has been so inspiring to see.
We are aiming to distribute two million dollars to CANVAS creators in 2020, and hope to distribute even more with the 100% net ad revenue support extension. Overall, we’ve seen a 43% increase in the ad revenue shared to creators year over year, and we are working hard to continue growing that number.
There are now over 70,000 creators and 90,000 series on CANVAS. As the platform grows, our support for creators must continue to grow. To make the CANVAS platform more user-friendly for both creators and readers, we will roll out a new monetization program scheduled to launch later this year!
We have seen many new creators on the CANVAS platform thanks to the Short Story Contest (which is still open for submissions until June 30th), and hope to see many of you stick around! We are also so excited about the CANVAS platform launching in Spanish, and hope to continue bringing creators and readers more language options as time goes on. If you are a Spanish creator, there will be a contest hosted on the Spanish platform from July 1st - September 28th, and you can find more information on it here!
This is a pretty long notice packed with a lot of information, so thanks a lot for reading it all, and thank you so much for being part of WEBTOON CANVAS!
The CANVAS Team
We will be continuing our 100% net ad revenue support for CANVAS creators through the month of May (June payout) and will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated via this notice page.
To our CANVAS creators,
