We like to say that we give small artists the three things they need to thrive: money, exposure, and freedom - entirely for free. We think that if we treat people who make content better, the result will be better content. Most websites offer content creators little hope of a meaningful reward if they make something popular, which doesn't give them much reason to make something popular. We will change that. Here's what we do for artists: Money - we operate through competitions, with a paid award at the end, with $500 as the minimum award. Plus, we make money when our artists sell their work, with the artist receiving most of the proceeds. Lastly, we're going to release "Best of" collections, with our artists receiving a share yet again. Exposure - we actively promote our artists in every we can. For example, we release Featured lists, we do official profiles, and we continue promoting people after they've won a competition. Freedom - we're not ad based, so people can put whatever they damn well please into their content. On top of that, in the future we want to crowdsource our content ideas. At the moment we're catering to people who make music and video, but we hope to keep on expanding to any sort of creative career you could name.

Original artists, musicians and video makers have been putting out their creative work since time immemorial but these days it's not the easiest thing to get your work out there and noticed by the general populace. Masspire is a new free application that provides a place where talented and artistic types can get the three things they need more than anything else - money to develop their art, exposure for their work and the freedom to pursue their creative bent.
Only a handful of people in the creative field ever achieve success. It can depend on a mixture of luck, connections, perserverance, marketing ability, and talent. For every one really talented person that gets discovered probably at least five never do and disappear back into their bedrooms. Masspire want to change that by giving small artists the three things they need to thrive: money, exposure, and freedom - entirely for free. The idea being that if one treats people who make content better then the result will be better content. Most websites offer content creators little hope of a meaningful reward if they make something popular which doesn't give them much reason to make something popular but Masspire aims to change that. It operates through competitions with 12 paid awards at the end - US$500 being the minimum award. Its a little like Battle Of The Bands meets a short film competition. It...
