Education Creators is an exciting new program within Canva that allows teachers around the world to create, publish, and earn from their designs in Canva.
We launched the BETA program in June 2020 and we are now starting to build our marketplace with quality teacher resource templates.
Template design is unique because you are making a design that someone else will then adapt for their own needs. You will need to make templates that are usable and customizable.
Your templates go through a review process to test their usability, but don’t worry we have resources to help you with this process!
By joining our Creator community, you’ll meet like-minded creatives designing all kinds of templates. We have a community group exclusively for teachers where you can bounce ideas and inspiration off each other!
You’ll have the opportunity to engage in valuable discussions, share inspiration and participate in upskilling opportunities.
We are currently accepting applications from:
Do note that there is a verification process in place as part of the onboarding.
Not at the moment. In this early stage of the program, we are looking to onboard certified educators.
If you are keen to publish & earn from non-educational templates, check out Canva Creators.
In this early stage, we are looking to onboard educators with design skills. Hence, to maximize your chances of getting selected for our beta program, we encourage you to submit your best work/designs in your application.
Education Creators is a niche under the Canva Creators program. Currently, an Education Creator is only allowed to publish education-related templates. In contrast, Creators that are not part of Education Creators are not allowed to publish education-related templates.
Creators are paid via a royalty model. Each month, a percentage of the total Canva Pro revenue is allotted for the royalty pool. How much a Creator receives from this royalty pool will depend on how many Pro template exports they have. More Pro templates export (relative to the number of overall usages) means more shares from the royalty pool.
Creators may also get paid for select Free template usages.
As Canva Pro grows, so does the royalty pool. This also means that more successful Pro templates allow us to pay more royalties to Creators.
We will share more information on monetization after you are onboarded as an Education Creator.
We’ll review your application and get in touch via e-mail if you’re accepted into the beta program.
Kindly note that we are currently experimenting with Education Creators with a small group of early adopters. Hence, it may take up to a couple of months to be signed on as an Education Creator.
We will be onboarding more users to the program gradually in the coming months.
