How to Publish a Creator Portfolio

What is a Media Studio creator portfolio?

A creator portfolio is a new discovery surface for Media Studio creators that enables consolidated discovery of all published uploads. In the long run, creator portfolios will be the most impactful bridge between creators and consumers, allowing consumers to consume or queue specific content, follow favorite creators, and leverage other mechanisms that will enable creators to build a presence on the platform.

In the Portfolio Editor, you will be able to create and publish a portfolio and customize your profile image, description, and website link. You will also be able to select a Featured media item, i.e. the large media item displayed at the top of the portfolio webpage.

You can also delete your portfolio at any time by hitting the Delete Portfolio button at the bottom of the Edit Creator Portfolio page.

Creating vs Publishing Your Portfolio:

  • When published, your portfolio will be publicly visible to everyone on the web. When unpublished, your portfolio will be visible only to its creator, i.e. you, and, if applicable, the admins and editors of your organization.

To publish your portfolio, you must select a Featured media item. This item must meet the following requirements:

  • must have a Public audience setting (you can choose the audience setting of a media item upon uploading it)
  • must be Published and review-approved

If you don’t yet have an eligible media item, you can still create your portfolio without publishing it. You can view and manage your media items in the Media Studio Library page. For instructions on how to upload a media item, see the following documentation pages:
