We want you to weave your personal story, photos, and/or videos into a blog post and/or social media post based on a writing prompt that we provide.

Utilizing AI in Creating Content

Creators should be aware of the opportunities and drawbacks that come with AI-generated content and subsequently utilize the AI works responsibly.


Considerations for Creators to Be Aware of:

·      AI is not infallible. In addition to factual inaccuracies, resulting AI works may reflect bias or discriminatory language. Always be sure to check the copy and ensure it is reflective of your voice, your writing style, and most importantly, your beliefs.

·      As documented by the U.S. Copyright Office, there is no copyright protection for works created by AI. What this means is that any work generated by AI cannot be copyrighted. It would be considered unethical to declare yourself the artist of an AI work and monetize it in any way.

·      AI programs may infringe on pre-existing copyright by generating outputs that resemble existing works.


When it comes to utilizing AI in creating sponsored content, Sway’s position is to do so responsibly and transparently. More specifically, we recommend that creators:


·      Disclose the use of AI at the end of article or post. Example: This blog post was created by Jane Smith with the assistance of ChatGPT.

·      Ensure any resulting AI work is original and does not infringe on any third-party rights or copyright, especially if using AI to create a ‘voice’ or sound.

·      Exercise discretion when sharing potentially confidential brand information. As a first step, creators must ask themselves the question, “Did I agree not to share any brand information as part of this campaign?” before uploading or sharing details into an AI tool.


Creators should never use AI to:

·      Impersonate someone else, passing off another person’s identity as your own.

·      Misrepresent yourself, a situation, a location, and/or another person’s likeness.

·      Create misleading information about a product or a product’s efficacy.


As AI continues to evolve, Sway will revisit this topic and update its policy as necessary.
