If you no longer need your subscription, it’s easy to cancel it. Cancelling stops the recurring payments, but the subscription remains active until it reaches its expiry date. For example, if you purchase a monthly subscription and then choose to cancel it after 15 days, the subscription will remain active until the end of the month period. It’s important that you cancel your subscription at least three days before the renewal date, to avoid being charged for the next billing cycle.

A Team License is suitable for any team of 2 or more artists working for a company or attending an educational institution. It can be scaled up to accommodate hundreds and even thousands of artists with multiple groups, teams, or departments. Contact us for a quote.
Our Team License has been designed specifically to meet the needs of artists working for studios and enrolled in schools, colleges, and universities where immediate access to training is crucial to the success of artists’ skills development.

Each Team License comes with a unique subdomain (e.g. yourcompanyname.thegnomonworkshop.com) and your Team Administrator will have full control over the users, including inviting, assigning, and revoking user access, usage tracking, as well as creating and managing playlists.

Each registered user under the Team License will be given their own unique login, giving them 24/7 access to our video training library, wherever they are in the world, and whatever time of day they wish to brush up on their skills. The Administrator Dashboard also allows the ability to purchase additional “seats” for users as well as run reports.

For a demonstration of how the Administrator Dashboard works, please Contact us and add a note that you would like to see a demo.
We are always happy to discuss your needs and find a solution that works for your budget. Contact us for a quote.

A Team License is valid for 1 year from the date of purchase. If purchasing by credit card, your Team License will auto-renew at the end of each year. You can cancel your Team License at any time, which will stop the auto renewal, and the license will run until the end of the 1-year period already purchased. Team Licenses are not eligible for a refund and a cancelation within the 1-year period will not be eligible for a pro-rated refund.

To manage users within the Team License, the Administrator Dashboard allows you to invite users via email address; once a user accepts their email invitation, the Team Administrator will be able to assign their license “seat,” which will be active immediately upon assignment. The Administrator can also easily revoke access, and monitor what users are watching, as well we create and assign Teams for users to belong to.

The Administrator Dashboard also allows the ability to purchase additional license “seats” for users. Any additional seats that you purchase will be prorated to ensure that all the users under your Team License have access until the original expiry date.

For questions about pricing, please Contact us.

Every 4 months we create new challenge. Winners receive up to 1 Year Gnomon Workshop Subscription.
The winners are chosen based on our judges' personal criteria, however we often award prizes to artists whose CONCEPTS or IDEAS are excellent, regardless of technical execution. While first place awards tend to bias to a combination of concept AND technical merit, we often choose winners who show POTENTIAL. We love to see new artists emerge, and this is a good way to give artists exposure while rewarding them for their talents.
