The Open Search - held twice a year in June and December - gives Insiders the opportunity to submit ideas from any product category.
It works just like our sponsor-specific Live Product Searches, except we’ll work with any consumer goods retailer or manufacturer in any mass-appeal category.Learn more about becoming an Insider

The family that fishes, canoes, hunts, travels, camps, hikes and bikes together, stays together.
The Earnhardt family has a long held love of racing, and a love of the outdoor lifestyle.
The Earnhardt siblings – Kerry, Kelley and Dale, Jr. – along with their families, have created Earnhardt Outdoors™, a lifestyle brand designed to pass the traditions and values of the outdoor lifestyle from generation to generation. Earnhardt Outdoors is now searching for new products that they can exclusively develop and bring to market.
Consider ideas that focus on quality, safety and innovative design.
Your ideas should be practical, rugged and designed to last.
They should encourage the whole family to get adventurous in the great outdoors, whether they are simply enjoying nature, hunting, fishing, canoeing, hiking, camping, traveling, riding horses, practicing their hand at photography, or playing with their pets.
Get adventurous and get inventing. The sky is the limit for this outdoors search.
Reward: Advance & Royalties
Licensed ideas will receive a $2,500 minimum advance on 20 years percentage of sales or buyout. We split the licensing royalties 50/50 with you on the products that we select. Royalties vary based upon the product but we always earn industry-leading rates.
We ask for well-communicated ideas. This includes filling out our easy-to-use submission form to the best of your ability.
Upload images, sketches and any other media that support your idea. Tell us your story. We even encourage you to create a video demonstrating your innovation. Don’t worry. We aren’t expecting a big-budget production. Please keep videos to less than 2 minutes.
As always, your submission should be unique and protectable (we love to see patented ideas but that certainly isn’t required).
Each idea costs just $25 to submit. Insiders submit ideas for $20 each with the ability to submit them into other searches for free.
