Creatively, the top job platform for visionaries will launch a new annual grant program for creators – CreativelyMade.
Founded early in the pandemic, the brand’s mission is to champion the creative community and help creatives find work. In just over a year, more than 250k creatives have signed up for Creatively, and 2,000+ brands use the platform to discover and hire creative talent.
Creatively is committed to nurturing a community that truly reflects the diversity across the full spectrum of the creative world, in particular Black and Brown creatives who are often underserved. Two-thirds of the creatives on the job platform identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color.
The program will support and elevate breakthrough talent on Creatively through mentorship, unique connections, and exclusive grants.
With the creator economy booming and every company imaginable focused on hiring creative talent, the demand for qualified, professional creatives has never been higher - and in turn, the competition to find and secure qualified creative talent has also skyrocketed.
Through the launch of CreativelyMade, Creatively reinforces its position as a powerful force in the creative landscape with a mission to help professional creatives find work and get paid.
Kicking off today, Wednesday, February 2nd, CreativelyMade will award grants of up to $5,000, mentorship, and networking opportunities for selected creatives, giving the incredible talent on its platform even more tools to succeed.
Here’s how it works:
Build out your portfolio on Creatively and submit your creative work by March 2 by tagging @creativelymade as a collaborator in any working concepts or treatments.
Answer a few short survey questions about your work and your ambitions via email.
Our CreativelyMade judging panel selects one or more awards winners.
Creatively hand-selected a panel of trailblazers and creative industry leaders across a range of industries to review the submissions and award the grant recipients, including:
Ari Halper, Global Head of Creative Excellence, R/GA (Brand Innovation)
Dollie S. Bishop, President of Black Effect Podcast Network, Charlamagne Tha God’s company (TV + Events Production)
Kameron Mack, Director of Original Content, Westbrook Media (Production + Film)
The company is looking for creative proposals from talented creatives in the Creatively community. The proposals should have a clear vision of what the creative would want to use the grant money for, and ultimately how the grant money and Creatively can help enable them to make their vision a reality. Project submissions can be from any creative discipline listed on the Creatively platform, inclusive of but not limited to photography, film, animation, digital art, 3D art, illustration, and live productions. For more information about submission requirements, please visit creatively.life/creativelymade.
Submissions will be accepted from February 2 through March 2, with the winners announced in mid-March.
