How it works Career development through Radar
One of Radar’s key goals is to help creatives achieve more career success and to ultimately make a living from their creative work
We identify rising talent and bring them to the attention of world-class agents, reps, production companies, commissioners & journalists
We do this via promoting commissioned work, via the annual Radar Awards, and via applying ‘recommended’ status to rising talent
Recommended creatives access higher value briefs which are sometimes only open to ‘recommendeds’.
They build connections with more powerful commissioners
Also, commissioners can search by ‘recommended’ when they’re browsing creatives.
More commissioners put them into their ‘likes’ lists
The criteria for recommended status is in FAQs.
If you have work at that standard, but no curator proof, you can also ask us to assess your portfolio for recommended status.
What if your work isn’t at that quality standard yet?
Make more and better work, it’s the only way! There’s plenty of briefs from great labels, management companies and artists open to all creatives on Radar. There’s also blog posts to help you promote your completed work
What if you’re pitching for work but not getting commissions?
If you’ve had a paying account for 6 months and pitched at least 10 times, we guarantee to give you private & bespoke coaching on where you can improve your game, free of charge.
Does any of this actually work?
Yes. There are many Radar creatives who have gone on to greater and sometimes amazing things, often as a result of exciting or high-profile work they’ve managed to make through Radar, or through coming to prominence in the Radar Awards. A lot of their stories are in the blog
