Talent submission

We are a well established Talent agency with offices around the world. Why are our Talent submissions being declined, even when we have been managing an artists for many years?

Hi ronmowlam -

If you are having trouble getting your clients approved, I encourage you to resubmit the client information including any verifiable evidence links within the Explanation field of the submission form, such as: media articles referencing the representation, official website of the performer referencing the representation, etc.

Once resubmitted with further evidence, our editors will then take another look. 

Cheers!

The Celebrity Group represents many artists arranging for them to appear in multipe TV commercials, press advertising and more recently posting endorsements on social media. We have been in this industry since 1975 but have never been asked for "evidence" of the Talent we represent. Do you require the same evidence from CAA or WME? If so, we would be delighted to do the same. Our history can be seen here: www.celebrity.co.uk/history 

Can you provide an example of the type of contract you require us to submit as many of our contracts only exist in the form of Emails or endorsement contracts which may run to 15 pages.?

Thank you for your assistance.

for advertising and endorsements only

Basically adding credits and info to IMDb is relatively easy (well, apart from the somewhat complicated submission form) if you’ve proof/links/sources. Usually the best proof is simply a screenshot of the credits. Since usually films and TV productions are added.

Perhaps you should give an example what type of productions (and credits) are you trying to add? If it’s a film or a TV series, just include screenshots of the credits when you submit the credit to IMDb (and maybe some links if available).

Biographies, personal trivia, photos, showreels, videos and ”PR material” can be a different thing, of course. Meaning the info/material that are there to mainly a ”promote” the actor in question.

Thank you for your answer. However our category on IMDb is "Talent Agency - Commercial" which means we only represent Talent for commercial work such as advertising and endorsements, mainly TV commercials. All of the Talent we represent are well-known and will have appeared in movies, documentaries, shows and written books, but possibly never appeared in a TV commercial, which they would now like to do. Some of them have no contact details whatsoever on IMDb but our contact details are still being declined, even though we may have worked with them for years.
