Prospective Creatives

How do I join Working Not Working as a creative?

There are two ways to become a member: 


The quickest way to join is to be nominated by a current member (creative or company) and then approved by the Membership Board. If you know any WNW members, buy them a beer and then nonchalantly hit them up for a nomination. 


The other way in is to apply. We get thousands of applications this way and each portfolio is vetted by real humans so it can take awhile to get through them. But, at the very least, you’ll be on our radar and be notified about our parties, events, and updates. You can apply here.

Working Not Working is free for creatives. We don’t take any fees or commissions on any work you book through us. WNW was started by creatives and we look after our kind.

How can I change the project images I loaded into my application?

No worries, as long as we have your portfolio URL, we'll be able to review your work there. Our Membership Board places the most emphasis on your portfolio site.

When am I getting accepted? I applied, what's the status?

It can sometimes take awhile. We have thousands of applications/portfolios to review and real humans actually look through every single one. You'll know as soon as we do. Thanks for your patience, and stay tuned!
