About Zealous

Our Network

Zealous was founded in 2011 to empower creatives by recommending opportunities based on their portfolios for free and make it easier for organisations to source creative talent for projects, exhibitions, competitions and more.

Our Events

We’ve successfully run two large-scale interdisciplinary festivals (Zealous X). The latest showcased 115+ artists across 7 disciplines at Rich Mix, London, bringing 10,000 people to the space. Zealous also runs bimonthly meetups for the creative community.

Our Founder

Guy Armitage, was Guardian’s Creative Entrepreneur of the Year in 2013, has discussed the world-changing potential of creativity at TEDx and in Forbes; speaks at conferences about the importance of diversity, has won the Tate Digital Art Hackathon in collaboration with Ai Wei-Wei and is a proud trustee of Firstsite in Colchester.

“We are incredibly grateful to Zealous for making our searching & selection process so simple. We look forward to working with Zealous again.”

“I think the platform is great and I would definitely be keen to use it again in the future. I found it very straightforward to use and was surprised by the number of entries we had in such a short space of time.”
