    Zealous is great and I would definitely be keen to use it again.  It straightforward and was surprised by the number of entries in such a short space of time. The site is user-friendly and opens doors to artists we would previously be unaware of.

    We’re using Zealous for a second year running. The site is a good way to receive applications, with all the important data we need about the applicants accessible in one place. This makes the decision process much easier and quicker.

    The way the material was presented for me to look at was exemplary.
