Free The Bid is an essential resource for supporters of female directors in the advertising industry.
Our database of directors has grown to showcase nearly 400 reels, with new directors added weekly. In the past few months, we have met and talked with so many heads of production and creatives at agencies and brands, who are using the site regularly. In direct response to their feedback, we are beginning a massive upgrade to our site. With these forthcoming updates, visitors to the site will be able to search for directors by specialty and location, allowing interested parties to easily find, establish contact with and ultimately hire the perfect woman for any directing job. Each director profile will feature multiple videos, providing directors and their production companies with the opportunity to showcase their experience, range and versatility.
We’re hoping to put an end to the “we just couldn’t find a woman for the job” excuse – for good!
To continue providing increased visibility for female commercial directors, we need your help!
We are reaching out in the hope that you will support the costs of maintaining our constantly expanding database, so it can be as useful of a tool as possible in showcasing the work of signed, independent and new directors.
We are asking for individual contributions of $500, $1000 , or a recurring monthly fee amount of $50.
These are just suggestions – feel free to give more (or less, if you must).
Upon receipt of your donation, we’d love to display your logo on our “Who’s In” page as an official supporter of Free The Bid’s cause. A list of materials required to feature your company’s logo will be sent over.
We hope that we can count on your continued support of important female directorial voices and the movement to amplify them as loud as we can!
