What are the benefits of having an Agency Listing on Models.com?

The Models.com database is a collaborative portfolio site dedicated to promoting the discovery of new talent in the fashion industry. Work is continually uploaded by creative agencies and professionals who then credit the respective talent, making it the most up-to-date and accurate resource for anyone wanting to keep up with the industry.

This is why clients, casting directors, creative directors, and creative agencies use Models.com daily to search for talent, including models and artists.

For modeling or creative talent agencies, a listing in the Models.com Database makes it easier for clients to contact your agency when they are interested in booking one of your talent.

For production and advertising/creative agencies, a listing allows agencies to get credited for work they produced, making it easier for potential clients to discover them when they are looking for production or advertising services agencies.

Listed agencies are credited on their talent’s pages, and automatically whenever any of their artists is mentioned in the news and Models.com Original features, as the best point of contact under the names of your artists and models.

Your agency listing itself can display a list of all your talent, contact information and links to your social media.

As a listed agency, your staff will be granted access to add new work (as well as edit existing work) in the MDC Database. Creative talent agencies are given access to hide their artist’s credit from work as well.

Please note that becoming a participating agency does not guarantee inclusion in Models.com original editorial content or the model rankings.

Contact agencyrelations@models.com or use our contact form, to learn more about the features certain listing tiers provide.

How can I change the Featured Images on my agency’s listing?

Agencies can choose to display on their Models.com profile page either:
– a set of featured images from the Models.com database
– or the agency’s Instagram feed.

To switch your agency’s listing to display an Instagram feed or your choice of featured images from the database to display, email our team to have this feature enabled.

To rearrange or remove a Featured Image:

1. Go to www.models.com/account
2. On the left hand panel, click Featured Images. (If this option is not there, it is because your login is not yet linked to your agency. Email someone from our team to have this fixed.)
3. Click and drag to rearrange these images
4. Click the Red X next to the image to remove it from the listing.

To add a Featured Image to your agency’s listing:

1. Use the search bar to navigate to a work you would like to feature
2. Under any image in the database, you can click [+ ADD TO PROFILE PAGE]

(If this option is not there, it is because your login is not yet linked to your agency. Email someone from our team to have this fixed.)

How do I remove my artist’s credit from a database entry?

If you are an agent at a listed creative talent agency, you have the ability to hide your artist’s credit on specific work so it no longer appears on their page.

Note: Make sure you are signed into a membership with database access at models.com/account. If you do not have database access, email support@models.com from your official agency email for further instructions.

1. Navigate directly to the work you would like to hide from your artist’s page.

2. Click EDIT THIS WORK

3. Click EDIT to change the crew credits

4. Click one of the small green icons next to your artist’s name to hide their credit (they will turn orange when hidden). You have the option to hide their credit completely, or to only hide the work from their page but leave their credit visible elsewhere.

How do I add a profile picture to my artist/model’s page?

If you are a listed artist agency, make sure you are logged into models.com/account.
Navigate to your artist’s MDC page.
Click CHANGE PROFILE PICTURE under their main image on the left.
Please note: This image goes uncredited. Please only upload images you have the rights to and can go without a photographer credit.

If you are a listed modeling agency, please email models.com for instructions on how to upload a recent polaroid to your agency’s polaroid page. Once the polaroid is uploaded by you, we can designate it as the model’s profile picture.
