Sunil Dhillon

"a lot of upcoming MUA's, clothing brands and event organisers have ruined the industry with approaching creatives to work for nothing and it has devalued the industry. since 2018 mainly in the asian fashion and wedding market this has become the norm and its not fair that our hard work spent on location and behind a screen, editing for hours has had a major impact on the atitude of individuals within the industry and it needs to stop. There is no creative (unless your trying to build a portfs"

Chris Bowyer

"It's wrong to expect people to work for free."

Dawid Theron

"Unpaid work shouldn't be an option."

umunna wilson

"I can't please man and unplease myself"

Ron Carroll

"I work across US, Canada and UK. Every time someone works for free, or at a massively reduced rate, they devalue both themselves and the industry."

Ras Verdi

"fed up of people asking for freebies, I have overheads, family and a mortgage. Exposure and social media does not pay for this"

Rainy City (Dan)

"We shouldn't devalue ourselves and our peers. You work hard - you deserve to reap the rewards. Don't ever be afraid to say no!"

Renael Dixon

"It's killing the creative industry"

Aby Wojcik

"Work for a membership organisation that understands the impact of unpaid work on freelancers in the creative industries and the vital importance of paid work."

Neil Wooding

"Support freelancers and ensure fair value is paid for work done!"

Paul Scott

"Fed up of doing work for people then having to fight to get paid"

UnderPinned

"We fully support this cause the furtherment of an agenda of respect for freelancers and their work."

A Designer At Heart

"I have been a freelancer for 5 years and always refused unpaid work. I had to make big life choices to do that, for example moving to China (from Italy) after graduating because it was the only place where I could find a paid internship. I truly believe unpaid work shouldn't be allowed so I'm happy to sign."

Ian Blaza

"I get sick of seeing freelancer websites that let people place job postings for freelancers that end up being lower than the minimum wage, or want a service for free. This has to stop. It devalues the creativity of the talented designers out there and also gives a false representation of how much design is worth."

Robin Walker

"It is unfair that companies take advantage of people, and exploit their eagerness to get ahead by suggesting freelancers do work for free."

Steph Whitr

"Requests by companies expecting to give photography services for free simply for exposure. Or expecting to give images to companies without them paying me a fee or even a hint at a website/social media credit - giving them free promotion of their business with zero compensation for mine."

Claire Murray

"Professionals who have relevant experience and training in any field should be paid for work undertaken. No exceptions."

Curran Music Creation LTD

"I feel very strongly about this subject. Why is it accepted that freelancers or companies in creative industries should expected to work for free?"

Abbie Lawton

"dont agree with unpaid work"

Social Republic

"Social Republic was created as a “new way”, an alternative to the traditional agencies. A network of freelancers that brings experience, flexibility and value to brand social media strategies and campaigns. An approach that enables the right people to be brought together on the right jobs, whilst providing and promoting creative and person-centred working for freelancers across the globe. Above all we believe in equality, respect and support for freelancers."

RHIANNON Evans-Young

"If people are working, they should be paid for it. Simple!"

Sol Maya

"No One Should Work For Free"

Roy

"Hiring Freelancers"

NSE Media

"Appreciate the movement"

Alessandra Boeri

"This happens way too often. I just experienced it again this week with an agency and client. I finished a project early because I was quick to edit(I was booked on a day rate with them) and yet, they only want to pay me half because I finished early. This is unacceptable. We don't get work fast for free, we work hard because we have the skills to deliver quickly."

Remedy Hair And Beauty

"Free don’t pay bills!"

Tonje Brattås

"Leading an campaign #jointheRIOT "Why are creative freelancers still under-paid and under-valued? It's time for change. It's time to RIOT. This summer we shine a light on creatives' visions on how this industry SHOULD be - and we would love to hear from YOU. Send your photo to anna@timetoriot.com or post your own photo with the hashtag §jointheRIOT to share your vision. Check us out on www.timetoriot.com"

Justin Buehler

"I've been burned too many times submitting proposals and not getting paid for my ideas contained in the proposals."

Kieran jay johnson director @IAM CASTINGS

"As I believe in paying people for their time, skill and support. I have worked for free myself over my journey becoming a casting director. During this time I was told this was essential if I wanted to get ahead!! Which I now see as free labour. I also see that this culture leaves a certain demographic out and reduces opportunities, as they are not able to work for free to better themselves."

Simon Kristall

"With 20 years experience and having worked for some top blue chip brands, I’ve still been approached to cary our free work, it’s not been recently however. It’s nothing short of exploitation, and creates a false economy for the industry in question. Especially when those that ask are sometimes doing very well indeed."

Richard Myers

"We support hundreds of startups every year, including many freelancers, and far too many times we've seen them do free work on the promise of bigger work down the line. Business doesn't work that way. Do you know anyone who has taken their car to a garage to ask for a free service because they may want 4 new tyres and an exhaust in the future? Nope. #nofreework"

Paul Dwyer

"I support students in gaining freelance work at the University of Westminster"

Angel Marinov

"The creative industry is like any other and free work should be allowed."

BECTU

"We've been campaigning against exploitation in the creative sectors for decades and supporting staff and freelancers who experience this. Well done on launching this campaign; we hope it will identify a will amongst policy makers to strengthen the law and the resources available for enforcement in support of new entrants in particular."

Dominique De-Light

"I believe all freelancers should be paid to ensure everyone has access to work opportunities. For a thriving creative economy it is important for diverse groups of people to have equal access to freelance work. At Creative Future we support under represented artists and writers, the #nofreework campaign reflects our vision of a more equal society and that's why we support this campaign."

Chaire Grace

"Too many Virtual Assistants undervalue themselves by either completing free work or offering their services for an unrealistically low rate. We want to sign up the to campaign in support of change to improve standards."

Elisha Miller

"I have undertaken many projects with the offer of 'Exposure' as payment, and not a single one of them has led to any further work or as claimed, worthwhile exposure. All it has done is taken time away from actively promoting my business and gaining paid work."

COSTCLEVER Ltd

"Hard working people deserve respect and financial reward as well!"

Model Code Agency

"Sick of being asked to work for free"

Hannah Martin

"I believe everyone deserves fair pay for good work. As a freelancer I would never work for free on the promise of some future hope of work or other recompense. And as a business owner, I employ skilled freelancers and pay their quoted rates without haggling."

Hotcourses

"The #NOFREEWORK campaign aligns perfectly with our beliefs that talent and hard work should be recognised and rewarded."

Francois Boutemy

"I believe industry professionals should be paid for their work to survive and thrive in their chosen career. Constant offers to create unpaid work for portfolio purposes only devalues the work of the individual. When you're at the supermarket checkout, you never haggle the price on the bill! Why does this happen with freelancers?"

WebEmployed

"We support Freelancer's rights to paid work."

Frame Perfect Management

"This is our job not a hobby and we should be paid for our skills, creativity , time and effort."

Adam Edgell-Bush

"We are a startup that benefits from using freelancers. We want them to be able to live and thrive providing their invaluable services to companies such as ours."

Kelly Gilmour-Grassam

"We believe that all work has a value!"

Coconut

"Everyone should have the same opportunity to follow their passion and prove their value. Therefore everyone should be paid a fair amount for work they do, with no exceptions."

karim Diomande

"I want to support #NOFREEWORK and for freelancers to have the opportuinty to earn a living"

Maik Jansen

"Any one working, should get a fair payment for that."

Zoe Green

"If we work for free we devalue the creative industry for everyone"

The Quick Brown Fox Video Production

"By posting or applying to unpaid work, people undermine seasoned professionals and possibly cause them to lose out on paid work."

Merité Media

"Because we are expected to provide expert quality services so should always be adequately compensated."

Mulroys

"We're fully behind the #NOFREEWORK campaign and support all the freelancers who work for us. Keep up the right work."

Katy Pollard

"I believe strongly in this campaign"
