As a freelancer I worked on a big project for an agency and produced a couple (big) pieces of work for it. BUT no credit for awards. 🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️

Put it on your portfolio anyway

I'd contact the CDs you worked with, ecd or cco. If they don't do crap, I'd contact the CEO.

Sadly, this is common and has happened to me also. There’s a weird stigma around including non-salaried folks. But I definitely put the work in my book

That sucks. Agree with ACD1. Personally, I always make sure the right folks get credit.

I have never done freelance work and was given the opportunity to take part in a cool project. My problem is it’s a proactive case by a brand new agency and it’s their own project, meaning there’s no client who pays for the work. For them it’s PR for their new business, but I think they’re expecting me to work completely pro bono. It does have potential for a great case and I’d love to have it in my portfolio, but is it reasonable for them not to compensate me? Any tips on how to approach this?

I just listened to an interview of a creative director recount their path towards copywriting at a famous ad agency. It could not have been a more textbook case of failing upwards as a white man.

It would seem the only thing you need to make it as an advertising creative is to have lots of not particularly original ideas. Practically every other skill is unnecessary. If you’re a white man.

That this level of mediocrity passes for talent explains why so many agency briefs are so lame.
