A new website that brings together people working in the creative sector, and gives businesses, freelancers and jobseekers a chance to showcase their work, has launched for the West of Ireland. MyCreativeEdge is a creative showcase for Europe’s northern edge, and provides those working in the creative sector, including those in or looking to get into the film industry, a platform to showcase and market their work.
The website allows users to create profile pages where they can display slideshows of images and videos of their work. These are then marketed and advertised to international buyers, and can be browsed by those looking for a creative service or to employ someone from the creative industries. Members will also have access to the member’s area and forums where you will have opportunities to connect with businesses and freelancers working in the creative sector across Europe.
The creative sector in the West of Ireland has the potential to generate an estimated €338 million in sales by 2020. Employing around 11,000 people, job numbers have the potential to grow substantially if small creative businesses are supported to increase exports of their creative products and services.
With a section dedicated to Film & Video, MyCreativeEdge provides a platform for filmmakers, producers, studios, actors, media designers and more to showcase their work, advertise their services and connect with likeminded professionals.
