Simplify your
creative submissions

Grow your Impact

Ditch cluttered inboxes, online forms and hours of your time compiling presentations and reports. Streamline submissions, judging & selection; all from one place.

Delight your applicants and judges with beautiful experiences. Zealous keeps everyone up to date and gives you real-time insights into your submissions as they come in.

Invest the days saved on admin into what matters most to you, like marketing your call and supporting your communities.

Get other’s input seamlessly

Inviting others to help with the selection is a great way to increase submissions, engage with your community or share the workloads across your team.

Zealous was built to delight judges and remove the complexities of managing people and gathering their valuable input.

    I cannot thank the Zealous team enough, without them I wouldn’t have found the competition. Zealous made the application process very simple and easy to use and is full of a great variety of work.
  • Jaclyn Bell
    Zealous is great and I would definitely be keen to use it again.  It straightforward and was surprised by the number of entries in such a short space of time. The site is user-friendly and opens doors to artists we would previously be unaware of.

    It’s been a pleasure to work with Zealous. The system is easy to use and intuitive for participants, judges and administrators. The dashboard is clear and allowed me to quickly manage the entire process, especially the final judging.
