    Zealous is more sophisticated than other platforms we have used and very user friendly. I was surprised by how automatic it is notifying and updating judges, as well as those who have applied. The competition was a success in what has been a very tight timeframe. Thank you for all the help you've given us along the way.

The right talent in very little time

With tight timelines it was important for Capcon’s process to be as efficient as possible.

  • Automated emails kept candidates, judges, and the organisation updated at each step of the process. Allowing Capcon to focus on what mattered most to them – marketing their initiatives and choosing the right talent for their commission.
  • Zealous supported Capcon’s own marketing efforts by recommending their opportunity to our growing network of multidisciplinary creators.
  • Judging online, allowed the selection of talent to be made remotely during COVID.
