If you are a professional creator, we invite you to become a member of the Internet Creators Guild.

Your participation and support enable us to represent and educate members as well as the larger creator community. We have worked to make dues as low as possible ($60 per year).

Members include creators from a variety of creative fields, including online video, podcasting, writing, photography, design, music, and visual arts. Our initial projects skew toward online video because that’s what we know best.

If you're an industry professional...

You're not a creator or eligible for membership.

We want to make sure that our members are creators so this can be a place where people are safe to discuss their problems free of platforms, sponsors, networks, and even fans. However, as an industry expert, you can participate in our initiatives by contributing to research projects, creator resources, and events.
