A weekly celebration of the best new work on Creatively.
CreativelyMade is a weekly showcase of the best new work on Creatively—and you choose the winning projects! Each week, our community posts new creative projects, votes for their favorites, and champions the most exciting new work on the platform. Weekly winners earn badges, bragging rights, and top visibility to companies and brands looking to hire creative talent.
Here’s how it works:
- Each week, members of the Creatively community have the opportunity to vote for their favorite new projects that were added to the platform during that week. Eligible projects will feature a CreativelyMade badge and vote count on the project’s cover tile.
- As the week progresses, projects rise and fall on the leaderboard based on the votes of the Creatively community.
- The CreativelyMade leaderboard resets Sundays at 11:59pm ET, at which point the top three projects become our weekly winners!
- Each week, we’ll showcase the CreativelyMade winners on social @hellocreatively and to the top brands on Creatively.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s):
Which projects are eligible for CreativelyMade?
CreativelyMade is open to any and all members of the Creatively community.
Can I opt out of being a part of the weekly leaderboard?
At present, all projects submitted each week are automatically eligible to be featured on the CreativelyMade weekly leaderboard. If you have a concern about one of your projects being featured, please reach out to us at email@example.com.
How are the weekly winning projects chosen?
Each week’s CreativelyMade contest closes on Sunday 11:59pm ET, at which point the top three projects on the CreativelyMade leaderboard are automatically the weekly winners, unless any project is disqualified from consideration based on Creatively’s community guidelines and terms. Every “vote” your project receives helps elevate it to the top of the weekly leaderboard!
Do I still own my CreativelyMade submissions?
Of course! We believe creatives should retain the rights to their own work, and you have sole ownership and copyright to any work you upload on Creatively.
How can I help my project rise up the CreativelyMade leaderboard?
Every “vote” helps your project rise in the rankings, so share a link to our project with others or give it a boost on social media to encourage your friends and colleagues to give your project more votes on Creatively.
What happens if I’m in a different time zone and I post a project on Sunday after the period ends?
Each week’s CreativelyMade contest closes on Sunday 11:59pm ET, so if you post a new project after that time, you will be automatically entered into the following (current) week’s contest.
How can I tell where my project ranks?
If you navigate to your project page, you’ll see a CreativelyMade banner at the top of the page if the project is in contention for this week. In the banner, you’ll see whether your project is currently ranked within the top projects, and if you tap the “Share” icon, you’ll also be able to see how many votes you’ll need to rise to the first position on the weekly leaderboard. If your project is currently ranked in the top projects, you’ll also be able to see it on the CreativelyMade leaderboard!
How many projects can I submit to CreativelyMade each week?
As many as you’d like! Just add a new project to your Creatively portfolio, and that project will be entered into contention for that week’s CreativelyMade.
Can I resubmit the same CreativelyMade project another week if I don’t win?
Only new projects published to Creatively each week are eligible for CreativelyMade, so you’re not able to re-submit an existing project for consideration. That said, if you’ve updated one of your projects to the extent that it’s now fundamentally different, we encourage you to publish a new project featuring that new work!
What if I collaborated with another creative and/or brand on a project that’s currently in contention for CreativelyMade?
Collaboration and giving credit for creative work is at the heart of Creatively, and we encourage you to ensure all collaborators and brands are given proper credit for their work on any creative projects on our platform. In spotlighting and celebrating our weekly winners, we will strive to credit any collaborators where possible
