Can I design a website via Visura? YES! Sign up to our PRIME membership and you can design up to 3 websites and create a Profile site with a blog featuring your news (which streams to our Community page), projects and single images—both of which are interconnected to our network with access to a message and archive system with privacy settings, a file drop tool and opportunities (open calls, grants, and others). 

Can my website have a custom url domain? YES! Check out the instructions: here

 What is GUILD? Guild is a mentorship program that Prime members can apply for and if accepted they can remain in the program for up to two years.  Every year, Visura will host an annual open call for an opportunity to work directly with Visura's Creative and Editorial Team on the design and edit of your website and work. The selected group will also receive access to editorial and design support as well as career consultations. Additionally, GUILD members become part of Visura's curated archive of members. 

Does the Visura team highlight Standard, PLUS or PRIME members? YES! This is a merit-based platform. When our editorial team searches for work—they look through the Public and Exclusive ARCHIVE to find the best new work and talent—regardless of your membership. 

Is Visura a contest business model? Absolutely not. Visura designs technology tools for its members to brand, market, network and share their work. As a plus—we work really hard to offer our members' career opportunities. WHY? Because they are professionals investing in our industry, and Visura believes that professionals in the ARTS and MEDIA deserve all the support they can to further their work and career. 

Does Visura use grants and open calls to increase our membership? Absolutely not. Visura has not marketed outside of its own social media outlets, website, and newsletter. When individual members or non-members share this information—they do it out of goodwill.


Is Visura exclusive to freelance creatives only? Absolutely not. Visura is an alternative solution that aims to bridge the gap between creators and buyers worldwide. Many visual communicators—including photographers, filmmakers, videographers, journalists, designers, photojournalists, fine artists, and others—are represented by an agency—and they are also welcome to join Visura. All of our members can access tools, resources, and opportunities—to further your work, vision and career.

What is Visura's business model? Visura is a digital membership business. Our focus is on establishing longterm relationships with our members.

What do we offer? Visura offers annual memberships to access online tools like a website builder, a portfolio site with a blog, a networking platform, a curated database, a file drop tool, an archive and messaging system with privacy settings, and an internal open call management & judging system.  

Does Visura charge a finders fee for opportunities that result from the platform?  Visura does not charge a finders fee for any opportunity that results from our platform. Our main mission is to help creatives and buyers connect, efficiently—and in doing so, help them further their work and career, as well as support making a living in the arts and media.
