ABOUT US

We are the leading professional body for talent agencies in the UK.

The PMA is a membership organisation for agents who represent actors, writers and directors. It was set up over 60 years ago with the intention of encouraging good practice among agents by encouraging better communication between agents and better communciation from agents to the industry.

The PMA does not provide advice about finding an agent. If you are looking for an agent you will need to contact individual agencies directly. You may find our list of member agencies useful – available to download at the bottom of this page.

JOIN THE PMA

As a member you will part of a unique network of over
170 agencies in the UK

THE PMA NETWORK ONLINE

Advice and current information is always available on the members’ email forum. You will also have access to a vast resource library in the Members Area online which includes current standard agreements.

PMA MEETINGS AND EVENTS

PMA members meet every month (alternating between Artists’ Agents and Dramatists’ and Directors’ Agents). Meetings may be to discuss current industry issues or they may take the form of Q&As with relevant industry representatives. In addition to the monthly meetings there are a number of smaller work groups representing a wide range of specific interests and current issues.
