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

New member applications are currently closed. New applications will be considered from March 2015. Application deadlines for 2015 will be posted here soon.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO

Online application details will be available here soon. In the meantime please look at the About Us section to find out more about our work.

MEETINGS

Meetings generally take place on the second Wednesday of each month. These meetings alternate each month between the Artists’ Agents and Dramatists’ and Directors’ agents. Meetings may be to discuss current industry issues (as suggested by members) or they may take the form of Q&As with relevant industry representatives.

COMMUNICATION

Between meetings, communication is co-ordinated via email and the website so advice and current information is always available. You will also have access to a vast resource library in the Members Area which includes all current standard agreements.

TWO GROUPS

PMA Members divide into two key groups: Artists Agents and Dramatists and Directors Agents.

INTERESTS

In addition there are a number of smaller groups representing a range of interests.
