Yeah it's extremely dissapointing, I have been with this platform for over 7 years, since the odesk times, over 400k earned and over 11,000 hours worked...


Curious to know who actually was in charge of picking the freelancers, cause most of the veterans were left out.

Marketing is all about using the right images, not using the images from freelancers that are successful.

I would select a cross section of gender and ethnic groups.

I would only select photos that looked professional.


If I were working on the campaign, it would be all about the images that support my message.

It doesn't matter who was on the screen. Nobody will remember the faces and the names anyway. What matters is the exposure it gives to Upwork and the name of the company being displayed on Time Square.

Wow.. congrats Upwork. I watched few videos (there are 18 I think), but couldn't find myself. I may not have been featured I think. Anyway best of luck to all those who were featured. I have few queries
1) Is 18 videos all or they are going to add few more?
2) Did anyone recieve mail so far from Upwork saying they have been featured in the campaign?

Hi Christina, I was wondering if they inform you in the email that you were featured in the video campaign?

Been a contractor since 2008 (oDesk; 10+ years) but never got an email to have a chance to get featured anywhere. Smiley Sad
