About our book and our website services


Since our formation in 1998 we've been helping voiceover artists get work and market themselves. If you're interested in finding out about the voiceover industry, or you are active in the industry but looking for advice or marketing, then we encourage you to consider purchasing our paperback book "The Voiceover Handbook".

It aims to answer many common questions that voice artists have in the industry today, 135 questions including:

  • Is it worth me having my own studio?
  • How do I cost up corporate jobs?
  • How do I get my foot in the door?
  • What should I put on my demo?
  • What is FTP and how can I use it?
  • How do I mark up a script?
  • What's involved in setting up an ISDN facility?
  • How can I improve my sight reading?
  • Can I learn character voices?
  • How can I set up a phone-patch facility?

Our book is currently available for puchase online here.
The Voiceover Handbook Book cover
For Established Voiceover Artists

Marketing yourself by being featured on Voiceovers.co.uk 205 GBP + VAT (246 GBP) (setup fee, then 80 GBP +VAT (96 GBP) annual fee in subsequent years)

Successful applicants will be added to the search engine on our front page. This will link to a profile web site created for you, which includes a description of your voice, previous clients, booking information and availability, together with your demo audio.

We have grown to be one of the biggest sites of our kind in the UK, and we get a high number of applications to join us. Please bear with us and we will process your application as quickly as possible. We reserve the right to refuse applications as we see fit - we don't believe in taking money from people unless we think the site will work for them. It's always good to highlight your uniqueness, for example; you don't live in London, you have an interesting native accent etc.
Please familiarise yourself with our website and our voiceover profile pages to see how everything works. Your profile page has it's own direct web address.
If you choose to expose your own direct contact details, producers can obtain quotes and book you direct. This means that we do not need to get involved in the bookings and as such will not take a commission or add a booking fee.
Our fees have recently been reviewed, and provide excellent value for money compared to advertising rates in other key industry resources. Please note that VAT (20%) will be added to these fees. We charge a setup fee of 205 GBP + VAT and a 80 GBP + VAT annual fee which is payable from the first anniversary onwards. This is an annual recurring fee and only becomes payable after your application has been approved and you have been placed online.
You will draw visitors to your demos and profile page through our popular search engine, which itself benefits from great search placement and our proactive marketing of the website facility to producers.

To keep your website content fresh, the textual content of your website can be updated by yourself at any time using your web browser and a password provided to you.
Please note that an Established Voiceovers.co.uk subscription is only appropriate for those voiceovers who are established in the industry and have valid experience from a variety of companies and producers. Your showreel should include a selection of authentic client reads and should not contain any reads which mention company names if they are not genuine previous clients.

It normally takes around 3 weeks to process an application. Please note: we reserve the right to accept/reject applications as we deem appropriate.


To apply, please fill out our "Voiceover Demo Submission Form" which is available here
(Right-click and "Save Target As..." to store it to your hard drive).



Related Question: How many samples can I have?

The webpage limit is currently 4. Your sample limit on search engine results is currently 15.



Related Question: How do you define the term "established voiceover artist"?

If you are an established actor, radio presenter, newsreader, then we don't really classify you as an "established voiceover artist". As an established voiceover artist you should be getting almost daily work reading voiceover scripts from a variety of clients. You should also have a professionally recorded demo which contains "real" work, no mention of company or brand names unless the work was actually undertaken. You must have access to reliable professional studio facilities and generally be available for voice work (i.e. not have another full time job).



Representation / Voice Artist Management Normally 15% cut

For the majority of voiceover artists, this is not normally feasible.
However we do "manage" a very small number of artists, and tend to grow this list by one or two voices a year. If you have a unique skill or characteristic then please send us your demo or contact us, wherever you are based in the world. We are also interested in voiceovers who have diverse backgrounds, interesting accents and from minority groups.
We have found that quite a few artists have used their exposure on Voiceovers.co.uk to gain themselves an agent which is also an option.

To apply, please fill out our "Voiceover Demo Submission Form" which is available here

For Aspiring Voices

An Introduction to the Voiceover Industry FREE (electronic version)

Although the industry is very competitive, there is still need for new voices.
We have a free factsheet which introduces you to the voiceover industry; please email us if you'd like a copy and we'll send one over in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format. Please allow a few days for us to process this email.
Your email address will be stored by us so we can send you any future updates to this guide or information specific to aspiring voiceover artists.



Featuring Yourself In Our New Talent (Aspiring Voices) Section 155 GBP + VAT (186 GBP) (setup fee, then 55 GBP + VAT (66 GBP) annual fee in subsequent years)

If you have a great voice, perhaps with some voiceover experience already, then get your showreel together and get yourself heard!
The voiceover industry can be very competitive and difficult to break into and the New Talent section is a place where you, as an aspiring voiceover artist, can exhibit your demo audio. Experience of "new talent" artists on our site vary from those who have just produced their first audio demo and are yet to do their first real session, to those who have experience in voiceover work but are still establishing themselves or their audio portfolio. Some voices have extensive experience in a related industry, such as acting or radio presentation.
Please familiarise yourself with our website and our voiceover profile pages to see how everything works.
The New Talent section is ideally suited to those who already have some voiceover, acting or radio presentation experience. Your profile page allows you to specify how you can be booked, details your studio facilities, availability, voice description, location and your picture, if desired.
Producers can find you and book you direct via your personalized web page (with an address of the form www.voiceovers.co.uk/first.lastname). Your showreel will be encoded into mp3 format (maximum length 4 x 3 minutes). Your page will also be accessible from our New Talent section of the web site. You can update the textual content on your page yourself using your browser and the password provided to you, so you can keep your details up to date.
This is a very competitive industry and voices who have their own professional recording facilties will be at an advantage. It normally takes around 3 weeks to process an application. Please note: we reserve the right to accept/reject applications as we deem appropriate.

To apply, please fill out our "Voiceover Demo Submission Form" which is available here
(Right-click and "Save Target As..." to store it to your hard drive).



Related Question: If I sign up as an aspiring artist, can I move to the "established" section at a later date?

Only if you qualify as an "established artist". See definition above. We have a special application form for this which you can submit with an updated demo. There are no guarantees and we reserve the right to reject applications as we see fit.
