Membership of SIAD is open to all practitioners in all creative disciplines, anywhere in the world.  There are three levels of Membership - Diploma Member (DipSIAD), Member (MSIAD) and Fellow (FSIAD) - which provide a 'professional pathway' as your career develops.  Each level of membership will be recognised worldwide as one of the most prestigious distinctions in the international creative sector.


Application for membership of SIAD is a very simple process, requiring only a completed Application Form together with a selection of examples of your work, submitted electronically (by WeTransfer).  Applications for membership are assessed by a panel of practising professionals, all of whom are Fellows (FSIAD) or Honorary Fellows (HonFSIAD).  A fee of £40 (€45 / US$50) is charged to cover administration of the application process. 


Once elected to membership, an annual membership fee falls due on 1 January of the year following the year in which you first joined SIAD.  Student Members pay £40 (€45 / US$50), Members pay £60 (€65 / US$80) and Fellows pay £80 (€90 / US$100) per year.
