How can I submit additional verification for a credit submission?

When a submitted filmography update doesn't show up within the normal time-frame, this usually means that we have not been able to verify it; in this situation, the best way to ensure that it is accepted is to supply additional supporting evidence. 

Providing Credited Evidence

If you are looking to add a fully credited position to a released title, typically evidence will consists of a screen grab/capture showing the person's name and credit as it appears in the main or end titles of the film or show. 

Instructions on how to do so are below:

  1. Upload these screen-grabs of your name listed in the end credits on the Web where we can access it and make a note of the links/URLs pointing to it. The information must be publicly accessible on the web, so do not upload anything you are not comfortable sharing

  2. Find your original submission in your update history at Update History

  3. Verify that all the data is still valid. If you need to update/amend the information, you can do so and resubmit the entry.

  4. Make a note of the update reference number (it's the number composed of three groups of 6 digits separated by dashes, i.e. 160227-090001-134000)

  5. Go to our public online support community at GetSatisfaction (if you don't already have an account you will be asked to register) .

  6. Add a new question and post the screen grab as an image along with the update reference number for the corresponding submission. You can also enter any additional information, comment or feedback. The more data/evidence you supply, the better. 

  7. Submit the form.


Providing uncredited/unreleased Evidence

If you are not listed in the end credits or the title is unreleased - other verification may include proof of employment (pay stubs or receipts, call sheets, contracts) showing that the person worked on the production, or mentions of the person's role on the production in media articles from reputable third party sources etc. In these instances the credit may be eligible for addition. If the title has been released, we will include the attribute of (uncredited) to reflect your name was not mentioned in the end credit sequence - for more information on this attribute, please see here.

Here are the steps:

  1. Upload these screen-grabs or data somewhere on the Web where we can access it and make a note of the links/URLs pointing to it. Please note that the information must be publicly accessible on the web, so do not upload anything you are not comfortable sharing.

  2. Find your original submission in your update history at Update History.

  3. Verify that all the data is still valid. If you need to update/amend the information, you can do so and resubmit the entry.

  4. Make a note of the update reference number (it's the number composed of three groups of 6 digits separated by dashes, i.e. 160227-090001-134000).

  5. Go to the Contact Form and select 'IMDb Fan/Contributor Questions -> Filmography Credits --> Provide Credit Evidence' .

  6. Select "E-mail" and fill in the form with all the information requested. At least one link is mandatory. If you have more than three, use the 'comment' field to add them.

  7. Enter any additional information, comment or feedback in the 'comment' field. The more data/evidence you supply, the better.

  8. Submit the form.


Our editors will review the evidence you provide and confirm if it is sufficient for the information to be added.
