How do I claim my IMDb page?

IMDbPro members can claim their IMDb page in order to upload images, demo reels, select your Known For, and set your Featured Images.

To claim your page, please log into your IMDbPro membership from your desktop computer and take the following steps:

1. Click on the small icon next to your name in the top-right corner of the page (or go directly to the claim page):

2. Select the category that describes you best, then your primary profession (i.e. Actress, Director, Production Designer, etc.), and select "Continue". If your primary profession is not listed, or if you prefer to skip this step, please select "Skip this step".

3. "Your professional name" will be pre-populated to search for your IMDb page. If your professional name is different from your account name, please select "Change Name". You should enter the name exactly as it appears on IMDb. Click "Search" and you'll see a list of names matching the text you have entered.

4. If you have an IMDb page, select "Claim Page" to the right of the page in the search results (even if the name is outdated or misspelled -- for additional help, please see: How do I change my name?). 

If you don't already have an IMDb page, select "Create New Page". Before selecting this option, please make sure that you are not already listed on IMDb (i.e. under a different spelling or an old variant of your name), otherwise this will create a duplicate IMDb page.

If you have already claimed a page, but need to start the process over (for example, if you accidentally claimed the wrong page), you can unclaim the page via your Page Controls by selecting "Unclaim this page". WARNING: this will sever the connection between your membership and your claimed name page, and will erase all resume and images uploaded to the page. Use with caution -- once unlinked, this data is not recoverable.
