How it works

Zivity is a creative, smart and sexy art patronage community of models, artists and backers.

Artists get paid by backers on the site. Backers have the option to vote on any set. Voting is a lot like Favoriting or Liking something on other sites, except for one key difference: votes are a buck each, with 55% for the model and 30% for the photographer. More votes means more money for the artists, which means more delightful photos for everyone! For backers, voting is a way to express their preferences, show their appreciation, and empower their favorite artists to keep creating.

Oh, but there's more: is there a photo set you've always wanted to see, but never have? Make it happen here! Anyone on Zivity can up a cash prize for a photo set centered around the theme of their dreams: vampires vs. robots, elves gone wild(e), stuffed animal Jello wrestling – whatever you can imagine. Artists submit photo sets based on your prompt, and the prize creator chooses the winner. Who knew being a patron of the arts was so much fun? Take a look at some of the current prizes.

"To me, Zivity is all about community. I love how members can interact freely and feel safe and proud about sharing their work and words in this space. Of course I also can't ignore the abundance of creativity! Vive l'art!"
