Bid Black



Sydni Chustz is an associate producer at Saatchi & Saatchi LA with a vision to support Black talent in Los Angeles. In her spare time, Sydni has hustled to build Bid Black, a non-profit platform representing over 200 creators. Sydni was inspired to start Bid Black after finding herself to often be the only Black person working on creative teams. She set out to fix this problem by creating a platform for Black talent to show their work, build their portfolios and connect with creative opportunities. Bid Black formally launched in 2018 with the mission to normalize the presence of black talent across the entertainment and film industry. Over the last two years, the platform has grown in popularity. Bid Black is now the largest, curated database of vetted Black talent in the media industry, featuring creators from around the world. Join the movement by using Bid Black for your next creative project! Other ways to support the mission:

  • Sponsorships
  • Donations
  • Collaborate with Bid Black on educational programming
  • Talent referrals
