Here's an overview of what's covered under a visual arts licence.
What kinds of artwork are covered?
When do organisations need a licence?
- Promotion: If they plan to use an image of an artwork to promote an auction. Including posters, brochures, catalogues or online
- Advertising: When they are creating advertising that incorporates or even references a work of art.
- Products: When they want to incorporate an artwork into the design of a product that will be sold or used to promote a business
- We won't licence your work for advertising or product uses without seeking your permission in advance.
Pricing and charges
We are a not for profit organisation and don't charge artists a membership fee. Instead, we deduct a flat rate of 20% from all licensing transactions, to cover our running costs. The remaining 80% is paid directly to the artist.
You're in good hands.
We have been working with New Zealand authors and creatives in the publishing industry for over 25 years and we're excited to be able to offer the same licensing management services to visual artists. Read more about us here >>
