Payback 2003 - Claim Your Share! - If you have had photos published in magazines or books you may be entititled to revenue.
Calling all painters, photographers, animation artists, craftspeople, architects, illustrators, sculptors, cartoonists and designers... If you're a visual artist, and your work has been reproduced in books, magazines or journals, or used in television programmes, you may have a valid claim for Payback 2003.
Payback is an opportunity for visual artists to claim a share of copyright revenue. This money is generated through various schemes where copyright is collectively licensed.
This year, almost a £million is available for visual artists and photographers to claim via Payback 2003.
While this may sound technical, all you really need to know is where and when
your work appeared in publications or on television. So what are you waiting
for? It's Payback time.
