Works are either quoted upfront or if the scope of the project is unknown, at an hourly rate. When you commission artwork, you are paying the illustrator for both the time spent and the rights to use the image.
I’m pleased to say Mediart is not VAT registered – so there’s no VAT to pay!
Get in touch, with an outline of your project and I’ll be happy to provide a quote.
Copyright licensing rights affect the value of any work in terms of:
Use, Duration and Territory.
What will it be used for?
Usage examples could be: TV advertising, Journal, website, Intra-premises, Presentation, Online advertising, social media, brochure, posters and billboards, merchandise, packaging or newspaper. The point being, TV advertising rights would incur a different cost to an in-house publication.
How long will the illustration be in circulation?
For example, 6 months, 5 years or indefinitely.
Where is it aimed?
Finally, for example: UK, US, Europe or Global.
In certain circumstances, it can also be agreed that copyright ownership is wholly assigned to yourself.
The ‘Acceptance of Commission & Licensing Agreement’ Mediart uses is lightweight, protects both parties equally and has been developed by the Association of Illustrators.
