Information we need

We'll need the following details to process your licence:

  • name of the artist

How the price is calculated

Reproductions on the cover of a newspaper generally command a higher price than those reproduced as part of the editorial.

A charge is made per reproduction. Prices stated exclude VAT. Where appropriate, discounts may be available when a large number of works are licensed for a project.

Our fees are set irrespective of the size of the reproduction and whether it is reproduced in colour or black and white.

We do not charge for works used in newspapers under fair dealing for the purposes of reporting a current event, in accordance with Section 30 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (as amended).

All prices are correct at the time of publication and are subject to change. Our members reserve the right to override our standard fees.

We review our licensing prices annually. This allows us to keep in-touch with changes in the industry and technological advances, so we can create relevant and robust licences that benefit both our customers and artists.

Should any price changes affect your industry, we shall notify you at least 14 days in advance.
