Welcome to the Artists' Bill of Rights Campaign


Be sure to check out the latest News!

The Artists' Bill of Rights campaign promotes the adoption of a set of ethical standards for competitions and appeals to which creative works are submitted, for example, photographs, music, film, illustrations, graphic design and literary pieces such as stories and poems. We focus on copyright issues and how they affect everyone who enjoys creative pursuits.

If you are a member of the public and don't understand copyright, that you are already the owner of copyrights that other organisations would like to acquire from you, and try to by various means which you may not be aware of, then this website is for you.

Whether you are a member of the public who has passion for creativity and enjoys competitions, a creative professional, an artist, or an organisation wishing to adopt a set of ethical standards for the treatment of intellectual property rights in competitions, there is guidance and information here for all.

We review competitions and appeals seeking creative content, listing those that respect your copyright and moral rights, highlighting those that don't and what will happen to your rights if you submit work to them.

If the Artists' Bill of Rights Campaign is new to you, then we suggest you start with the Introduction to the Bill of Rights then follow the links that interest. We hope you enjoy your visit and if you have any queries please contact us.

Many organisations worldwide have proclaimed their support for the Artists' Bill of Rights and we are delighted to present them to you in the content scroller below. You can also view them at your leisure on the supporter's page. Your organisation can be promoted here, please contact us for further information.
