Welcome to the Artists' Bill of Rights Campaign

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

If you do not understand the copyright and have questions about the language you read in various terms and conditions, then this website is for you. We offer guidance and information for all.


Our Annual Fundraising Appeal

ABoR logo with textWe are grateful to all who have supported our principles for protecting artists’ rights. Our Rights On list has garnered many, many thousands of views, as has our Rights Off list. We promote fair competitions and spread informative news on social media related to artists’ rights issues.

In 2019 we look forward to being able to continue promoting our principles in any way we can. However, marshaling the resources to do this work, and to expand our reach and effectiveness, is challenging.

Would you please consider a donation to help us promote artists’ rights? Your contribution would be greatly appreciated.

We need you and hope you need us.

Who We Are

bill_of_rights_logoWe are Bill of Rights Supporters, organisations from around the world united by a belief that artists' intellectual property rights are to be respected. We believe everyone is an artist, each with the capacity to create an expressive work, a painting, photograph, poem, video, music, story and many other forms of expression. They all have value which is why the law grants each and everyone of us with exclusive rights to control how our works may be used.

Each organisation listed here has committed to supporting the aims of Bill of Rights for Artists, a set of ethical principles for the treatment of your rights. The Bill of Rights principles apply particularly to competitions seeking creative content, however, it can and is applied generally to other activities requiring the submission of creative content, such as appeals.

Further information about the Bill of Rights for Artists' campaign aims can be read in the Introduction to the Bill of Rights for Artists.
