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.

Simon Larbalestier Photography

SimonLarbalestierSimon Larbalestier is a photographer based in Bangkok, Thailand since 2001. Noted for his collaborative work with Vaughan Oliver and the design studios 23 Envelope and v23, he provided the photography used on album artwork for the bands Pixies, Red House Painters, Heidi Berry and others on the 4AD label.

Much of the pair’s collaborative work is featured in Vaughan Oliver: Visceral Pleasures. His work includes magazine covers for New Scientist and book covers for Random House and Secker & Warburg, featuring his distinctive collage style that he first developed at college. Larbalestier has had many solo and group exhibitions in Britain, Europe, Scandinavia and USA. During the 1990s and 2000s he produced several landscape series in Italy, USA and Australia and several recent documentary series in Thailand, Cambodia and other areas of South East Asia. A recent documentary series shot in Angkor Wat and Siem Reap deals strongly with the human condition through portraits and atmospheric images of vacant rooms and landscapes, with details of possessions revealing how people live. In 2009 Larbalestier and Oliver collaborated again on a limited edition box set re-issue of Pixies recordings, Minotaur, that included a 72 page book of new photography and graphics. In April 2010, Snap Galleries, Piccadilly, London housed a major retrospective of Larbalestier’s Pixies archive dating from 1986-2009. Follow at facebook-icon twitter-icon
