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.
