Free money for use of your images

HAVE ANY of your images been published in a book, magazine or on TV? If so, you're likely to be eligible for Payback royalties covering secondary uses of your images, such as photocopying. (This in in addition to other copyright royalties you may have been paid.)

The average payment to artists (including photographers, fine artists, illustrators and cartoonists) who'd signed up the Payback scheme was over £250 last year.

The scheme is administered by the Design and Artists Copyright Society (DACS) - you can register with them and check here which your works would be eligible. You have until 30 September to submit your form online for the current round of Payback. Writers should register with ALCS for the equivalent scheme for payments of secondary uses of their words.
