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.

Renaissance Photography Prize

renaissance2011-smallThe Renaissance Photography Prize is an international photography competition which raises money to support younger women with breast cancer. Fiona Gifford, a lawyer with a passion for photography, founded the competition in 2007 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 34 and is delighted that, four years on, it has become an established fixture in the photography world.

By entering, you get the chance to have your work judged by some of the top names in photography, be exhibited in the prestigious Mall Galleries in the heart of London and win over £8,000 ($12,000) worth of prizes. But you’ll also be donating to breast cancer as all of your entry fee is donated to the Lavender Trust at Breast Cancer Care. Renaissance is run entirely by volunteers. Every penny goes to charity. Everyone gives their time and expertise for free which has allowed us to raise over £90,000 so far. Follow at  facebook-icon linkedin-icon
