Welcome to the Artists' Bill of Rights Campaign


Be sure to check out the latest News!

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

If you are a member of the public and don't understand copyright, that you are already the owner of copyrights that other organisations would like to acquire from you, and try to by various means which you may not be aware of, then this website is for you.

Whether you are a member of the public who has passion for creativity and enjoys competitions, a creative professional, an artist, or an organisation wishing to adopt a set of ethical standards for the treatment of intellectual property rights in competitions, there is guidance and information here for all.

We review competitions and appeals seeking creative content, listing those that respect your copyright and moral rights, highlighting those that don't and what will happen to your rights if you submit work to them.

If the Artists' Bill of Rights Campaign is new to you, then we suggest you start with the Introduction to the Bill of Rights then follow the links that interest. We hope you enjoy your visit and if you have any queries please contact us.

The Equality Trust


The Equality Trust seeks to reduce income inequality, in order to build a better society for all. We are an independent, evidence based organisation that educates and informs the public about the harm income inequality creates in all our lives. The gap between rich and poor is entrenched and this is bad for everyone, even the wealthier people in society.

Our aim is to build a mass movement for social change. We do this by generating and supporting grassroots activity led by local groups throughout the UK, by promoting robust and evidence based arguments on equality in the media, and by engaging with decision makers and opinion formers.

A change in mindset is desperately needed to address the social ills in our society. If the country as a whole is more equal then we all do better across most social indicators - from improving mental health to reducing teenage pregnancy and from enhancing educational attainment to cutting crime rates.

It is vital that we take action. The ramifications of inequality are substantial and new thinking is required to make our lives the best they can be. Follow at facebook-icon twitter-icon
