The Torch facilitates licensing of artworks on behalf of artists in The Torch’s program, with 100% of the usage fee going directly to the artist.
Purchasing an artwork does not entitle the buyer rights to reproduce images of the artwork. The copyright for an artwork remains with the artist even when an artwork (painting, print, boomerang, ceramic etc.) is sold.
Admin fee: $120 (government & commercial) / $70 (non-profit)
The Torch charges an administration fee to help cover some of the costs of administering the licensing service (producing an Agreement to License, professional photography costs etc.).
Usage fee: varies according to use
The Usage fee is paid to the artist for the use of artwork.
The Application for License form will help staff to establish an appropriate Usage fee based on:
the nature of the use (commercial/not for profit),
type of use (online/print/merchandise),
quantity (specify quantities of each printed publication etc)
location of the image (front page/ body of publication)
size of the image (whole page/quarter page)
