RETURN 2016 – Artists Claim Your Share
The Irish Visual Artists Rights Organisation (IVARO) is pleased to announce the launch of Return 2016. RETURN is an annual service which distributes royalties to visual creators whose works have been reproduced in books & magazines published in Ireland. RETURN will open for claims on September 22nd and creators have until October 21st to make their claim.
How it works
Claimants provide examples of what books or magazines their work has featured in. We then pay them a share of licensing fees we’ve collected for photocopies and scans of publications.
Claims can be made by completing an online application form at www.ivaro.ie/return
Artists who applied successfully for RETURN in previous years you can apply this year for all of the same publications once again and add any new publications to their claim. While royalty payments can vary year to year, everyone who makes a successful claim is guaranteed a minimum payment.
