Sign up to Adagp

Depending on the area you work in, Adagp can manage all or some of your royalties.

To find out more, go to What Adagp does for you?

To become a member of Adagp, you must be an artist who has created a work of graphic or plastic art or an heir, beneficiary or assignee of a copyright in visual artworks.

You must check what documents are required and send them to us along with the completed application form which can be downloaded from this page. Your membership is effective from receipt of all the documents requested. You will receive a confirmation email with your membership number followed by a membership card which will be posted to you.

Adagp handles the royalties for all your works but does not get involved in contracts you signed prior to signing up for this service or, obviously, when you sell your work to a gallery, private individual or museum.

1. WHETHER YOU’RE AN ARTIST, BENEFICIARY OR ASSIGNEE, FIND OUT WHAT DOCUMENTS YOU NEED TO SEND US TO SIGN UP

If you are an artist

To sign up, simply post us the membership form available for download from this page, completed and signed, along with:

- And in particular for architects : the lists of the potential collaboration works and the sharing of the rights for the copyright holders of these works

If you are an heir or beneficiary

To handle the royalties of a deceased artist, we need a copy of the probate certificate, the order of succession or the certificate of inheritance, established on the death of the artist. If the heirs themselves are deceased, we also need to have officially recorded documents indicating the heirs of the deceased so we have all the succession documents.

To receive their share of royalties, each beneficiary must sign up to Adagp by returning the:
