To entrust copyright experts with the negotiating, managing and billing of your rights. To uphold your copyrights!
By completing the membership form and attaching an ID and a bank account number. You may join for all or part of your royalties.
ADAGP guides you in your artistic career, also offering support for creation, professional advice, neworking, etc…
ADAGP represents more than 200,000 artists worldwide, in more than 40 artistic fields.
As an artist, you can choose which rights you wish to transfer to ADAGP: primary rights, resale right, and at least collective rights.
You will benefit from the expertise of 60 employees to effectively enforce your rights.
They monitor the use of works of art and collect fair compensation for the artists or the rights-holders.
Two possible contracts to manage your rights
ADAGP can liaise with any art user who wishes to reproduce, exhibit or broadcast images of your works on any media (print, websites, TV...). If you join ADAGP as an "All rights" member, ADAGP will manage all your reproduction and communication rights for you.
If these rights are already covered by a contract (publishing contract, contract with a photo agency...) or if you wish to negotiate them yourself, you can choose to join ADAGP to manage your collective rights and resale right only.
