When you request an image of an artwork for reproduction purposes, you must agree to our conditions. It is your responsibility to get permission from the holder of copyright to reproduce the work/s of art. We will need proof of that permission before we can supply you with the image requested.
Terms and conditions for image reproduction
Permission to reproduce from these images or transparencies is dependent on the full acceptance of these conditions, and is automatically revoked if any part is infringed.
In most cases the artist (creator), or their nominated copyright holder owns the copyright on a work of art for life, and for up to 70 years after death. Applicants are required to obtain permission from the holder of copyright to reproduce the works of art. The Gallery will not supply an image until written proof of copyright permission has been given. The Gallery will not be held responsible for any breach of copyright. In some cases, the Gallery may be able to provide contact details for copyright holders.
One use only
Permission is given for one time use only. This permission applies only to the publication specified by the applicant. Application in writing must be lodged for any other publication, including reprints, revisions and translations. Subsequently the image may not be reproduced onto computer CD ROM or used for Internet applications without prior written permission from the Gallery.
Using the image
- The complete artwork, being the painted area of a picture or the area within a sculpture or object, may not be cropped, overprinted nor in any way altered or defaced without prior written approval from the Director of the Gallery.
- Reproduction of the work must not be larger than the size of the original work, unless approved in writing by the Director of the Gallery.
- Caption information is supplied by the Gallery, and must always accompany a reproduction.
- A final colour proof must be submitted to the Gallery for the checking of reproduction format and quality, including colour fidelity, before final printing commences.
- One copy of the final product must be supplied for Gallery records.
One user only
Permission, when granted, is personal to the applicant and may not be assigned, transferred or sublet in the event of the publication lapsing or not coming to fruition within six months of the date of this approval, in which instance a fresh application will be required.
Returning the image
The transparency/photograph/slide/disk must be returned to Bendigo Art Gallery within three months of receiving this application, or a full replacement fee will be charged.
The fee for this request will be determined upon receipt of application.
