Introduction

Whoa! You clicked! I didn’t think anyone read these. Still, this document contains legal information and it’s important. Check it out and email us at dudes@globalstreetart.com if you have questions – we’ll build an FAQ as we go along. 

Firstly: your security. If you’re an artist or photographer and you’re worried about your data then be safe – whatever that means to you. We won’t share your data - we’ll email you our newsletter (if you sign up) and we’ll be in touch if think we could work with you (“Hey, you’re art is amazing, can we make a print with you?”). That’s why we asked you to tick the boxes if you’re interested in different commercial opportunities. 

However, I can’t promise that one day we won’t be raided by the police. It does happen to sites where there are graffiti writers in the community.

Terms and Conditions for Licensing

Global Street Art is a platform that connects photographers with the street artists whose work they document, such that both parties benefit when street art photographs are licensed by third parties. 

We (the people at Global Street Art) started this platform because we discovered that some photo-licensing agencies were licensing graffiti and street art photographs but the original street artists were not being compensated. 

We thought that either these photo-licensing agencies were not sure how to connect with street artists or were unwilling to put in the effort to do so (licensing street art and graffiti photos was too small a part of their business).

We also realized that graffiti and street art address many different subject matters and finding the right images is often difficult for people who want to license images. We built a classification system to make things easier. 

If you’d like to submit content to Global Street Art, we accept photographs of street art and graffiti. We will also accept photographs / scans of canvases, illustrations, prints and sketches or other ‘’indoor’’ work from artists who also work outside. All content must be submitted without watermarks. Global Street Art may place a lower bound on the accepted image resolution. Please submit photos that are more than 1 MB in size; typically photos taken with smart phones are not accepted for the time being. 

Please note that not all submissions can be accepted into the Global Street Art archive. All content is reviewed before it is accepted. Photographs are typically rejected if the photo quality is low (low resolution, poor lighting, photo taken at an extreme angle) or if the art work isn’t deemed strong enough. We cannot accept all submissions because a significant amount of effort is required to classify content. 

How Does it Work?

All photos accepted by Global Street Art (where you have opted to allow licensing) can be immediately licensed for books and editorial functions (newspapers, magazines, etc.). If you submit photos to Global Street Art, you’re agreeing that images may be immediately licensed for all editorial purposes (books, magazines, newspapers, websites). 

We made the decision to operate this way because there are already companies out there that are licensing street art photographs for books and editorial without artist consent. 

Content will not be licensed to third parties for any uses than publications and editorial uses without the prior consent of the photographer and the street artist.
 
Once an Artist has registered with the Global Street Art website, they can claim that their artwork is the subject matter of a photograph. Artists can choose to license their images for uses beyond publications and editorial. 

Global Street Art may license Content directly or through selected partner agencies. 

Gross billings (see Section 7 (b) ) from the sale of Content licensed automatically through the Global Street Art website are split as follows (see below for more details): 
  • 50% Global Street Art 
  • 50% to Artist who is also Photographer
  • 25% to the Photographer who is not the Artist, with 25% to the Artist in that case (i.e. unlike all other licensing agencies, if you are the original street artist you can still earn money from another photographer's photos).
Where Global Street Art licenses Content for uses that require Artist consent, the split of Gross Billings may differ from the split presented above. Any changes to the split will be agreed upon by Global Street Art, the Contributor(s) and the Artist(s) in writing prior to the release of licensed Content to a Licensor. 

In cases where the Contributor and Artist are the same person (i.e. the artist has taken a photo of their own art work), they are entitled to 50% of gross billings from image license sales. 

In cases where the location is the subject of the photograph, and not any specific piece of artwork, the Contributor is entitled to the Photographer’s and Artist’s share. A so-called ‘location’ type photograph is judged to be such at the sole discretion of Global Street Art. At the time of writing ‘location’ photographs represented roughly 1% of total photographs in the Global Street Art archive.

The date on which you accept this agreement shall become the ‘’Effective Date’’. This agreement is between GSA, and you, The Contributor.
