Eligible participants must be members of the Copyright Agency, a non-profit intellectual property royalty distribution organisation, and have retain copyright to images published in either a book, ebook, journal, online journal, magazine, newspaper.
Eligible participants will receive at least $50 if the Copyright Agency can verify the supplied information, and the criteria is met.
The Copyright Agency manages licence fees that allow educational institutions, government, businesses and others to copy and share text and images. It then pays licensing fees back as royalties to writers, artists and publishers.
The organisation is continuing to build a database of copyrighted material, which will assist it with recovering royalties for creators involved. Those who applied last year don’t need to resupply the same information.
Membership is free, and applications will close Friday, December 21.
