Newsletter No. 6, 23 June 2010
In the last few days we have made some major changes to the Look and Learn website. In fact there are now two sites:
This change gives the children’s art gallery – which now holds over 57,000 pictures and receives over 2,500 page views per day – its own separate identity.
Your existing log-in will work on both sites but to access the Art Entry Centre you must be on the Look and Learn Art site.
As originally proposed some months ago, we are now offering children’s art for commercial licensing on the basis that half the net income will go to the child and half will be added to the art competitions prize fund. Licence fees vary greatly depending on how the image is used, but typically we would expect a child to receive about £50 (US$75) if one of his/her pictures were used on, say, a commercial greetings card.
Running an educational picture library and being a member of the British Association of Picture Libraries and Agencies means Look and Learn is well-placed to generate income from children’s artwork.
We hope this arrangement will significantly increase the attraction of the children’s art gallery and further our objective of hosting the world’s best gallery of children’s art. For further information, please see the terms and conditions of entry and questions and answers. If you have any questions, please email me.
We recently enhanced the educational picture library with the addition of over 100,000 fine art images provided by Bridgeman Education. The library is still free to browse and send e-cards, but we now charge a small fee of £2 (approx US$3) to download an image for personal or educational use. We are currently adding about 1,000 images to the library every week, so do check back frequently.
Thank you, as always, for your interest and support.
