DACS Payback launches its 2011 payback on 13th June 2011. The scheme allows visual creatives to claim a share of the £4-million DACS Payback fund. If you’ve had an image of your work published in a British magazine or newspaper, or seen on a TV programme, yet not been paid for it — then applying could get you a DACS cheque. The Payback cash is raised from the annual photocopying and video/TV/DVD duplication licenses paid for by British schools, colleges and universities. Last year the average individual Payback royalty payment to artists was for £295. All claims must be submitted no later than the 9th of September 2011. See the website for full details, from 13th June.
