These schedules are intended as information sources for visual and media artists as well as for the diverse users of their art works. Their aim is to help artists improve their annual income through reasonable payments of their royalties and professional fees by institutions, businesses or individuals using their works or retaining their services. The rates presented in these schedules are minimums.
The IMAA Fee Schedule for 2019 recommends fees for screenings and audio presentations, educational use of media art works, exhibitions, professional fees and print reproduction of film/video stills. This fee schedule was unanimously approved by IMAA membership on May 2, 2017 at the AGM.
After multiple consultations spanning over more than a year with a committee composed of artist centres, distributors and artists, a Media Arts Fee Schedule was established to guide artists, curators and organizations in minimum fee recommendations. This was following a request made by the community at the Conseil québécois en arts médiatiques’ conference in 2012.
