Fees for licensing images or creating new digital reproductions of our collections.

As many of our staff are furloughed during the Covid-19 pandemic, we cannot accept any requests for new photography or sourcing additional images. We cannot supply any images other than those that are available on our Digital Media Bank.

Administration charges

If an image has not been already made available for download and re-use a £30 administration fee will apply. This covers staff costs in locating files, checking for image quality and assessing any rights issues in using the image.

Licence fees

These fees apply to images in which Royal Pavilion & Museums Trust owns or manages the copyright. All fees are exclusive of VAT. Extra charges may apply if works in our collection need to be scanned or photographed. Discounts may be given for the use of multiple images from our collection.
