Complying with copyright law

When posting images to the Art Portal you must comply with Copyright law.

For example, you cannot publish images or video that are protected by copyright unless you have permission, have taken the image yourself, or sourced an image that is licensed under an open licence such as Creative Commons.

Unauthorized use and/or duplication of copyrighted material without express and written permission from the author and/or owner is strictly prohibited. Excerpts and links may be used, provided that full and clear credit is given to the author/owner with appropriate and specific direction to the original content.

We would like all posts on the Art Portal to have an image so that the site remains highly visual. We encourage you, where possible, to use your own images or to find copyright free images. Visit the copyright section for information about how to source copyright free images.

Need help finding public domain images?

There are a number of online resources for public domain images.

These images can be used without attribution, unlike many Creative Commons licenses, which require attribution and may restrict the uses of the artefact.

If you can’t find the right copyright free image, we have created a bank of copyright free images that can be used, where appropriate, in your post. When making a post, click Add Media and search for Stock Image.
