Licensing FAQ
Q: How does FBFA promote and sell my work?
Each project is different—different environment, different budget and different design direction. Our in-house design team works directly with our clients to propose images from our artists that meets their needs and fits their vision. Once an image is selected, we apply it to one of our mediums and deliver it directly to the client.

In addition to proposing our artists’ work to our clients around the world, we also curate monthly collections of images that are featured in our newsletter, on our blog, and on our website. Each month we highlight one of our artists whose work we feel is outstanding, and this artist will receive their own collection and featurette on our newsletter, blog and website.
Q: How long do I have to wait before I hear back from FBFA?
Our artwork review panel meets on a quarterly basis. You can expect a response within 4 -6 weeks.
Q: What content do you want to see?
We want to see carefully considered content that will work for hospitality, corporate or healthcare spaces. Generally, portraiture, overly processed photography and artwork that feels dark or desolate does not fit well in these environments.

We often seek specific genres of artwork and regional content. To learn about these opportunities, subscribe to our newsletter where the Collections PDF contains image ‘call-outs’.
Q: How much can I make selling my work with FBFA?
For each sale, FBFA pays the artist a commission (a percentage of the gross revenue, dependent on product type). The payment schedule is outlined in our licensing agreement, along with examples of revenues.
Q: Do I have to sign a contract?
Yes, more information about our exclusive artist license agreement will be provided if you are selected to become a contributing artist.
Q: Does FBFA have a policy regarding Photoshop manipulation?
No. We take an array of artists onboard and we understand that manipulation is another evolving art form for photographers and digital artists. However, we do feel there is a time and a place for it. Our clients commonly request alterations to images, so a heavily manipulated image can often be less salable.
Q: FBFA didn’t accept my work; can you suggest another agency my artwork could be suited to?
There are many agencies focused on different industries and niches. Your style might not be right for one but it may be perfect for another. We will be happy to make suggestions when possible.
