Rules for Submitting Content Pages
The articles section is where we house various articles that are intended to be helpful and educational in nature. They can be in many forms:
- PDF- Adobe’s Portable Document Format
- Downloadable white paper – PDF, MS Word, XLS
- Web page- Created within the user interface
- Video- embed link from network like YouTube, Vimeo, etc.
We also accept articles written by an authorized Ezine Articles Experts.
Articles can be written by various members of the Hub specifically for hub members and visitors. If you would like to submit an article for the articles section, please make sure that it is not a copy of any other written piece from anywhere else on the internet. You will need a free membership to do so. We pride ourselves on having totally original content that people have not read somewhere else.
Images submitted to the gallery must be of the highest quality possible. The hub can provide a photographer to take the photo of the art or performance/event. In the case where this is not possible, an assessment of the image supplied will take place. Possibly image editing may come into play before allowance into the gallery.
For artists that want the option to make available and/or sell high resolution prints, the submission size of jpeg file may need to be as high as 50 mb or larger. Some files may need to be as large as 100 mb if someone wants to print something bigger.
Recommended Pricing Is As Follows:
For high resolution images for prints, a download of the file is suggested. Again, the price can be what the artist determines. The artist can negotiate with the hub how much of the proceeds go to charity and the hub. The standard is usually 55% to the artist, 25% to the hub, 10% to the photographer and 10% to the charitable cause. These percentages are suggestions based on experience.
Artists will receive funds only after sales are made. This payment model provides zero risk and is provided on a “Pay for Performance” basis. In other words, commission-only. The artist does not pre-pay for any service in any way.
The Print License Agreement
A buyer purchases one license per print. There are no multiple print options for licensing. Although we cannot stop people from copying a print, the quality and degradation will be diminished significantly.If there is an attempt to enlarge the copy the quality will further diminish. Printers will be instructed to only allow one print per license, but to ensure that the printer adheres to rules, we will have a recommended printer as an option to ensure the license is not violated.
Example Print License
I <your name> hereby grant to <buyer’s name> permission to print photos purchased for printing on <today’s date> .
Date: _________________ Signature: _____________________
Although the print license is a suggested price of $19.95, regardless of print size, it is up to the buyer to determine what print size they ultimately want. We do not make that distinction.
If hub members decide to base print size on the license amount, they will have that option. They will just need to know that their sales will only reflect what the market will bare. The buyer still has to pay for printing as well as any framing work on top of the license.
