means to gain financially from your work and prevents others from copying it.
Your work for the exhibition must not be copied from other peoples work or their photos.
Copyright exists as soon as your work is completed and lasts for your lifetime plus seventy years. It is a good idea to sign your picture, date it and mark it with ©, the international symbol.
If your artwork is created in the course of employment, your employer would be the copyright owner.
