Licensing

What does licensing a photo mean?

A licensed photo can be used for:
Commercial purposes like an advertisement or a campaign
Editorial purposes like newspaper and magazine articles, blog posts, and other written commentaries which gives visual context to a story.

 

What are all the licensing options on Africa Knows?

We have three license types: 

Royalty-Free (RF) Our royalty-free licenses are worldwide, with unlimited print and/or online impressions, any-media usage with no expiry or seat limit. Once the photo is licensed by the buyer, they can use it as many times as they want and they do not incur any added costs.

Products for Resale (Extended License) Enhanced license grant which includes the ability to incorporate the image into print or electronic products for resale or distribution (including templates and on-demand products) provided that such a product: a) combines the Image with words and/or other graphics or images; or b) the Image is not the primary factor driving the sale of such product.

Rights Managed (RM) Our Rights Managed licenses are limited to the specific use, medium, period of time, print run, placement, size of content, and territory selected. The photo can only be used for the specified use prescribed when purchasing it. A desire to increase usage will require another license to be purchased.
