Rights and Reproduction Policy

In general, the Blanton approves only scholarly, educational, and non-profit projects for the use of images in the collection. Commercial projects may only be approved if educational or scholarly in nature. We may not be able to fulfill every request due to copyright, or other restrictions. Each request is reviewed on a case-by-case basis. A minimum of 2-week notice is required to process
image requests.

Image Request Fees

The applicant will be notified of applicable fees. Image fees are determined upon the nature of the request, and the applicant’s status as a non-profit or commercial organization. Fulfillment is made for existing images only. If new photography is required, additional fees may apply.
