Copyright and architectural photography

Unless otherwise agreed, architectural photographers own the copyright of their images and control their use and reproduction. The Copyright Council has two detailed information sheets: Photographers & Copyright  and Photographs: Copying Photos You've Paid For. A Guide to Copyright, Commissioning & Publishing Architectural Photography is also available. For further information, refer: Australian Institute of Professional Photography.

Use of images submitted in the National Architecture Awards program

The Australian Institute of Architects may use images submitted in the National Architecture Awards program for the purposes of promoting architecture and the Australian architectural profession. When commissioning architectural photography for use in the National Architecture Awards program ensure you negotiate appropriate usage rights with your photographer for third party use by the Institute. Please refer to the above resources for further information regarding photography usage rights and licences or visit the National Architecture Awards website for the Awards program’s terms and conditions.
