Do I retain the copyrights to my art?
Yes! YOU, the artist, will retain all copyrights for your images per the Copyright Act which protects photographers by giving the creator of the photograph the exclusive rights to copy, edit, and distribute the image by sale or transfer.
These exclusive rights make it illegal to copy, scan, edit, or share photographic prints and digital media without the photographer’s permission. Violators of this Federal Law will be subject to its civil and criminal penalties.
Why are images captured from my cell phone able not allowed?
Cell phones today are amazing! However, in most cases, the image quality isn’t high enough when printing a 16×24 or larger.
Can I sell my art elsewhere?
Yes, of course! You retain all rights to your art. Feel free to gain Exposure where you see fit. However, be careful not to split your audience.
Do you sell art other than photography?
No. Here at Photo Art Pavilion, we are all about photography! Our goal is to provide a pure photographic environment for both artists and buyers. Here photographers don’t have to compete with paintings, drawings, and other mixed forms of art.
What kind of files do I need to upload into my Photo Art Pavilion Storefront?
High-quality image files are essential. The image you upload is what will be produced for the buyer. So, we ask for your files to be high resolution; 300 DPI.
All images uploaded should be free of watermarks. But don’t worry, Photo Art Pavilion will protect your artwork on the website with a watermark.
Before uploading, view your images at 100%. Check to make sure that the file isn’t blurry or pixelated. Watch for hot-spots, check to make sure your horizon is level. Imagine if the image were to be printed as 40″ x 60″ what elements within the frame will be an eyesore.
You must be the copyright owner of all the art you upload to Photo Art Pavilion. Photo Art Pavilion is not responsible for any falsely represented artists. If there are any questions about the ownership of the art within your account, then the account will be suspended. The questionable account owner will endure all fines and legal fees that have transpired due to their actions.
Why is the artwork curated on the Photo Art Pavilion website?
The Photo Art Pavilion Team works with artists of ALL levels. Curating art helps to ensure that we provide quality art for the buyers. Plus, we want our artists to know they have a team behind their artwork. Our curators may pick up on the smallest elements that can easily be fixed, or we can help an amateur photographer learn from their oversights by the given feedback.
What factors are used in curating the art?
The Photo Art Pavilion Team reviews all artwork using the following factors: 1.) Clear Center of Interest; 2.) Composition; 3.) Focus and Exposure; 4.) Story; 5.) Lighting; 6.) Creativity and 7.) Uniqueness. Overall, every image stands on its own merit, regardless of the photographer’s experience.
Will I be notified in my photo is declined?
Yes, of course! We will give you a full explanation within your Photo Art Pavilion account as to why the specific image wasn’t accepted. In many instances, the photo can be fixed and re-uploaded.

The account will allow you to set the amount you want to earn per image, or size, or even size and medium. The site will add the production fee, and the amount you want to earn, to get the overall retail price.

I have a few images that I’d like to have at a higher price point?
