Comping is Usage!

We ask you to remember that many designers, artists and illustrators may not want to have their images used in any way, including in agency presentations. Any use, including comping, implies value that is worth compensation.

    Images within the Guild Portfolio Area are for Web browser viewing only.
    Any unauthorized downloading or duplication of images is prohibited by copyright law.
    Use of the images, including comp usage, must be negotiated with the creator of the image prior to any use.

Art or photography in portfolios submitted for a job should not be copied for any use, including client presentation or "comping," without the creator's permission. Similarly, images appearing in any of the talent sourcebooks and directories (either in print or electronically), should not be "swiped" for any reason. In case after case, the creator's property rights have been upheld, and those caught engaging in these practices were penalized, paying large fines to the artists.

Contact the creator before copying. The Guild Supports Ask First
