Ever listened to a radio station and the deejay happens to play your favorite song on the radio? You sing or dance along to the tune and when the music stops, you don’t get enough of it and want to download it. Only thing is, you’re asked to purchase it since it isn’t free. You wonder how a radio station gets to play it for free but you can’t download it without paying for it. Well, it has something to do with an artist release form that’s being signed between the station and the label.
Our Sample Forms for artist release will help guide users on the correct draft when making artist release forms. Depending on the uses, these can be altered or modified for specifications after downloading.

The National Geographic Society (NGS) is one of the largest nonprofit scientific and educational organizations that promotes scientific, environmental, and historical consciousness to people from all walks of life with its programs that are full of informative features. However, it cannot be avoided that in some of their programs and magazines, they feature some prominent people. It’s in this aspect that artist release forms come into play. In order for National Geographic to be able to freely use the image of that person in both its television programs and magazine covers, they would need that person to sign an artist release form.
An artist release form covers photographs, music, and artwork that are subject to copyright and cannot be used without permission. In order for institutions like National Geographic and radio stations to either use photographs or music (in the case of a radio station), the person or artist involved will need to give permission to these institutions by signing the release form authorizing them to use their image on the magazine cover or air their music over the radio station.
An artist release form covers provisions like copyright transfer of copyrighted materials such as photographs, music, and artwork to the user but states the limits of the usage for a particular period only. It may also cover the avenues of where such photographs or artworks can be displayed. For organizations with business ventures, the artist release form may be used as a form to promote the image, artwork, or song, which will generate revenues and can become profitable for both parties. In this case, the artist’s agent usually does the negotiations and the artist will sign only after the provision will be beneficial to him or her.

For some painters, having their works displayed on cafes, restaurants, and even bars mean a greater chance of exposure. For this reason, an artist release form will come useful for the promotion of the artist’s work, giving free use of his work on the establishment in hopes of having one of his works sold or being noticed by an agency, which will be a platform for the artist’s promotion of his work.
