In July West Elm came to Twenty20 to find authentic images that would be sold as wall art in their Spring Collection. There were a series of photo Challenges to narrow the selection, and then West Elm chose their favorite photos. The winners were announced, it’s almost spring, and the prints are now available online!

You can see the wall art here on the West Elm site.

Congratulations to all the winners! Check out their Twenty20 Galleries and congratulate them on their excellent work.

    What payment did the photographers receive through Twenty20 for these photos? A large file can be purchased from Twenty20 for $50 and photographers receive 20% ($10). Does that fee cover buying files that can be printed an unlimited number of times as a ‘product’ such as West Elm is doing here:

    West Elm are selling the prints for $149 each so if they are paying $50 for the image files, they’d pretty much make their money back on their first sale after printing/framing cost. Perhaps there is a different licensing cost associated with purchasing files for product sales that isn’t very well explained in your FAQs. If so, can the pages regarding licensing please be updated to cover costs of images to be used in products.

      Thank you for asking that Steve!

        Cheers maria. I’m still patiently waiting for a reply. In the meantime I’ve looked into Twenty20’s terms some more and am hoping for some discussion. It would be nice to get some other members/photographers involved so that we can give feedback and discuss how our own interests are being considered.

        • Hey Steve and Maria!

          West Elm bought the photos under an extended license (different from the standard offered on the website). They will deduct production costs from the sale price, which can vary depending on different promotions. Twenty20 is paying 100% of the commission to the photographers. In a nutshell, that number could vary but will be much larger. Hope this helps!
