CAPIC is the collective voice and advocate for professional photographers, illustrators, and digital artists in Canada. We work hard to maintain industry standards, create a community, fight for copyright protection, and much more. Our work helps all the professionals in our industry, but only members benefit fully. As a professional association, CAPIC’s mission is to promote quality and creativity, as well as good business practices.
CAPIC was founded in 1978 as a national not-for-profit association dedicated to safeguarding and promoting the rights and interests of photographers, illustrators, and recently, digital artists, working in the communications industry. Starting as a single group in Toronto, CAPIC has grown to six chapters, spanning the country from Halifax to Vancouver.
As a member of CAPIC, you will be a part of a strong network of professionals. CAPIC is THE reference for professional image creators in Canada and the business practices that result. Throughout the years, CAPIC has worked hard to improve the recognition of image creators in Canadian Copyright Law and to educate its members, partners, and the public about Artists’ Rights. Thanks to these efforts, Canadians image creators now officially own the copyright to all of their work whether the photograph is commissioned or not.
CAPIC continues its efforts to support image creators through the creation or resources such as fee schedules and business practice surveys which are designed as a necessary reference for any illustrator or photographer getting started in the industry.
A principal requirement of membership is reproduction and distribution of members work. CAPIC members create visual content for the Canadian communications industry and play a key role in defining the Canadian identity and point of view.
