A Campaign Against Free Content
Free images destroy the market and thus also stifle creativity, because Likes won't pay the rent or the next round. What you really can do with them is to generate traffic as a site operator and then sell it on for a profit.
With #NotForFree we are demonstrating that there are always people behind each (free) image. People who have spent time, effort and money to produce these works. Even if you actually came to us for free material, you might understand our position that only paid content is good content.
The images in this collection are free to use but they may not be altered in any way and they really should be used in the context of this campaign only.
If you are an artist and want to take part, please send us your creative statement. Print out your favourite image, write the hashtag #NotForFree across it, hold it up and take a selfie. Or write the hashtag on your hand and hold it up to the camera. Or carve #NotForFree in sand and take a picture of yourself lying next to it. Spray it on the wall, get a tattoo - anything goes. The only thing that matters is that you are visible, because we want to show that it is people who create these images.
