Purpose

EVA represents the interests of collecting societies for the visual arts at EU level. EVA was founded in 1997 by 9 societies and has today 28 members and observers. All member societies are collective management organisations for authors of visual works such as painters, sculptors, illustrators, designers, street artists, photojournalists and photographers. More than 130 000 authors are represented by its members. EVA’s objective is to improve the visual authors’ legal situation with a focus on authors’ rights.
