When you use a Coo-ee licenced image:

  • If you use an image from Coo-ee for an editorial publication or film production, you will be required to credit the image with an acknowledgement that reads: Name of photographer/ Coo-ee Picture Library. We will provide you with all the details you’ll need to do this on your invoice.

  • Before your publication or film is publicly released, we require one file copy (PDF, video, photocopy, etc.) of the published work which includes the Coo-ee licenced images.
