Society of Artists Agents
- Week 1
Established in 1992, The Society of Artists Agents (SAA) is a group of like-minded Agents who collectively represent nearly 1000 World Class Illustrators. Their aim is to promote the use of quality illustration and encourage the very highest standards of professionalism for the mutual benefit of clients, illustrators and fellow agents. The Society of Artists Agents aim to nurture new talent as well as promote established artists throughout the world and they believe that together, they’re stronger at protecting the rights of illustrators by challenging fee erosion and inequitable contracts. The SAA invite creative graduates nationwide, to attend portfolio surgeries. This programme gives students an insight into what agents and commissioners look for in an illustrator’s portfolio, giving them a head start in industry. Many of our members have strong links with University Course Leaders, often giving talks and offering work experience to students.
Some of the SAA members are on the board of the AOI and many are involved in their educational events.
