History of the organisation
VISDA (formerly Copydan Billeder) has been building bridges between artists and customers since 1986. We currently represent more than 2,500 Danish artists and, through cooperation with our foreign affiliates, a total of more than 160,000 international artists.

We have a wide-ranging national and international customer network, which uses art in teaching materials, books, films, museums, TV and internet content, within their organisations, and in many other contexts as well.

VISDA is authorised by the Danish Ministry of Culture to negotiate image licenses which cover all artists and photographers.

We have also been appointed by the Danish Ministry of Culture to pay out remuneration to artists for the use of their works in various contexts and for the commercial resale of their art.

VISDA is a non-profit organisation. The money goes back to the artists – and thereby helps to stimulate the production of new art. We are an autonomous, independent association and part of the Copydan House administrative community.
