What we do
To be a clear and representative voice for the United Kingdom image licensing industry.
Who we represent
BAPLA represents image licensors. Founded in 1975, BAPLA is the UK trade association for picture libraries and agencies, now incorporating a broad and diverse membership.
BAPLA members range from the biggest names in the business to smaller, specialist collections. Between them they offer an enormous range of high quality pictures across all subjects, together with price structures and licence types to service all requirements.
The Image Suppliers section of the website is designed to help you find the image supplier - and therefore the images - you need.
