Is there a cost?

Yes, the memberships are fee-based. These fees cover our costs to maintain and run the website efficiently and professionally, as well as contribute towards marketing, advertising and growing the site.

StoryBookIllustrators.com is dedicated to providing a professional online presence and service. To make our best efforts in this regard our administrative staff personally review and approve almost all of the content that is posted on the website. This process helps to protect the artists of StoryBookIllustrators.com while maintaining the integrity and professionalism of the site.

In addition, StoryBookIllustrators.com does not allow any outside advertising on any member pages including portfolio, gallery or biography pages, the illustrator/agency index, main galleries or the published books gallery etc. You can always be assured that your portfolio and other information is professionally displayed. Any select advertisements chosen to run on the site are individually approved and must be relevant to the industry. These ads will only run on secondary pages such as resource, interview, article or similar pages.
