Dear Cadw: Welsh Historic Monuments,

I understand that you allow commercial reuse (of images) and that
service is a source of income for Cadw.

First, How much exactly was that income over the last five years?

Second, what is the average number of images sent out to a paying
customer?

Third, how much do you charge per photograph at different
resolutions?

Lastly, what were the total costs for providing this service i.e.
the time and expense of marketing and fulfilling this service to
the customers over the last five years?

Dear Devine, Vincent (DH - CADW),

Many thanks for your reply. You say in your response:

Since 2010, the sale of images has been undertaken by the Visit
Wales Image Centre (part of the larger Visit Wales Creative
Services team) on behalf of Cadw.

Can you tell me when in 2010 did this happen and secondly what
income have you received from them, or do they keep the income
received as Royalties?

What I'd like to know is: how much revenue did the images generate?

Many thanks.

Yours sincerely,

Llywelyn

Dear Devine, Vincent (DH - CADW),

My request is for revenue information based on all Cadw images sold
to third parties / customers. You imply that the sale of copies of
all Cadw images is being dealt with by Visit Wales. Is this
correct?

Can you confirm whether or not all original photographs and
digitised photograph images are also being held by Visit Wales?

Yours sincerely,

Llywelyn
