Update to minimum rates
A reminder that the updated rates take effect next month. The minimum rate for drawing will increase to $40.00 per hour, for a minimum of two hours, as of 1 July 2019.

In no way do we think this reflects the true value of modeling, and it simply represents the bare minimum our members will accept. We continue to encourage models to charge what they feel is fair for their skills and the venues ability to pay.

Inaugural LMS Art Prize:
As part of our 30th Anniversary celebrations, the LMS committee is running an art prize and exhibition to be held in December 2019. This is for artworks started and completed in 2019 which feature a current LMS Model.

Update to minimum rates
It was decided at the Annual General Meeting, held 3 March 2019, that the minimum rate for drawing will increase to $40.00 per hour, for a minimum of two hours, as of 1 July 2019.

The LMS members believe that this rate reflects the value of models' time. The minimum rate has not been increased since 2015 and along with increasing congestion around Melbourne the cost of living has increased significantly in that time.

From 1 July, 2019, as models, we must ensure we do not accept jobs at less than $40.00 per hour. As artists, conveners and venues, we must ensure we do not offer jobs at less than $40.00 per hour.

Thank you all for your involvement in the LMS. We're looking forward to celebrating our 30th Anniversary with you this year.
