“All seemed to share an intense conviction that the world needs to be photographed if it is to be understood: that the medium exists to make us look again, to see the world with fresh eyes, in all its astounding complexity.”

Michael Ignatieff, ’03

Frontline Freelance Register

We are very excited to let you all know about the Frontline Freelance Register (FFR) which has launched today. The FFR is a representative body for freelancers who work in foreign or conflict journalism. It is created and run by freelancers.

The FFR’s core objective is to support the physical and mental well-being of freelance journalists. In a world where staff jobs and fully paid foreign assignments are increasingly scarce, foreign and war reporting is dominated by freelancers, many of whom are deeply committed professionals doing outstanding work. At the same time, many of these freelancers lack the institutional support and the financial means to adequately manage the challenges of operating in dangerous environments in the long term. They also lack organised representation, often leaving them at the mercy of powerful media groups. FFR aims to help freelancers by providing them with a forum, a representative body and a critical mass to face some of these challenges.

You can find out more or apply on our website. We have launch events in London and Istanbul tomorrow night, PM or comment for more information. We’re on twitter ffregister and on FB. For press packs and interview opportunities email: <a href="mailto:pressfrontlinefreelance.org">press@frontlinefreelance.org.

We look forward to working with you!
