Freelance & Part-Time Journalists
For self-employed and part-time journalists or bloggers, getting a foothold in the world of media - a world that is partial to journalists from well-known newspapers, TV or radio stations - can be difficult. This is also, if not even more, a problem when it comes to professional journalism organizations and labor unions. Many organizations leave freelance photographers or freelance journalists out in the cold, as membership is often conditional upon full-time employment.
IAPP sees things differently
We want to give everybody a fair chance, because we believe that many freelancers and part-timers produce work that is on par with, if not better than, the work of their full-time colleagues. Freelancers who are denied the benefits of a professional organization all too often find themselves facing closed doors. Becoming an IAPP member is a worthwhile step that will help freelancers make their everyday work a little easier.
