Frontline Freelance Register launched for freelancers regularly exposed to risk.
Thursday, 06 June 2013 Written by Rory Peck Trust

Launched today by the Frontline Club, the Frontline Freelance Register (FFR) will be run by freelancers for freelancers. Its aim is to provide freelance foreign and conflict journalists with representation and a sense of community.

Championing journalistic best practice and the observation of industry-level safety standards, the FFR will work with organisations that provide support to, or employ the services of, its members – to better support those members.

All members have to sign up to the FFR Code of Conduct that demonstrates their commitment to professionalism while conducting their work.

For more information, and to sign up, visit the FFR Website.

New safety report also launched by Frontline

The Frontline Club also launched today a white paper looking at how news organisations and journalists who work in hostile environments might further improve safety in newsgathering.

The report is especially concerned with the wellbeing of the burgeoning international community of freelance contributors to newsgathering, and includes a contribution on Digital Security from RPT's Online Producer, Andrew Lyons. Get the full report.
