About the AFJ
Association of Freelance Journalists in Finland (AFJ) is a member organization of the Union of Journalists in Finland. AFJ members, of which we have about 1 400, are mostly freelance journalists working for the press.
Our membership includes the range of skilled media professionals – photographers, reporters, videographers, translators and graphic artists, as well as broadcasters.
AFJ promotes the interests of members by informing them about current issues, taking positions on the development of the sector, and by providing them with training. The mission of the association is to improve its members’ working conditions, financial status and social security.
AFJ members do not as a rule belong to an employees’ unemployment fund. As entrepreneurs they take care of their own pension, sickness and unemployment cover.
The press freelancers’ grants governing board disburses stipends for members’ professional training. AFJ organises training for members for developing their professional skills and advancement in their work.
