Frontline Freelance Register (FFR) is run by freelancers, for freelancers. FFR is open to actively working, international freelance foreign and conflict journalists who take physical risks in their work, and sign up to the Code of Conduct. We aim to provide members with representation and a sense of community, vital in this fragmented profession.
Championing journalistic best practice and the observation of industry-level safety standards, FFR works with organisations that provide support to, or employ the services of, its members – to better support those members.
The Code of Conduct that the FFR’s members commit to upholding demonstrates their commitment to professionalism while conducting their work.
The FFR was launched on June 7 2013 along with the publication of the Frontline Club white paper, Newsgathering Safety and the Welfare of Freelancers.
