The SAFREAN: December 2016

Bringing you the latest news in South African freelancing





Dear Safreans,

You are reading the final SAFREA newsletter for 2016! 

As we sign off from what has been an eventful year, to say the least, I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for the well-wishes on the birth of our son, Oliver. So far, it’s been a crazy happy adventure, and I know it’s just beginning. 

I hope this year has been a productive one for you and that SAFREA has contributed to your successes in some way. As an organisation committed to providing advocacy and support to its members, SAFREA has become the most reliable resource for media freelancers in South Africa. My wish for next year is that we continue to feel proud of this incredible community we’ve built. 

If you know a freelancer who would benefit from joining SAFREA, consider purchasing an annual membership for them – it makes a great holiday gift. If you'd like to sponsor a new member, please get in touch with Bruce at

Thank you for all the hard work you’ve put into this year. I look forward to 2017 and all that it brings.





We look forward to offering you more news and highlights in 2017.

Look out for more news and updates on the SAFREA website and social media outlets. 






If you think your profile could use a bit of extra publicity, please get in touch with Cherry at to be featured in our Member Spotlight section starting up again in February 2017.

We checked in with last month's featured member, Tamara Oberholster, who had this to say about being in the SAFREAN spotlight: 

"I appreciate the work SAFREA is doing to showcase members and the skills we offer in our various fields. Profiling us in the newsletter and on the social media platforms is yet another way the association is helping to promote freelancing and freelancers in SA."
