SA Freelance Media Industry & Rates Report

SAFREA publishes an annual SA Freelance Media Industry and Rates Report, which aims to understand the nature of the freelance media industry and also track valuable information and data such as composition of the sector, the challenges faced and possible interventions. The rates indicator is a critical tool to assist freelancers in benchmarking their remuneration.

Please note: SAFREA in no way intends to dictate pricing for the media and communications sector through the publication of the annual rates trends report. It is merely a benchmarking tool based on the rates charged by the respondents of the survey.
