The SAFREAN: November 2017
Bringing you the latest news in South African freelancing
MESSAGE FROM SAFREA
The year may be drawing to a close, but there's still a lot happening at SAFREA. First and foremost, allow us to introduce our newly-elected Executive and Oversight Committees, who were inaugurated in mid-October.
We are confident that Ravin, Stephen and the rest of the team will steer SAFREA into exciting new waters and thank them for making time to take on these new roles.
Special thanks also to the talented Natalie Field for our beautiful newsletter photos this month. Some of you may have spotted Natalie at the Photo & Film Expo in Joburg a couple of weeks ago, where she gave an informative talk.
If you are a photographer and want to add your work to our growing SAFREA image library, please get in touch with our social media manager, Laura Dubber.
Wishing you all a super-charged November.
SAFREA IN THE NEWS
"On October 17, the announcement of the seventh Minister of Communications since 2009 could not cloud the mood of media practitioners as they celebrated court rulings pivotal to the independent functioning of the SABC."
It is with great excitement that SAFREA shares the news of two major wins for a more independent public broadcaster and greater media freedom in South Africa.
15 November: SAFREA Gauteng South Coffee Club meets at Better Joburg at 10:30am. Look out for their Xmas party in December!

Ravin brings extensive experience in journalism, PR and strategic communication to the role, and we are excited to have him at the helm. He's a bit camera shy, but you can read more about Ravin here.
