In this survey, freelancers are asked about their professional experience and remuneration. Since 2016, the findings of this survey have helped freelancers identify risks and trends in the sector and benchmark their rates against the fees most often charged by other South African freelancers for similar work. The data also helps Safrea and its partners support freelancers in the media and communication sector through professional development and advocacy.
The survey is open to freelance graphic designers, videographers, PR professionals, journalists, voice-over artists, podcasters, translators and interpreters, copywriters and editors among others.
