HackPack’s Freelance Rates Survey

We’re looking to help journalists, photographers, videographers and fixers clarify the going freelance rates across the globe.

HackPack is bringing transparency to the industry by identifying average prices for freelance work paid around the world. We’re looking for your help in uniting the brain trust and clarifying the going rates for journalists, photographers, videographers and fixers. This way you know what to charge and clients will offer you appropriate wages.

In order to develop this tool, we have launched HackPack’s Freelance Journalism survey. Media professionals around the world are invited to share their experiences. We’ll then gather the information, organize it and share it back with the community.

Following the completion of the survey, we will publish our results and create a price listing that you’ll be able to use to help you in charging clients.
