Mediakunta is a non-profit-making community of freelancers doing journalism and media gigs. The idea that we work together and that freelancing is something to be proud of.
Mediakunta eases your situation as someone working freelance gigs, as you do not have the obligations of being an entrepreneur. Mediakunta employs its members during journalism and media work gigs. We invoice the clients for the work done and make statutory deductions from your pay. We handle the billing and paperwork for you. We are non-profit-making, and all members’ contributions are used directly to benefit the membership.
As a cooperative we are the sum of our members. To join Mediakunta and work as one of its members you have to be a member of the Union of Journalists in Finland (UJF). We provide our members with networking opportunities, advocacy in members’ interests and training. We know the media sector and provide members with UJF and co-worker support. Being part of the cooperative improves your status on the jobs market in working freelance gigs. We can assist with such things as determining sufficient rates of pay.
