Press cards and community journalists The article on community journalism in the last edition of The Journalist may have given the misleading impression that the NUJ is helping the Independent Community News Network (ICNN) to get press card recognition and community journalists to obtain press cards. The article does not state that all


community journalists should be given a press card, but the ICNN launch section says they’re ‘working with the NUJ’ on the issue. It is very unlikely the ICNN will


become a gatekeeper for the UK Press Card Authority (UKPCA); most community journalists will not qualify under UKPCA rules if they are not being paid for their newsgathering. The UKPCA establishes the eligibility


criteria for holding a press card, and the NUJ has no plans to change the union’s rules on which member categories are eligible to apply. NUJ associate members (which would


cover community journalist volunteers) are not eligible to apply for a press card. To paraphrase, the criteria are that a


professional media worker’s employment (or self-employment) is wholly or significantly concerned with newsgathering. The writer of the article raised


concerns about community journalists accessing official meetings, but she should have contacted the NUJ to find


out what ‘working with the NUJ’ means and clarified that in the piece. Simon Chapman Chair, Journalist Editorial Advisory Board


Word-length restrictions prevented my going into further detail on the issue of press cards and the NUJ. But before the ICNN launch, Emma Mees and Matt Abbott had twice attended the Welsh Executive Council (WEC) to talk about their work, aims and issues – including press cards. As a result, the WEC submitted a motion to the NUJ’s recent Delegate Meeting in Southport – which was carried. Debated in the Recruitment and


Retention section, it instructed the National Executive Council “to develop a strategy aimed at securing strong union membership in this (hyperlocal) growing sector, including: “Engaging with the Centre for


Community Journalism at Cardiff University and the recently established Independent Community News Network that it hosts to maximise the possibility of hyperlocal journalists qualifying for full NUJ membership and, where appropriate, press cards.” Jenny Sims Freelance Member, Wales Executive Council Member, Freelance Industrial Council

@mschrisbuckley a fantastic piece in the March-April edition about amateur photographers charging. As an amateur myself I will be using this advice and charging for any photos used.
